Discover Normandy: 4-night
About the location: The beautiful region of Normandy has something for everyone, from 350 miles of rolling coastlines to a rich culture and history. There is also, of course, a world-class gastronomy here, one known for its hearty dishes made with regional produce, as well as seafood, dairy herds, and presalé lambs. Whether you choose the 4-night or 6-night stay, you'll experience a rural way of life in the northwestern part of France, as your hosts introduce you to the art de vivre à la française, where socializing and meals are an integral part of everyday life. Your cooking courses will be at an 18th-century restored farmhouse, located in the breathtakingly beautiful Cotentin Peninsula in a tiny, typical Norman village. The farmhouse is also located just a few miles from the nearest sandy beaches and less than 15 miles from the lively port town of Cherbourg. This trip is perfect for history and food lovers alike.
About the cooking courses: While your hostess, Sinéad, is Irish by birth, she and her husband Philippe, the local veterinarian, have lived in Normandy for more than two decades now. Sinéad quickly realized that her culinary background transcended borders and she delved into the gastronomy and way of life of her new home. In your cooking classes, she will introduce you to Normandy's best and freshest ingredients and rich flavors.
