I offer non-residential COOKING COURSES and residential COOKING HOLIDAYS at my home in Poitou Charente, South West France. Immerse yourself in the French lifestyle by joining me to discover, cook and taste great dishes from around the world made with truly wonderful, locally sourced ingredients fresh from the market. Explore and discover France’s second sunniest region as you drive through the vineyards surrounding Cognac or take a trip to one of the least developed beaches in Europe where the seafood is superb.
Working with my husband, Internationally acclaimed food photographer Ian Wallace, we offer FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY AND FOOD STYLING workshops and courses for people interested in shooting, cooking or styling food. The WORKSHOPS are a group class where we can teach up to 10 people at a time giving them a broad understanding and skill to shoot food better. Our WORKSHOPS are more bespoke and are limited to 2 people so we can spend the time required to hone your skills ready for producing publication ready images.
I offer cooking holidays and courses in South West France. As a successful author of more than 30 cook books, a food editor several times over and food and prop stylist I now live and work in France with my husband food and lifestyle photographer IAN WALLACE and our 2 dogs. Together we have worked for book publishers and magazine publications around the world including Gourmet Traveller, Food & Travel Magazine, Delicious publications in the UK, Australia and Holland, Vogue Entertaining and Grazia UK to name just a few. We are now opening our home to you so we can share our skills and help you pursue a love of food and food photography.
