What better place to be inspired to cook than in the Languedoc? A place where ancient traditions are as intimately linked to land as to the sea.. And where ingredients simply burst with flavour, colour and sunshine.
Right in the centre of one of Provence’s most picturesque and ancient market towns, LE PISTOU Cookery School offers a range of practical and achievable, seasonal cookery courses…
Cooking sessions are HANDS-ON and they take about 3 hours. After this we all sit down to enjoy a leisurely LUNCH to sample the fruits of our labour.
Our menus always follow the SEASONS and recipes have been carefully chosen not only to produce delicious dishes, but also to teach valuable (knife) SKILLS, prepping TECHNIQUES and different cooking METHODS.
It may be possible to include a MARKET TOUR with some courses – please check with us. It is also possible to incorporate a TUTORED WINE TASTING (we work in collaboration with Uzes Wine School – providing a unique opportunity to learn about both FOOD and WINE and how one relates to the other.
Occasionally we will offer a 2-day course on “INTUITIVE COOKING” (to find out more about this click on Cooking with Flavours). We may even dabble in a little in MOLECULAR CUISINE for some occasional fun!
Our classes are flexible, easy-going and fun. Fees include hands-on cooking sessions, lunch with wine, and you will take home all information, checklists, recipes and tasting notes you need to practice your new skills.
We also cater for private courses – ideal for small groups, culinary holidays and gourmet culinary vacations. And gift vouchers are also available.
