Delicious Classes at Le Pistou Cookery School in Uzès
Cooking Classes in Uzès
I’ve been to about six local cooking classes offered by cooking schools in the Luberon, Alpilles and the Languedoc. I have to say, Le Pistou Cooking School, owned by Petra, is one of my favourites.
Petra’s kitchen is located down a little road in the centre of the medieval streets of Uzès, which is in Occitanie, just west of Provence. Uzès is a great stop if you’re visiting the amazing Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct or pottery town of Saint Quentin la Poterie. As the cooking classes are held in the mornings, you can visit these places after lunch… that’s if you aren’t too in need of a sieste after all that delicious food and wine.

Le Pistou Cookery School
Petra Carter, the dynamic founder of le Pistou Cookery School, is a lady with an Irish lilt and a sparkle in her eyes. Her move to the historical town of Uzès was far from a straight path to the South of France. Le Pistou Cookery School is centrally located in Uzès, right next to the tourist office and steps away from the main boulevard. The large, open kitchen is well-suited for cooking demonstrations and for class participants to join the action. Cooking with Provencal flavours at Le Pistou Cookery School in Uzès.
