Our hands-on French cooking lesson – what's in a day :
A welcome coffe with homemade cakes giving participants and opportunity to get to know one another and introduction to the menu by chef Jean-Marc. Then shop local, seasonal and mainly organic foods either at the market on Saturday and Sunday or at a co-op shop "Naturellement Paysan" the other days, where local producers sells their products all year long.
Then you will be ready to cook a 3 courses menu + amuse-bouches under the instructions of chef Jean-Marc and you will share your preparations around the table with Jean-Marc and his wife Alice, enjoying our scenic Provencal environnement overlooking the Luberon mountains in the heart of Provence. An "apéritif" will be served before the Lunch.
Chef Jean-Marc has spent his professional life in the culinary sector so he can adapt the menu if needed. Just let us know your allergies or dislikes when you book your class. It is important to know beforehand, because we are not a restaurant and we work mainly with fresh food.
