A Recent Review of this tour

Yves was fabulous, he and Grandma ( embarrassed I can not remember her name) Yves took us to the market first, gave us several choices for each course and explained how each would be made. We then went to their kitchen, really neat place. We started with gazpacho, then a salted cod salad, rabbit with unbelievable mushrooms , tomato bread and we finished it off with melon with lime and mint. Grandma dotted on our 15 yr old son. My family and I chose the dishes. Book this tour it is great
