We 'll meet in Marseille, where we will visit the local Marché des Capucins. Fresh food stalls, fruit and vegetables, spices, market with Arab and African influences. We'll also visit a hidden gem, an old fashioned boutique selling all kinds of specialized cookware and last but not least we'll visit a herb pharmacy and spice shop. Afterwards we'll travel to Roquevaire, about 30 minutes drive. We'll welcome you to our home, where, while sitting in the sun with a tea or coffee, we’ll talk you through the menu of the day and the ingredients. We'll use local, fresh, seasonal and high quality products where possible. We’ll share our tips and tricks with you. Weather permitting, we'll cook and eat outside, using our outdoor kitchen. The class, without the visit, is 3 hours, hands on, talking & cooking & table setting & eating. We'll make the lunch together, example of a lunch could be : - home made flat breads with spiced yogurt - vegetarian bhajias or chaat - stuffed spiced aubergines and/or peppers - a fish, meat or chicken curry or massala - chocolate filo pastries with a dip - tea As we cook with the seasons the dishes will vary depending on available produce.
I am Catalan, have travelled the world and lived in many countries. I am a 61 year old mother of 4 and grandmother of 4. I started cooking at home for my family at the age of 12, making the Sunday lunch at first and later the weekly evening meals. At the age of 26 we travelled to Sri Lanka, where we visited a spice farm. Needless to say that we brought home many spices. Even years later, when opening this particular spice box, the smells would transport me back to Sri Lanka and its wonderful cuisine. Always amazed what the addition of one spice or spices can do to a dish! Over the years I have cooked meals for many guests, introducing them to new and exciting dishes from cuisines from all over the world.. We enjoy cooking so much that we took a year out to attend a culinary and gastronomic course in a renowned Belgian school.
