Meet in the kitchen of our 300 year-old stone farmhouse, tie on your handmade apron (our gift to you) and head into the garden to collect the ingredients for your cooking class with a stop at the chicken coop to pick up fresh eggs! These are hands-on, roll up your sleeves, dive-right on in classes. We cater to our guests at every cooking level from the novice to the professional. All the recipes you will learn are local & seasonal inspired by local traditions - most dishes only have 3 or 4 ingredients - extra virgin olive oil, a bit of salt (maybe lemon or vinegar), fresh herbs & veggies. Return with actual recipes & techniques that you can recreate at home!
