The Gourmet Experience

Pip Priestly

The Dordogne is home to some of the best produce in the world and is a “go-to” destination for food and wine lovers. We would like to share this with you, all in the luxury of your own private, six-bedroom, 5-star villa.

We are therefore delighted to announce that we have joined forces with award-winning Chef, Pip Priestly, to bring to you a tailor-made selection of gourmet experiences during 2021.

Pip has won numerous awards and has cooked for celebrities and royalty across the world for over 35 years. He has been featured in countless magazines, including Tatler and Scottish Field.

Pip’s ethos is to use fresh and seasonal produce, sourced ethically and farmed sympathetically, from artisan dairy, meat, game and fish suppliers.

Every meal is a memorable experience – Pip has an exceptional knowledge of food and how to produce a truly fabulous dining event.

We have been lucky enough to have been catered for by Pip in his own home in France and we can guarantee that his food is glorious. He is truly passionate about his craft and always brings more than a soupcon of personality to your dining experience.

We can tailor-make an event to suit your tastes and requirements and we are happy to discuss your culinary requests.

Here is a flavour of what’s on offer

Skill Improvements

Just tell us what you would like to master and Pip will work with you, so that you return home with your new skills ready for your own kitchen.

The Perigord Experience

These culinary events will run from mid-April through to the end of September.

Price is on request and will depend on the length of your stay and the menu selection.
