A small French cookery- and wine school in historic Uzes near Avignon in Languedoc Provence.. Run by Petra Carter, chef/foodwriter with 30 years experience, offering a range of cooking demonstrations, market tours and tutored wine tastings and vineyard visits – either for individuals or for small groups…

A unique small cookery- and wine school in a vaulted 16th century premises in historic Uzes.

Cooking and wine courses will cover a wide range of subjects - MEDITERRANEAN & PROVENCAL cuisine of course, but we'll also offer other themes such as Moroccan, Mexican and Indonesian cuisines. There will be courses on EFFORTLESS FOOD for laid-back SUMMER ENTERTAINING and we'll teach you how to PRESERVE bountiful summer staples into special treats to enjoy during the winter months (think tapenades, confit of duck, raspberry vinegars and flavoured oils, salted/dried duckbreasts, rillettes of goose etc). We shall have sessions on cooking imaginative (yet surprisingly simple) FISH dishes and easy food to enjoy around the KITCHEN TABLE.. We might even dip our toes into some MOLECULAR gastronomy or include a session of FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY.. Our wine tastings and vineyard visits are accompanied by a qualified wine expert.
