"Skills are enhanced and relationships started"
The menu choices were excellent, simple, and elegant. You learn fun secrets to enhance the visual Presentation as well as enhancing the flavors of your cuisine. But you learn that you are among friends who will share many insightful and interesting facts about the region you are staying in. You come as strangers but leave as friends

"A perfect experience for food, wine and friends"
I really enjoyed my week at the Kerrouet House. Paul taught me so many different skills and recipes in the kitchen. I made some great friends and had some wonderful meals and walks in the country. It is a special place and a wonderful experience for anyone who has a passion for cooking, food, wine and meeting people from all over.
