Barbara Schuerenberg says, “I always joke that I learned to cook out of self-defence as our mother was a terrible cook.” Clearly, she was successful in that pursuit as she ran a cooking school called Cuisine de Provence (closed in 2020) in Vaison la Romaine. Look for "Tastes of Provence" from Barbara's kitchen in our recipes section.
