French cooking

Hiking while speaking French, at Roanne

If you hear someone say, “beef bourguignon, ratatouille, macarons, chocolate mousse, crème brûlée”, then there is a strong likelihood that you exclaimed “ah!” and, without doubt, you started to salivate!

French cuisine remains famous for its delicious traditional dishes, but equally for its capacity for innovation. Proof of that fact comes from the international event Goût de France (Taste of France) which took place last March, which assembled more than 1000 chefs from 5 continents to celebrate French gastronomy.

But how do you cook really well? What are the tips for buying good meat? How do you prepare fish? How do you make a good vinaigrette to accompany a fresh green salad? How do you successfully make a beurre blanc sauce to seduce the gourmet tastes of your dining companions? How do you make a beautiful plate presentation? Because if your dishes are well-presented, you have already won the hearts of your dinner guests.

If you ask yourself all these questions, then we have the perfect response for you, right here, in our cooking school in France.

In Riorges, not far from Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France, you will find the Ecole des Trois Ponts, which offers YOU the opportunity to take french and cooking courses in the company of a real French chef! A chef who has a long culinary history behind him (, a chef who will stand at your side throughout your stay, a Chef who will patiently respond to your questions, a Chef who will explain, advise, demonstrate, adjust. Thanks to our well-chosen recipes (the difficulty level progresses throughout the week), you will work at preparing starters, as well as meats, fish, vegetables, desserts and, of course, the sauces that accompany them. The cooking classes last about two hours in a relaxed, but committed, environment (the Chef has a good sense of humor!), and where the concepts of pleasure, of sharing and eating well are essential.
