Cooking in Thailand

Like the word Thai which means free our open air beach side cooking school on beautiful Koh Lanta island is all palm trees, balmy sea breezes and tropical tastes! Thai food needs no introduction - combining the best of Eastern cuisines, the oriental bite of Szechwan Chinese, flavours from Malaysia and the creamy coconut sauces of Southern India- not many of us have escaped the seduction of a green curry. Here, at this creative and imaginative school, you'll learn much more. The workshops are hands-on, led by an experienced Thai cook and you'll learn by doing and tasting. The menu is mainly based on seafood and vegetables and vegetarians are very welcome. You?ll be using the freshest produce with suggestions for substitute ingredients so you can recreate that authentic flavour when you get home. Classes are fun and relaxed - sharing the pleasure of cooking with other food enthusiasts, listening to music and the sound of the sea. Bring your swimsuit, as you may want to have a quick dip between courses or just relax at the school's beach bar and watch the sun go down. Your chef will take you to the local market, a fascinating experience, which will give you a rare insight into the flavours of this gentle country.

The Heart of Burgundy

From tiny villages on quiet canals to rolling vineyards surrounding pretty chateaus, Burgundy is a region of wine and gastronomy. This area is home to world famous wines like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. It is also known for such classic French dishes as escargots, coq au vin, beouf bourguignon, and jambon persille. Epiculinary offers two unique trips to the heart of BurgundyThe choice is yours-a five- day walking and cooking tour featuring healthful hikes, or a relaxing four-day getaway exploring the area by private car. Either way, you'll travel through vineyards to little wine hamlets; you'll discover abbeys and medieval villages; and you'll learn to cook traditional French dishes in the kitchen of a Burgundian manor house.
