Cooking in Brittany

Brittany juts out into the sea from the northern shores of France, and it offers an intriguing mix of Celtic and French cultures. Its stunning, craggy shores, megalithic monuments, and medieval castles seem lifted from Arthurian legend. See firsthand landscapes that have been inspiring awe in visitors for centuries, all while exploring the best of Breton, French, and European cuisine during hands-on cooking courses.

Join us for an intensive cooking week in this mythic land, where French flavors will come alive!
