My partner and I spent an amazing week in France with Kate and Nathan. We were at a beautiful Chateau where most evenings we ate meals that were prepared and cooked alongside Nathan. Laughter and music filled the house most evenings. We had an amazing experience, made some beautiful new friends and can't wait to return to France as soon as possible. Thank you Kate and Nathan for an unforgettable trip and beautiful experience that will always be treasured.

Kate and Nathan are such wonderful hosts. We had incredible experiences in places we'd never had managed to find on our own. Magnifique!!!

Anyone who has dined at one of Nathan and Kate's establishments will know the understated quality of the experience, and to join them on a tour of France, the country that inspires and drives their passion and style was an opportunity too good to miss!

As a first time traveller, the whole experience was as friendly, smooth, and professional as I could have ever hoped. I couldn't help but notice how each day was subtly tailored to suit everyone in the group at various times and how Kate and Nathan's relaxed demeanour rubbed off on everyone else.

It's very hard to pick a highlight from the many fine establishments we visited, but I was really impressed that we didn't just go to the most obvious venues, and with Nathan and Kate's extensive knowledge and established relationships, we were able to enjoy a more "local" experience in a wide range of amazing bistros and cafes.

Everyone should have a week in a French countryside chateau at some point in their lives. Relaxing around the chateau provided a perfect balance with Nathan and Kate as the perfect hosts. Did I mention the incredible architecture of these small towns? It has to be experience to be believed.

I would do the exact same trip again (and again, and again!) Such an amazing experience in so many ways. Thank you Nathan and Kate…

My trip to France with Around Our Table was absolutely wonderful.  The tour itinerary had been thoroughly researched and organised to provide a broad range of "foodie" experiences, many of which would not have been possible as a solo traveller.  Kate and Nathan shared their passion for French cuisine and lifestyle and each day was delivered with enthusiasm, fun, and generosity.  It felt more like travelling with friends than being on a tour.

There were so many memorable experiences, such as living like a local in a small town in Burgundy with daily trips to local food markets, afternoon cooking classes, and an evening game of pétanque. A unique and thoroughly enjoyable food journey!

I'm not an organised tour person, I'm just not patient enough to play nicely with a bus full of strangers. But when I discovered Around Our Table and their small group adventures to France I knew this concept was for me. From our first meeting I knew I had done the right thing.

Ten glorious days followed in Paris and Burgundy – A fabulous mix of fun, cooking, exploring, and relaxing with a like-minded group of six lovely travelling companions. We were gently "directed" by Kate whose organisational skills are brilliant, add Nathan's cooking abilities and his truly wonderful hosting style and you have the perfect match. If you think you would love to follow in my broad, flat, stumbling footsteps contact the lovely Kate at Around Our Table. It will change your world.
