Cooking Classes and Food Tours in Provence

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. Want to learn about the markets and foods of Provence without the cooking part? We also offer market and food tours.

We offer a full-day cooking class on Wednesdays, and upon request for groups of 4 or more, that includes a market tour and a lavish three-course meal with wine. Your meal will include typical apero-style snacks from the market. We offer private one-day pastry workshops and a comprehensive pastry-making week in Provence.  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.
