A Culinary Adventure at Le Calabash: Special 4-night Itinerary
Yzeures-sur-Creuse (Indre et Loire)
The Loire Valley is a land of delicious goat cheese and breathtakingly beautiful chateaux. Stay in one such chateau near the river Creuse during a cooking vacation with the chefs of Le Calabash cooking school. This special four-night trip includes many aspects of the school's regular program on a condensed schedule, while still offering something new, including new dishes as well as a trip to the charming town of Tours.
Your chateau accommodations are located among the rolling hills of the Vienne region, and designed in a Belle Epoque and Art Nouveau style that dates back to the 1850s. With just five rooms, the chateau offers a luxurious and peaceful getaway in the heart of the Loire Valley.
About the lessons: Chef Sidney and Alison will lead your introduction to new flavors and techniques, while still allowing you to use your own imagination and creativity. While a cooking school, the chefs have perfected the art of tailoring their classes to the skill levels of their students. At Le Calabash, you'll be cooking without boundaries since, while you'll primarily discover French cuisine, Chef Sidney was born and raised in Southern Africa. Both Chef Sidney and Alison have cooked for heads of state and celebrities, including Queen Elizabeth II, and won numerous international medals for their cuisine.
