Cooking Classes


We are delighted to offer private cooking lessons taught by local chef Ludovic Nicod: 

“It has been almost 20 years since my passion for cooking has taken me around France and beyond (including Corsica, Ireland, England). My journey has allowed me to taste and learn a wide variety of cuisines. In Corsica, for instance, I had the opportunity of working in a bio-vegetarian restaurant. My experiences there are still reflected in my interest in cooking vegetarian and vegan. 

In August 2018, I arrived in the Périgord Noir as a chef at L’Auberge de Meyrals, which obtained the prestigious status of "Maître Restaurateur”. I have recently started working as a private chef at home. I only work with fresh and high-quality products, preferably organic and locally produced.

I offer cooking classes at Château La Carrière to groups of up to 4 people, at all levels, in a fun and friendly atmosphere. I teach different cuisines, ranging from traditional French to contemporary vegan. Classes are taught in either French or English.”

Please make sure to book well in advance, as Ludovic is highly sought after.
