Husband-and-wife team Jean-Pierre and Denise Moullé of Two Bordelais (from $4,000) hold a weeklong course on Bordeaux-style cooking in the kitchens of the 13th-century Château La Louvière and their own rustic farmhouse. A former head chef at Alice Waters’s Chez Panisse, Jean-Pierre is an expert at preparing ingredients such as agneau de prés sales (lamb raised in salt meadows), and Denise belongs to a wine-producing family from St.-Émilion.
