Why men are great cookery students

I don’t know why, when we think about cookery courses, it’s often a woman that comes to mind.

I can honestly say that of the numerous men I’ve been so happy to have in our culinary holidays, they’re some of the best cooks!

They tend to have a little different attitude in the kitchen, more inquisitive and adventurous (they dare to challenge my traditional methods!) and we enjoy trying different ways of doing things, sometimes with great results.
This for me, is what makes cooking so fun and what it is all about.
So once you’ve got some sound cooking basics, creativity and invention are
the key to having a good time in the kitchen.
