Our day will begin at 9:30AM meeting at the Aix en Provence Tourist Office. On the way to the old town food market, I will give you a bit of history and tell you a few stories about our 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. As I will be driving you to my home, we will stop by my favorite wine merchant to pair our wine with our meal and we will visit the local goat cheese maker in her ranch. After a short 10-minutes drive and crossing the 17th century bridge named “Pont des 3 Sautets” painted by Cezanne, we will arrive at my 12-acre property. Once I have shown you around the house and my organic vegetable garden, we will start the cooking session, during which we will all actively participate in the preparation of our various recipes. I will share the cooking skills and knowledge I have developed over the years as a French family home cook. After approximately 2 hours of cooking, we will be ready to share our culinary works of art in the most “convivial” local way. In the course of the day we will also certainly have time to take a walk in our wild provencal “Garrigue” filled with aromatic herbs. Later in the afternoon, I will transport you back to Aix en Provence through the scenic Montaiguet Forest.
