What people are saying...



“I LOVED our Cook and Speak sessions. Cécile’s friendly smiles and great patience with me (a Scottish woman trying to remember schoolgirl French) made for a very, very satisfying few hours. The subjects we discussed were always so interesting and relevant, and the recipes we cooked delicious, I still use most of them at home in my own kitchen!”


“Cook and Speak was great fun. I loved working with my group and preparing, cooking and enjoying all the new recipes from the course in Cécile’s own kitchen. She is a wonderful and engaging host and teacher and I absolutely loved participating in all of her very well prepared sessions in French food and culture. Thanks Cécile!”
