Half-Day Cooking Experience

Join us for a half-day of cooking in the heart of the Poitou region of France. Most Wednesdays in 2012 Circle of Misse heads an hour south to La Pomme d’Or in the charming village of La Chapelle Moulière (86210) for a half-day of cooking (10am – 2pm).

The course is ideal for individuals, groups of friends, couples and families. Children accompanied by an adult are always welcome. We include special activities such as pasta and dessert making to keep our younger participants entertained and active.

Participants sample local food and wines while helping to prepare a three-course lunch in La Pomme d'Or's outdoor kitchen overlooking the pool.

It is a great way to learn more about the food and wine of the region. We’ll send you away with copies of all the recipes so you can recreate your French holiday meal back at home.

We ask you about the things you like and don’t like to eat and fashion the menu accordingly. Dishes we cook together may include: home-made pasta with orange & lemon or blue cheese and sage, or radish leaf pesto, fish with beurre blanc sauce, duck breast with lentils, pork with prunes and a tart featuring seasonal ingredients.

C-of-M & La Pomme d'Or

We’re very excited about this partnership because it allows us to feature the goats cheeses, seafood and other specialities of Poitou-Charentes with a whole new group of guests holidaying further south.


La Pomme d’Or is located in a beautiful forest within 20 minutes of Poitiers and Futuroscope, and within an hour of Angouleme, Limoges, Chateauroux and Cognac. It is also an hour from Tours which means it’s also convenient for our Loire Valley guests who’d like to do a half-day course.
