L’Age Baston is a beautiful, friendly château in south-west France that provides relaxing holiday courses.
Your host and French country cooking tutor, Alexandra Waddington, has been resident boss of the L’Age Baston kitchens for the last 20 years. Her specialties are pastries, tarts, terrines and sauces and she favors dishes that have a distinctive regional character using produits de terroir like Pineau, Cognac, walnuts, saffron, soft and subtle goat cheeses, rillettes, canard (the list is quite extensive). Her repertoire is large and her recipe book is impressive. Her ability to create memorable meals from fresh, simple ingredients is outstanding.
