By joining this experience, you will be immersed in an authentic Provencal atmosphere. A real foodie experience. We will select the appropriate recipes and ingredients to prepare and taste traditional local dishes, and you will enjoy a unique day at the Aix en Provence local food market and in Aix countryside.
The tour starts with the visit at the old town food market, where you will learn a bit of history and listen to a few stories about the town and the Provence area. You will meet some of the local food producers, and we will select all the best ingredients according to the season and the selected menu. On the way to our cooking class, we will stop by an amazing wine Chateau to pair the right wine with the meal and visit the local goat cheese farm.
After a short 10-minutes drive and crossing the 17th century bridge named “Pont des 3 Sautets” painted by Cezanne, we will arrive at the 12-acre property where the cooking class will take place. After a small tour of the house and of the organic vegetable garden, we will start the cooking session. Everyone will actively participate to a hand on class for the preparation of our various recipes. You will learn some cooking skills and knowledge from a skilled French family home cook. After approximately 2 hours of cooking, you will be ready to share your culinary works of art in the most “convivial” local way. In the course of the day you will also certainly have time to take a walk in a wild provencal “Garrigue” filled with aromatic herbs.
Later in the afternoon, back to Aix en Provence through the scenic Montaiguet Forest.
