Cooking schools in Normandy & in the Loire Valley
We can organize our "Game pâté" class in a manor on the Risle river, near Pont Audemer. See our terrine & pâtés section.
On Rue Tatin is so much more than just a cooking school. It is a unique and hand-tailored opportunity for you to get inside a world of fine food and ingredients and warm, talented, and generous people. When you come to spend five days with me, you get an inside look at France with all of its quality and richness, its old-world quality, and its youthful dynamism.www.onruetatin.com

A young chef awarded recently by his first Michelin star. An old manor near a picturesque market town on the north bank of the lower Seine. Sixteen guests each day can dine or have lunch in the kitchen, in front of the chef and his brigade at work. In other words you are here to watch them cook while enjoying your meal. www.restaurant-ga.fr
Does it still exist ? In Jan 2016 her website lamaisondesophie.fr seems to have changed ! and Sophie is on facebook but does not answer the inquiries... the description was: "In a nice village near Pont-Lévèque in the backcountry of Deauville & Trouville. Countryside guest house with cooking school and several other activities especially for young children. Sophie who is a French culinary TV star, is the world's foremost specialist of what we call here "cakes". Originally, "cake" in French describes British style fruit cake but Sophie has invented dozens of smart and delicious variations to be used as fingertip dishes or desserts".*
