Event Details

Join the Vegetarian Cookery School for a culinary break in the beautiful surroundings of Château Ventenac, a 19th century stone castle in the Languedoc region of Southern France. Our five day/four night residential course will give you the opportunity to learn seasonal Mediterranean cookery with Rachel Demuth, owner of the award winning Demuth’s Vegetarian Restaurant in Bath, now in its 20th year.

The vegetarian course includes four cookery sessions with a combination of hands on cookery and demonstration where we will create delicious Mediterranean meals together using the best seasonal vegetables, local oils and wines. We will visit a local market, visit local producers and have a special wine tasting with Juliet Bruce Jones, Master of Wine.

Surrounded by stunning countryside and the nearby Canal du Midi you will have plenty of time to relax, swim and unwind and, of course, sample the local specialities.

Rachel DemuthRachel Demuth is the owner of the award winning Demuth’s Vegetarian Restaurant in Bath, now in its 20th year. She has written three cookery books and writes a monthly column on seasonal ingredients for the national magazine Vegetarian Living.
