Gourmet Logique: A culinary retreat in Agen, France. Summer Half price special!!

Pay half price for a 3 or 5 day French summer countryside culinary adventure!

Our partnership cookery school in France is called Gourmet Logique, and we are delighted to announce that we are finally up and running! The new house is just stunning, and the location couldn’t be better, right in the centre of the most famous produce France has to offer. If you are looking for a country stay in serious comfort with lots to do, surrounded by natural beauty, Le Tournié has it all!


We will welcome you to Le Tournie over a buffet style lunch, representative of the delicious, world -renowned local foods and regional wines you will be discovering on your course. We will get to know each other, chat about your expectations and talk you through the day to day activities we have planned for you. Your French countryside food journey has begun! It is our aim that you will leave satiated and confident that you can replicate what you have learned from us back home. Wherever possible, you will be supplied with a list of substitute ingredients for your home country and of course, you will leave with a full set of recipes and a bespoke apron! Best of all, you will truly understand the techniques behind some great dishes, and be able to wow the folks back home.

Our food journey will take you to local markets to learn how to source the best, peak- of -season produce, and to meet purveyors and producers in the region. Then it will be back to the kitchen at Le Tournie, to learn to make both classic and modern dishes for our lunch and dinner. Included will also be trips to a scenic bastide village and to a specially chosen restaurant. There will be free time in the programme, and we will have personally -approved suggestions of nearby attractions for you to visit or activities you may like to take part in.

Your cooking course at Le Tournie will be run by qualified and experienced Cordon Bleu chefs, led by owner Jenny Howard from Chez Gourmet Specialist Short Course Cooking School in Cape Town, South Africa. We are passionate about food and wine, and with sharing our knowledge, tips and techniques with you.

You don’t necessarily need to be a food fundi or be a great cook or oenophile to get the most out of your stay with us: we cater to all levels! We can also customise your experience if you let us know what you would particularly like to learn in advance.

Le Tournié enjoys spectacular panoramic views across the surrounding countryside and is the perfect place for relaxing in peace and tranquillity. There is, however, plenty to discover in the neighbouring areas such as Bastides and other medieval towns, museums and caves. If you are looking for something more energetic then there are plenty of opportunities to undertake activities such as golf, archery, rock climbing, horse riding, hiking and bike trailing, quad biking and dune buggies, paintball, go-karts and swimming and other water activities.

Le Tournie is located approximately 20 km (12.5 miles) from Agen (which has TGV service) and is approximately 135 km (85 miles) from Toulouse.
