Foie gras workshops

stage-foie-gras-gascogneDiscover the secrets of cooking duck foie gras in Eliane Bajon's workshop.
Workshops held for a minimum of two people to a maximum group of 10.
The workshop is held over two days.
You will learn all about duck, the different ways of preparing and cooking it, and by the end of the workshop, you will be able to prepare the meat like an expert.
As a professional, Eliane Bajon will select the duck livers which you will cut under her guidance.
She will then show you how to prepare your foie gras and season your confits.
