    "Hello Jane and Stephane... You lovely, lovely people. "

    " "

    "Well, we are back home now and even for high summer, England feels rather damp, chilly and uninspiring!"

    " "

    "Our second week in Issigeac was great and many adventures were enjoyed exploring the countryside and Bastide towns all around your golden slice of France. "

    " "

    "However, our time at La Cambe has been truly the best; very special indeed. You will both be all too familiar with glowing plaudits of admiration and gratitude, from other visitors before, nevertheless we need to pitch in with ours too. Jane and Stephane have created a wonderful holiday retreat and gourmet experience. A beautiful culinary exploration of exquisite cuisine using the very best of local produce; an opportunity that has been a pleasure a privilege to share with you. Generous, relaxing, rewarding, lacking nothing."

    " "

    "Your most excellent residential gourmet course was for me quite inspirational and already I have some encouraging feedback from Maggie, though of course this may in large part be down to the outstanding quality of your book of delicious recipes."

    " "

    "You have set the balance of all La Cambe’s attributes in perfect harmony. The thoughtful design and combination of elements flow in natural and easy patterns throughout, whether they be in summer colours and perfumes across warm lawns and gardens or by way of the most exquisite gastronomic delights and wines to accompany the sparkle of your white porcelain or cut glass."

    " "

    "Thank you both and congratulations on your exceptional achievements. Indeed, thank you to Google too, for leading us to such a wonderful treasure trove."

    " "

    "We will be back!"

    "I hadn't realized, until I met Jane and Stef, that I was capable of taking entertaining at home to a new level, without having to resort to outside caterers. I thought it was only for professionals until they showed me how."

    "I would highly recommend Jane's cooking school, as much for the experience as for the cooking itself. Jane was a delightful and knowledgeable teacher that made the class a lot of fun. The kitchen and house, as well as the grounds, are beautiful and we enjoyed our meal outside on the terrace with its lovely view. I learned new techniques, as well as lots of little helpful tips. I made dishes that were gourmet but also easy and left with some new recipes, ideas, and lots of notes. It was surprising to find this level of culinary teaching skill in the small village of Monflanquin."
