Gourmet Cooking Holidays Testimonials

Janet Hull, OBE, business director, London, UK

“I hadn’t realised until I met Jane & Stef that I was capable of taking entertaining at home to a new level without having to resort to outside caterers. I thought it was only for professionals until they showed me how.”

Sandra March, London, Ontario, Canada

"I would highly recommend Jane's cooking school, as much for the experience as for the cooking itself. Jane was a delightful and knowledgeable teacher and made the class a lot of fun. The kitchen and house and grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed our meal outside on the terrace with its lovely view.

I learned new techniques as well as lots of little helpful tips, and made dishes that were gourmet but also easy, and left with some new recipes, ideas and lots of notes. It was surprising to find this level of culinary teaching skill in the small village of Monflanquin."

Becky Gilley, Cambridge, UK

"Thank you again for a wonderful week in your beautiful home. We had a lovely holiday, made extra special by the wonderful surroundings and great food, wish we had chance to have you cook for us more often!"

Mike Holloway, Doncaster, UK

"We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the Jane & Stephane experience. I cant tell you how many photos we took of that view from the end of the pool over the fields towards Monflanquin but it is a very special place and we feel priviledged to have stayed there. I returned to work today and have been singing its praises, especially the food which we really enjoyed. Sitting on your terrace last Wednesday evening with lovely food and wine (courtesy of Stephane), the rainbow and such fantastic light was very special indeed."

Rebecca Anthony

"A beautiful & tranquil setting. Excellent accommodation- well equiped but private from the discrete on-site owners. The owners cooked us a beautiful meal - it was the best meal we had on our honeymoon!"
