My daughter loves to cook as much as I do, so we thought it would be fun to take a class together on our recent visit to Provence. We were excited to find Jean-Marc not far from where we were staying.... more »
We were in France with another couple and decided to try a cooking class. This class in the Provence region was one of the highlights of our trip. We are from the US and the English that the class was taught in was excellent. Jean Marc and his wife Alice, were wonderful hosts. We visited a co-op we’re we picked up organic ingredients for our meal. Here he explained why he choice the the organic ingredients, talked about the local suppliers and introduced us to some of them that were working. We then went back to his house where we met another couple and worked all afternoon in a enjoyable, professional kitchen. Jean Marc and Alice, made the whole experience delightful. After preparing the meal we all ate outside in a beautiful country setting covered with a hanging grapevine trellis enjoying wine, new friends and a delicious meal
This Provencial cooking class was easily the best class we've taken anywhere in the world. The food we used was all top quality and the instruction from Jean-Marc was phenomenal. It's obvious he's been teaching for 30 years and loves what he does. Between he and his wife Alice the experience was absolutely top notch. We would not hesitate to recommend this class to anyone. You will not be disappointed. Their hospitality was similar to a 5 star hotel.
