Course Info for 2013

Summer Course Information for 2012

Once again we present a new catalogue with many new offerings. You will find several well-known courses, but also many new ones. Most of our courses are available for English speakers. We are able to offer weekend courses in the autumn for those unable to attend summer courses. We also offer shorter courses during the summer. As always we offer a number of food courses including traditional cooking and baking courses.

I hope you will find a course that suits you! Do you know anyone who would like to receive our catalogue? If so, please give us his or her name and address and we will be happy to send one!

Best regards

Ann Mari Jore
