The Company
Showing budding chefs the ropes with ready-mixed cooking holidays, CookinFrance sizzles up a seasoning of culinary courses from their rustic farmhouse base. Nuzzled in the Dordogne countryside, the converted stone barn boasts a split level kitchen with exposed oak roof trusses, and an outdoor swimming pool laps up the rays outside. Hands-on classes are taught by former BBC Masterchef semi-finalist Jim Fisher, who has worked with seafood supremo Rick Stein, and students get the chance to cook their own evening delicacies.

Day 1: Champagne reception and three course welcome meal in the evening 
Day 2: Introduction to kitchen safety, layout, and hygiene, then straight into cooking preparation for the evening meal 
Day 3: Visit to Sarlat Market, and caramel and sugar work class 
Day 4: Morning and afternoon cooking session for evening meal 
Day 5: Morning and afternoon cooking session for evening meal
