ARRIVAL – Sunday evening
DEPARTURE – Friday morning

This cooking class is a great opportunity to learn all about Provencal and Mediterranean gastronomy. It includes a trip to the local market to purchase fresh, seasonal produce, hands-on lessons, a visit to a local olive oil mill and introduction to wine tasting… Topped with a fun, friendly and casual atmosphere.

4-day cookery course, every day from 9AM. – 3PM. Participants will prepare a new recipe every day with a star-rated chef.

Day 1 – Sunday Evening

Welcome dinner (excluding drinks) at the Hostellerie’s gastronomic restaurant, where the chef will delight your palate with his delicious, heartfelt Provencal cuisine.

Day 2 – Monday

First of all you will head to the garden, where you will discover and gather various herbs, medicinal plants, fruits and vegetables. Then it’s back to the kitchen to prepare the dish of the day – today’s choice is a Provencal stew with choice cuts of meat cooked up with herbs and vegetables. The table is ready – now all you have to do is enjoy your culinary creation out on the terrace or in the ancient dining room in true Provencal style.

Day 3 – Tuesday

This morning you’ll be up bright and early for a trip to the colourful fish market in Sanary- sur-Mer, where you will meet the local fruit and vegetable producers, fishermen and cheese makers. You will see the day’s catch come into the port and head back armed with some fabulous fresh fish for the day’s class.

Day 4 – Wednesday

Another great day! This time the spotlight is on Provence’s tasty, juicy and sun- packed Provencal vegetables.

Day 5 – Thursday

Your last day is dedicated to those with a sweet tooth. Provence’s much- appreciated dessert tarts and chocolate “moelleux” are so delicious you’re sure to want seconds.
