There aren't many Michelin starred restaurants in the Loire Valley, and I don't know of any that do lessons.

If you speak French you could try Gerbe d'Or in Loches, but he only does lessons in French restaurantlagerbedor.fr/cooking-workshop-art…

I'm not sure if you would consider Chartres a little out of your way, but we stayed at this hotel last week and noticed the cooking school facility linked to the hotel. We did eat in the (one star) restaurant and it was rather good.

Chateau d'Artigny may meet your requirements. It is a four star hotel, situated near to Tours. They do courses on a Saturday morning, but not very frequently. Have a look at their web page:

The courses are however in French. My wife is a passionate cook, and has attended this any other couses at local restaurants (Gerbe d'Or, Rive Gauche) but they are all in French.

You say that you do not want a cooking school, but never the less there is a local cooking school that does courses in English:

You could try www.lespeupliers-loire.com - very relaxed and informal cookery classes with a professional chef (can be in french, german or english!). They offer B&B as well, a lovely place to stay whilst touring the Loire. I did a class last week and thoroughly enjoyed it!
