This week long holiday is all about great food, wine and the amazing Loire Valley with its chateaux, vineyards and gorgeous scenery.

You’ll visit the wonderful street markets for supplies, delicious cheeses and cepes, artisan made bread, wonderful fruit and vegetables and local products.

In the chateau’s grand kitchen you’ll learn how to prepare sauces and sorbets, bread, souffles and soups. You’ll go through classic cooking techniques from cutting to searing, artistic plating and menu planning.

An amazing gastronomic holiday

Chef Walter Eagleton will be your very own private chef preparing sensational gourmet meals for you. There will be wine-tasting sessions, visits to the local highlights from chateaux to vineyards and picturesque towns. Chinon with its beautiful castle, the gorgeous Chateau de Chenonceau and Angers are all on the itinerary. Because this is a small group tour, you may even customise the itinerary.

You’ll be driven everywhere so you can relax and, if you want to taste more of that wine that tastes like nectar, feel free because you don’t have to drive or find your way back to your chateau.
