Led by Catherine Maxwell

As a child, Catherine spent many happy family holidays in different parts of France, visiting markets, cafes and restaurants and her love of food and interest in cooking was stimulated by these visits.

Subsequently she trained as a chef, studying French classical cuisine and, after she had qualified, working there as well. Back in the UK, she spent time in charge of the pastry kitchen at Le Gavroche, Michel Roux Jnr's Michelin-starred restaurant in London.

She likes the traditional dishes because of the history and the use of local ingredients.

"Catherine explains everything so clearly. She is calm, reassuring and extremely knowledgeable." Janice
