Meet your guide and group in central Uzès and make a beeline for the local market. Soak up the atmosphere of a traditional French marketplace as you browse the stalls and decide on the menu for your cooking class together with your group. With the help of your guide, a seasoned chef, learn how to select the freshest ingredients, interact with market vendors and purchase the seasonal produce needed for your chosen recipes. If you’re lucky, you might even snag some tasters, but don’t be too greedy – there’s plenty more food to come!
Laden with all the ingredients you need, travel to nearby Arpaillargues to the cooking school. Then, it’s time to get hands-on as you chop up the ingredients and master the secrets of French cuisine. Working together as a group, whip up a delicious appetizer, main course and dessert, and pick up plenty of expert tips and techniques along the way.
Sip a traditional French aperitif as you wait for your food to finish cooking, then learn how to present each dish and match it with a suitable wine. Finally, it’s time for the best bit! Sit down to enjoy your 3-course meal of home-cooked delicacies accompanied, of course, by French wine and cheeses.
