Glancing at the last couple of reviews, I'm pretty sure my husband and I were in the same class as the previous reviewer (hi there, 1CAtravel!) who has summarised it so well that there's not much for me to add. Rosa is a delight and her communication ahead of time as well as on the day was all spot on.... More

We got super lucky and had great fellow participants so we really enjoyed the time we spent touring the market, learning about some of the specialties of the... More

Rosa gave us some great cooking tips, and importantly showed us how to cook a good Socca - comfort food in this part of the world. À wonderful way to wrap up our... More

A fabulous day starting at the market where Rosa introduced everyone to some of the local produce, then a well-planned and fascinating class with lots of hands-on cooking Provencal dishes. A sheer delight and delicious too!

We had local dishes and learned about the ingredients as well as the cooking techniques. Rosa was so nice - it made for a great day to just appreciate... More

She then takes the group through the market discussing the eating habits and influences of the nicoise people. She also will... More
