Cooking class in a chateau

We found an “experience” on Airbnb that sounded fun – a cooking class by a  woman who was formerly a chef in Paris and now moved to the country where she and her husband run a bed and breakfast, wedding venue and cooking class, plus meals on reservation. 

First the drive which was about 1 ½ hours to near Monflanquin to Chateau Ladausse.

St Vincent de Cosse
Typical narrow road and bridge
Railroad bridge at Belvès 

And on to the cooking – it was a hands on class with Diane showing us the techniques. It was just three of us – Bill and I and Rene from Montreal, Canada.

Learning technique
Ready to bake – those are assorted local plums on top
Rene is a butcher so he had some improvements to make to the lamb

The meal – it was wonderful!
Diane’s husband Eric joined us

Then a slow drive home with an ending in the hot tub!
