With the students returning to St Louis Missouri USA, Alison and I are once again in Awe at how small our culinary world has become. Whats even more pleasing is the fact that it has become easy for all cooks, professional and amateur to share the knowledge and love of cooking via the modern communication available to us all?
Here is a few words left behind by our students from L’Ecole Culinare St Louis
- Experiencing France makes me realize how little I know and how much I still have to learn in the culinary world, but it excites me and will inspire me even more to become a good chef. Thank you Alison and Sidney, I will never forget you.
- This place is amazing. The passion that everyone has about what they cook and make is awesome. Loved the winery, goats cheese farm and lifestyle, I want to come back with my family.
- Truly a great experience. France is an amazing place for food lovers to come and enjoy all the country has to offer.
Wish we had more time to explore the beauties of France, but this has been an unforgettable experience.
- France is a beautiful country, the food, wine and whole experience is wonderful. The Bonds have shown us the passion we need to become good chefs.
- France is a wonderful country and the food is some of the best I have ever tasted.
- Enjoyed the Croque Madame, favourite brunch item to date. The Goats cheese is simply the best.
- The food is the freshest I have ever tasted in my life, and I have been converted to goat’s cheese and good wine.
- France is a beautiful country, Tours and the Chateaux are wonderful, the passion for food infectious, Alison and Sidney are ambassadors of good food.
- Chef Sid and Ali are amazing, I love them like family, they are the best ever, very passionate about food
- Really had a great time, want to come back for more.
- Being able to come here and experience inner life, as well as the joy of the French people has been truly humbling. I have been blessed to experience true passion in France.
- I have found myself missing a place I have never been to as if I was expected to be here years ago. This was a lovely experience and I am honoured to have shared it with Alison and Sidney, I will be back.
