Culinary holiday with a Master Chef in France

Written by on October 24, 2018 in Rhône Alpes, Tours in France

If you love food, and all things French – you’re going to fall head over heels for a very special event taking place in 2019 in France: Master Chef at the Maison.

There’s nothing else quite like this unique week-long break in the gorgeous Haute-Pyrenees at the luxury mansion Le Belvedere, where you’ll spend 8 days and learn to cook with fabulous, internationally renowned Master Chef Alain Fabrégues.

The most amazing and unique French food and wine. Ever

Spend a week with Australia’s most famous, highly awarded Master Chef Alain Fabrégues. He has an awesome array of awards Meilleur Ouvrier de France (M.O.F), Chevalier de L Ordre du Mérite Agricole and Chevalier du Mérite National – and he’s a chef who loves to share his savoire-faire and skills.

As a child, Chef Fabrégues spent summer holidays in this area that’s famous for its unspoiled beauty and sensational regional produce cheeses and honey, charcuterie, foie gras and wines.

A culinary vacation like no other

You’ll eat the most delicious meals prepared by Chef Fabrégues and you’ll enjoy daily cooking lessons with him, preparing local specialities and then savouring them afterwards.

You’ll discover this stunning region and visit one of the oldest farmers markets in the region where the cheeses and charcuterie and specialities are second to none. You’ll visit an Armagnac cellar where you’ll do a very special tasting, forage for mushrooms in the forest and wild berries in the hedgerows. And, your Master Chef will accompany you, adding his own notes and anecdotes to an already perfect visit.

You’ll cook up a storm in the manor house kitchen – and truffled dishes! Then enjoy your sensational dishes with wines personally chosen by the chef from all over France, legendary wine producing areas such as Bordeaux, Medoc and the Languedoc as well as fine Champagnes.

An icon of French cooking with two famous restaurants – Bistro des Artistes (Melbourne) and The Loose Box (Perth) – Alain Fabrégues will show you how to cook, sharing his years of experience and fine honed skills. You’ll never cook the same way again.

Accommodation

You’ll be staying at the stunning, historic Manor house Le Belvedere close to Lourdes, the French Capital of Miracles. The three-hundred-year-old house has been lovingly renovated, is luxurious and roomy and perfect for foodies and chefs. You’ll dine under the stars by candlelight on the terrace with its view over the mountains. The pleasure you will derive from drinking the best wines and Champagnes, and from eating the most exquisite dishes  – which you will learn to cook, a skill you’ll always have – is simply sublime.

This is a holiday that will be a lot of fun, fabulously entertaining and utterly, utterly delicious.
