French cooking schools are a great way to learn how to cook French cuisine and have a wonderful holiday at the same time. France is a large country with many regions and it has many cooking schools to choose from, from Brittany in the North to the Cote d'Azur in the south of France.

Many of the French cooking schools will introduce you to
traditional French foods and recipes of their own particular region as well as
the cuisine of France which can be found everywhere.
Some offer accommodation included which saves you the time
and trouble of having to find somewhere to stay. You can take a friend with you
and often husband and wives, partners and friends make this a holiday to
remember whilst enjoying the atmosphere and the thrill of learning how to make
the most wonderful French cuisine.
In some schools they help you to choose your food locally
from the French markets and this gives you a chance to brush up on your
language skills at the same time. Most of all it is fun and enjoyable with
everyone learning together.
The cooking courses can be anything from a one day course or
a week or more depending on what you want or need. It is up to you but you will
be sure to enjoy your time in France whilst you are learning.
