Classic French cuisine Cookery demonstrations at La Souqueto B&B Languedoc accommodation

During 2014 at La Souqueto B&B Languedoc accommodation, we have organised a selection of bespoke cookery demonstrations for our guests at our town house in Mirepeisset. As these have been so well received we are now going to continue to offer demonstrations throughout the year.  Themes will include: Classic French sauces, favourite Languedoc dishes, ideas for Christmas, Seasonal recipes.

Some of these pictures were taken from a very recent two day Course prepared for two couples staying with us from New Zealand . The first day our cookery expert Vivienne drove her students to Narbonne to visit the covered market Les Halles where the guests were encouraged to select ingredients which took their fancy. They returned for a coffee before preparing lunch and a light evening meal. Under instruction they made Oysters, www.bouzigues.fr/‎, serrano ham and Brie, stuffed with fresh walnuts and figs. A roasted courge soup and an almond and orange cake were also prepared. They then sat down for an un-hurried lunch with a selected Minervois wine appropriate for the Oysters.

The next day they made a baby squid and chorizo salad with olives and chick peas, a roasted, stuffed pintade, prune and armagnac sauce, with bacon and chestnut cabbage, followed by a spiced pear ‘tarte tatin’.

Why not combine a short stay at La Souqueto B&B Languedoc accommodation with a days cookery class. It makes the perfect birthday or Christmas present. As we can accommodate up to 10 people, we also welcome groups.
