This was the highlight of my three week trip to France. Jean-Marc and Alice were gracious hosts. I thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class - the final result was delicious. And, I got to meet some other lovely participants. By the end of the class, not only did I make a delicious French meal, I also felt like I made new friends. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning French cooking, experiencing Provence, or meeting fellow travelers. It was great.

I had the wonderful experience of attending Jean Marc’s cooking school with a family from New York. The food we make was absolutely delicious and it was so lovely to dine out in the beautiful garden with Jean Marc and his sweet wife. I highly recommend this cooking school, you will truly get a taste of Provence, it’s food, and it’s beauty ! Thank you to Jean Marc and your beautiful, welcoming wife !!

I have wanted to learn about the cuisine of Provence for a long time. Attending the cooking class with Jean-Marc was way beyond what I expected. The trip to the co op set the foundation for quality and his instruction was the peak of success. The size of the class was ideal, and our classmates worked together as a team. What a great event!

This is an incredible experience while in the southern Rhone/Provence region. Jean Marc and his wife Alice create a personalized experience into southern French cuisine and wine. Jean Marc personally takes you to the local market co-op to shop for fresh ingredients. He shares the recipe with you as you cook so that you can make your own notes. He is a kind and approachable teacher throughout the class. Alice also prepared snacks and drinks throughout the experience. They then sat with us and ate the delicious meal we had all prepared on their gorgeous porch surrounded by their floral, beautiful garden. Alice even provided us directions to nearby lavender fields to visit. We would highly recommend to all those visiting this region!

When asked about our trip to France my two friends and I all say that our day at the Atelier de Cuisine Gastronomique was the most wonderful of all the terrific experiences we had. Jean Marc and his wife, Alice, are welcoming and knowledgeable. They greeted us when we arrived, showed us around, and told us about plans for our day. My friends and I piled into Jean Marc's car and visited the local farmer's co-op to buy ingredients for our cooking as well as foods we would bring home for gifts. Back at their house we worked with Jean Marc in his professional kitchen to create the items on the wonderful menu he prepared for us. We learned, we chatted, and we laughed. After we completed the cooking, we enjoyed the food and more conversation, sitting on their home's beautiful patio looking out at their garden and the gorgeous countryside. In response to our request, we were given a tour of their gardens and the animals they raise. If you enjoy cooking and meeting interesting people do not miss this outstanding opportunity.

What a wonderful experience! Started the morning meeting Jean and his wife Alice with a nice espresso and delicious shortbread cookies. We then visited the local farmers market to shop for our meal. We prepared cold zucchini soup with thyme and ricotta cheese, ahi tuna with diced tomatoes and faba beans as appetizers followed by Stuffed chicken breast with goat cheese and arugula topped with a cherry sauce, as main course and potato nest with oregano, carrots and baby zucchini as side. To complete this feast a delicious peach tart with almond cream flavored crust topped with lavender and a scoop of cantaloupe melon sorbet for dessert . The kids had a wonderful time helping prepare these dishes and the adults learned some tricks of the trade from a wonderful chef. Overall a great time with a very friendly couple! Highly recommend this experience when visiting the Provence region.

A day with Jean Marc is an immersion into fun, food, and education. From the shopping to the food prep and the orchestration of the whole meal, it is all steeped in education about techniques, skills and presentation. Don’t expect to come and watch like you might at another cooking class. Jean Marc and Alice meet you with an apron and a sheaf of instructions, and, voila, you’re at work in the kitchen under his eagle eyes. Bring like- minded friends and you will have an unforgettable day!

I had very high expectations for this French Cuisine Cooking Class in Lyon France and the experience blew my expectations away! This was an experience of a life time and one I will never forget. I can't wait to go back with friends & family. Chef Jean Marc & his wife Alice are very special people. You feel like you're cooking & dining with old friends. I grew up in a foodie household. My parents worked in hospitality and had their own catering company. I know great culinary technique and food when I see it. This class was great for beginners & those who know their way around a kitchen. The trip to the market with Jean Marc was so interesting and you could tell he was very well respected by the vendors there. I learned alot about choosing various foods, how various herbs and produce could be used to compliment a meal. The private cooking school built on the back of their home overlooking their garden where the cooking class takes place is picturesque and well equipped. I can honestly tell you that the lamb we prepared in class that day was far better than the lamb I had two nights later at a very fine French restaurant. I felt like a VIP and all of us in the class got personalized attention and had a wonderful time. I got to ask alot of additional questions to learn about even more than what we learned in the class including a French oil-based dressing I'd been trying to master on my own for years and described it to Jean Marc and he was able to tell me the recipe! This experience is well worth the money. I'll be going back only this time I want to book multiple days!!
