Julia Bristow, the owner of the spectacular Château Ventenac, situated on the Canal du Midi in Ventenac-en-Minervois, is offering two courses in the spring of 2009 for all you food and wine lovers out there.
A five day/four night Mediterranean Vegetarian Cookery Course which offers the opportunity to learn seasonal vegetarian cooking with Rachel Demuth, owner of the award winning Demuth's Vegetarian Restaurant in Bath, and Jo Ingleby, experienced chef and cookery tutor.
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.May 18-21
Discover the diverse and award winning wines of the Languedoc over 4 days on a Wine Tasting Holiday with your expert wine guide, Juliet Bruce Jones, one of only 287 Masters of Wine worldwide.
Juliet is a friend of mine so I've had the pleasure of being a second (and much less educated) opinion on a few wine tasting outings with her. Her knowledge of wine is extensive and her enthusiasm for the wine of the Languedoc is contagious!
Contact Julia Bristow to sign up for either course or for information about the other courses on offer at Château Ventenac.
