Chef Kathy offers food & market tours and market-based cooking classes in the center of Aix-en-Provence. Classes are entertaining and educational and you will learn to create typical seasonal dishes of the region. Classes are designed so any level of cooking enthusiast can learn how to easily recreate these dishes when you return from your vacation. A perfect souvenir from your vacation, you’ll be able to keep the memories of Provence with you always whenever you create a Provencal dish with ingredients fresh from the day’s market. Want to learn about the markets and foods of Provence without the cooking part? We also offer market and food tours.
We offer two types of cooking classes: The first is a full-day class on Wednesdays that includes a market tour and a lavish three-course meal with wine. The second is a half-day quiche and French pastry class on Mondays where you’ll make a seasonal quiche and a classic French pastry. Along with the quiche and dessert that you made, your meal will include typical apero-style snacks from the market and a Provencal wine. For all classes, we use fresh, seasonal and local ingredients from the South of France and shopped that day at the market in Aix-en-Provence. All classes are in English.
We offer two types of market & food tours: Three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, during big market days in Aix-en-Provence, we offer a 3-hour Aix Market Day Tour. On Fridays, we offer a half-day Eating Provence food and market tour that ends with a seated wine and apero tasting around our dining table.
