An intimate group of four - just the right size! Chef Prisca led us through preparation and eating! of a full Creole meal. She's very engaging and knowledgeable - makes everyone feel comfortable and was happy to answer all our questions. No worries if you're an English speaker. Prisca shares her recipes and blog at the end of the course. So much fun working in an outdoor kitchen!
We had a wonderful cooking class with Prisca Morjon. The setting on La Mauny was beautiful and Prisca is a delightful instructor. There were only 2 of us in our class and we learned a lot. She gave us a great introduction to Martinique creole cuisine. We prepared several dishes including Accras and Poulet Columbo. We had a lovely lunch after class and then a tour of the rum distillery. We definitely plan on taking another class on our next trip to Martinique. I highly recommend this tour.
This cooking class was amazing! My fiancé and I learned so much and chef Prisca could not have been more welcoming, friendly and informative. She made us feel very comfortable and answered all of our many questions and the outdoor setting was gorgeous although a little tricky to find at first. It was so great to learn how to cook food from a culture that neither of us were very familiar with. It was easily the best meal we had while on the island and we will cherish our memories and recipes from the class for years to come!
