Basic ingredients: Based in the 14th-century home of chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, the Academy offers a choice of one and two-day courses run by an international brigade of chefs. JCN himself runs a Tasting and Demonstration or an ultimate Masterclass. Courses are themed seasonally and have a maximum of 12 students. The day is a mixture of hands on, interactive and demonstration cookery in the country-style kitchen.
They say: Our aim is for students and guests of the Academy to have a five-star experience and we look forward to welcoming you here.
We say: A great day out and a really good range of courses. Even if the class is not being taught by JCN, there’s every chance the celebrity chef might drop in if he’s at home.
