Our French cooking school is located near Avignon in the heart of French Provence.
Join us in our specially designed teaching kitchen in one of the best parts of French Provence : the Regional Park of Luberon. The Luberon is home to some of France’s most beautiful and colourful villages: Gordes, Roussillon, Ménerbes, and Bonnieux to name just a few. Just ten miles away find Isle-sur-la Sorgue, worlwide known for antiques.
Easy access by TGV bullet train, our school is close to the Avignon TGV station as well as being close to the Paris/Nice highway.
The view from the kitchen is wonderful as we are just at the bottom of the Luberon hill, the garden is garnished with olive trees, flowering trees and lavender. The next growing season will see the blooming of our own garden with organic vegetables and herbs.
We will be delighted to welcome you to our culinary home, full of charm and warmth where you will experience for yourself the pleasure of cooking a menu with the chef then joining him and his wife Alice for a meal on the terrace surrounded by the garden. Aperitif is served before sharing the meal.
The kitchen is designed to teach hands-on French cooking classes where you can practice with the chef near by, benefit from his advices and expertise and learn the skills you need to take all the pleasure to your own table.
The products are local and organic wherever possible. The chef understands that cooking begins with selecting the best possible products so join him in the market as you learn how to choose the highest quality products and how to combine different products to bring out the best that each one has to offer. The secret to success in the kitchen includes bringing passion and love to cooking… so join us as we share with you our love for French Cuisine.
