Cuisine de Provence cooking class
One morning during our week in Provence, we headed to Vaison-la-Romaine to meet Barbara of Cuisine de Provence for our cooking class at her home.
There were 2 other American ladies in the class with us - it was a great size. We all were very hands on with the preparation of the different dishes. We arrived, were handed our aprons and put straight to work!
Barbara's home was lovely and incredibly inviting. The day was beautiful and she kept the door to the kitchen open the whole time - it was perfect.
Once the work was finished, the 5 of us sat on her outdoor patio for lunch.
I can't wait to recreate the dishes at home...I think the cake will be first on my list! I'll certainly share when I make it!
It was just such a great day, and truly one of my favorite things we did. (and I'm not just saying that because she reads my blog!) Barbara was fantastic, and it was so nice to be in her home and learn the local side of Provincial and French life and cuisine.
(Look at that fantastic piece behind us with all of the lovely dishes!)
