If you want a Provencal experience, you must book this class! I can't say enough about our day with Tessa (who speaks fluent English) and her family - they were all charming and very hospitable. Two girlfriends and I met Tessa in the morning in Aix. She gave a walking tour of the city on our way to the markets, which was a very cool and educational experience. We arrived at her home, which was just lovely, and had a beautiful salad, cheese and bread in her summer kitchen outside. After naps by the pool we cooked all afternoon, making a delicious dinner of sun-dried tomato caviar, Provencal tomatoes, stuffed veggies, mushrooms, salad with goat cheese and bacon, and lavender crème brulee. Tessa even arranged for personal touches like birthday candles and champagne for our celebration. She is truly a gem.
