This is a new offering from CookDordogne who are partnering with the fantastic Danu and Michel at Perigourmet. This incorporates our fun half day cooking course with visits to local producers courtesy of the superb local hosting team at Perigourmet to extend this to a total gourmet experience for a day. This starts with being picked up from your accommodation (subject to a 20k radius of Le Chèvrefeuille) by Perigourmet in an iconic french 2CV and dropped to our cookery school by 10am. This is a unique opportunity for people of all ages to participate in a fun half day experience, preparing a two course regional lunch menu to be enjoyed at the end of the morning.
These dishes will always have a local flavour, using the regional ingredients which will change in accordance with the season, produce at its best. The half day menu can be accessed here. All participants leave with a recipe handout and nicely fed and watered ready for the next part of their day.
The Perigourmet team then pick you up from Le Chevrefeuille at 13h30 and take you on 2 visits to 2 producers out of four possibilities which are chosen in advance
- Wine with la Voie Blanche
- Walnut oil in Castelnaud
- Biscuiterie in Sarlat
- Spirit distillerie in Sarlat
These visits give you a local personal insight into the range, passion and pride of the local producers of our region and the respect and knowledge Michel and Danu have for the Perigord and its food culture.
You will be then returned to your accommodation by the team in their iconic vintage 2CVs at the end of the day.
The full day gourmet experience is bookable online by selecting our half day cooking course on the Thursday of your choice and then adding the Perigourmet tours to your booking.
