My daughter and I enjoyed the trip immensely.  Both of us have had rave reviews from friends about our fabulous desserts from Chef Marthe. The pork and cabbage entree from the cooking school on our day with Patti has been greeted with oohs and aahs by all who tasted it. Who could possibly forget all those chocolates, pastries and breads we had on the afternoon tour. My idea of a perfect lunch!  My daughter, Nancy and I are looking forward to doing another tour with The International Kitchen in the near future.  Elizabeth H., SC

Dear International Kitchen Team, Thank you for the most wonderful holiday ever!! Chef Marthe and Chef Dominique were absolutely fantastic and Adaline on the gourmet walking tour was an absolute gem!! The accommodation in both Paris and the one you organised for Barcelona were stunning - such friendly and helpful staff and in the absolute best locations with all the amenities. I will definitely book my future gourmet vacations with you. [Regarding The International Kitchen staff:] Everyone I spoke with responded very quickly, were exceptionally friendly and very helpful.

I loved the French pastry class the most! The chef was very nice and patient with us. The pastries that we made were easy to make and I liked how she gave us the recipes as well! The traditional French cooking class was great as well! The chef knew a lot about the art of preparing and cooking a meal and he taught us well. [Regarding the cooking vacation packet:] Everything was great! [Regarding The International Kitchen staff:] I was happy with the help of the staff! Ryan B. & Kim V., MN
