Sidney & Alison Bond are excellent chefs and excellent teachers. We learnt so much from them, they are a lovely couple and organise everything so well.
We got out of this course everything we expected (the second one we've been on, this time it was the Christmas 2016 one )
We can highly recommend Le Calabash

This was a trip of a lifetime. Allison, Sidney, and their daughters were so welcoming and helpful throughout the entire visit. We had amazing hands-on instruction and put together entire recipes from start to finish. The pastry course is amazing for a dessert lover or any level of baker. The accommodations were spacious and nice to go home to in the evenings. Go hungry and leave with a full belly and heart!

My girlfriend and I attended the pastry cooking course at Le Calabash over the Thanksgiving holidays and had a blast. Sydney and Allison were extremely patient and knowledgeable about the cooking process for each dessert we created. We learned how to make everything from macaroons and ice cream to more traditional French pastries like profiteroles. Another aspect of the course that I wasn't aware of until arriving was having delicious home-prepped meals for every course of the day. Sydney made some amazing duck confit and also a great branzini filet with foie gras. I am looking forward to attending another course soon hopefully to further increase my cooking knowledge and be able to impress friends and family back home. I cannot recommend this course enough.

Just returned from 2 weeks in Africa. Sid and Alison our leaders/chefs brought our small group(13)on the most amazing adventure. We spent our first 3 night in Capetown in the Stellenbosch wine region at the Zevenwacht wine estate. There and in several other locations we experienced several wine tastings and picnicked in the vineyards. Great food and wine and Capetown visit along the waterfront was terrific. Then we flew for our next 6 nights to Namibia. We traveled to 4 different lodges and experienced an up close and personal view of animals in the wild. The lodges and their amenities were first class and our guides in the game preserves were exceptional. I highly recommend taking this very personalized journey for what is truly the trip of a lifetime.
