    "Outstanding French Holiday!"

    Adam and Caroline are hosts extraordinaire! From the initial welcome to the final goodbye, they make their guests feel apart of their family and friends. Adam is a patient instructor and makes the preparation of gourmet dishes appear achievable and fun. Caroline is an incredible artist in metal clay jewelry and willing to share her talents with novices. This vacation was a perfect balance of activity and relaxation.

    Spent an excellent week at Baron Figues with Adam and Caroline. Enjoyed the cooking lessons and preparing the evening meals. No shortage of good food and wine throughout the week. Good balance of activities and down time. Beautiful setting in the french countryside.

    "Fabulous time at Baron Figue"

    I really enjoyed being with these wonderful people. Their kindness, positivity, warmth, and hospitality made this experience unforgettable. Adam’s knowledge of food and wine, and his relationship with the people in the towns near his made my stay even more interesting and fun. Ours was a great group, and we enjoyed our time at the farmhouse with our ‘new family’, and loved experiencing the villages and community around us.

    "French Cooking School"

    Adam did a wonderful job of providing 3 gourmet meals per day in addition to superb cooking demonstrations! He also supplied the menus for all of the meals that we had throughout the week!

    "Perfect from Beginning to End"

    Standing with friends you have made throughout the week, as dusk falls on the French countryside around you, and you compare the merits of various Champagnes and eat the foie gras you have prepared... perfect.

    Our Culinary Vacation experience was like spending a week visiting with friends in their beautiful home. Caroline and Adam made us feel welcomed and comfortable from our first moments. We loved the trips to markets, chateaus for wine tastings, walks through the countryside with groups of neighborhood friends that Caroline arranged, and exploring the little villages and the city of Bordeaux. Adam always knew just what we should see or to whom we should speak. And then there was the food.... Adam is both a patient instructor and incredible chef. The food was absolutely amazing. It really was a perfect experience from beginning to end.

    "Missing the cheese already"

    Fabulous wine and cheese. Days exploring the French local cuisines. Nights full of Apero's and laughs.

    Adam and Caroline are such amazing hosts and create an environment full of laughs. Adam makes cooking amazing food look so easy even for some beginners.

    The trips to the local areas were great being able to wander beautiful country towns full of cobblestones and history.

    And the cheese, the cheese made by the local producers are to die for. There really is no substitute for tasting local cuisine made simply.

    "Food, wine & history "

    From the moment we arrived we found 2 new friends - incredible hosts - quite laid back. Adam is an incredible chef and along with Caroline fantastic hosts.

    Nothing was too much trouble and on one occasion we went to a night market, and although we were already fed, I said I must have some snails that I had seen in the market and Adam instantly appeared with a bowl to try!! They took us to so many places we would have never seen without them and what a luxury to be driven somewhere different every day. Next time I will return to do Caroline's jewelry making course. A must place to go!!
