About
Le Pistou is a small, private cooking school in the heart of historic UZES, one of the prettiest towns in the South of France.. We offer mostly one-day classes on traditional, sun-drenched PROVENCAL food and Classic French cuisine. But we also do a wide arrange of other inspiring courses - a FISH class for those who are afraid to cook with fish, or a DESSERTS class for lovers of all things sweet. But we also specialise in authentic INDIAN, LEBANESE and other exotic cuisines...

Petra makes you feel you are a real French chef
Aug 2021
Petra is a born teacher whose secret is that she makes one feel accomplished. Her hands-on style and encouragement, laced with a good portion of humor, put my family immediately at ease as she guided and chided us through the preparation of a medley of suburb appetizers fit for any festive table. A fun learning experience for the novice and the accomplished cook.

WONDERFUL COOKING CLASS
Jul 2021
I flambeed shrimp for the first time in my life like a TV chef.!! This is my second class and it was fantastic. The recipes are well timed out and the champagne interlude was great. Petra also explains the culinary features of the surrounding area, the vineyards, outdoor markets, pottery towns and upcoming festivals. The backgrounds of the ingredients were full explained including what to look for in spices, tomatoes, zucchini flowers, olive oils and butters. Of course the feast at the end of the day was a great! I definitely am coming back. Petra is Uzes greatest ambassador!!!

Fantastic - this will revive your love of cooking!
Jul 2021 • Solo
I thoroughly enjoyed my two Little Dishes of Provence cooking courses (both with different recipes) in July and August 2021.

Petra is so warm, welcoming and relaxed. On both the courses there were about 8 people - I felt I arrived as a student and parted with new friends!
I just loved all the tips-tastes and tactics that I learnt, for example de-veining prawns, whisking up a simple yet delicious pud, and don’t get me going on the tomatoes, figs, sweet onions and courgettes…
At the end of the session we all sit down to enjoy everything we have watched being made and helped make that day - and tuck in to a delicious lunch. It’s great fun.

Thank you Petra for making it all look so easy and in turn re-invigorating my love of cooking. Especially here in la belle france. I am looking forward to coming to some of your Indian and Indonesian cooking courses when I return in the autumn.

I'm so happy I've managed to regenerate your love of cooking! We all enjoyed your company - others felt the same: you meet as strangers and you leave with friends. Thank you for coming to two consecutive classes and I sooo look forward to seeing you in the autumn. A bientot! xxx

The Indian cooking course was a wonderful experience.
Petra Carter is a gifted teacher who creates a fantastic atmosphere. The food was sublime and I have already started to put into practice all that was learnt.
I highly recommend the Pistou Cookery School School

Great course on Indian food
Jun 2021
I just did a cooking course on Vegetarian Indian food and it was fantastic. The food was delicious and Petra was very knowledgeable about the various spices and how to handle them. I highly recomend this course.

Inspiring Indian Cooking
Jun 2021
Le Pistou Cookery School opened again with delicious courses in Indian Cuisine. The easy to follow recipe sheets introduced us to making our own Ghee, Dal and Naan bread, right through to the very exciting mixing and grinding of a variety of Masala spices and herbs to make the principle sauces of Indian recipes. Petra Carter is a wonderful cook and an excellent teacher. The atmosphere is friendly, chatty and inspiring. It culminates in a delicious lunch, tasting the menu we produced in the morning and Petra becomes the most jovial host.

A memorable culinary experience!
Jun 2021
Petra Carter lights up the room with her smile and her enthusiasm is addictive!
A small group of us spent an inspiring few hours learning the delights of Indian cooking from grinding spices, cooking naan breads, chopping vegetables and all the while the wonderful smells filled the beautiful and very well designed and equipped Le Pistou kitchen. Culminating in a delicious lunch cooked, and then eaten by us all. A memorable and generous experience that I would highly recommend, I loved it.
