We offer 6-day hands-on gourmet cookery holidays. Top chefs, luxury accommodation, set in France - the home of gourmet cuisine.
Over the years, I’ve seen all kinds of chefs and teaching approaches and I believe that learning to cook should be a pleasure. I’ve got an eye for detail but while I’ll always be passionate about gourmet cooking, you won’t find me taking myself too seriously. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen so it’s got to be friendly and fun.

This is quite honestly one of the best holidays I have enjoyed. Maynard, the chef taught us so much in such a short time. The accommodation is comfortable and location superb. Excellent facilities.
Really great week of cooking. Loved how with a small group any question was answered and that I had the Chef instructors full attention. Many techniques were covered especially 'chef tricks of the trade' and plating composition. Will be going back if more courses are offered for chefs. Definitely worth the money, great location and hospitality.
From my fabulous "room with a view" to the sensational food we prepared and ate I cannot thank Freya and Maynard enough - and their son Richard, for perhaps one of the best, most welcoming holidays I have ever had. Three cheers for Walnut Grove Cookery! See you all again soon!!!
