Mastering French Cuisine and Language: Cooking Classes in the Charming Alpilles

We are thrilled to introduce our new and exciting service – Cooking and Conversation classes in my village of Fontvieille in the Alpilles.

Language Cooking Classes Alpilles

French Language Cooking Classes:

In collaboration with Catherine, a certified French teacher with over 25 years of experience, our two-hour class provides a unique blend of culinary techniques and language acquisition. It’s an immersive experience where you can enhance your cooking skills while delving into the richness of the French language. The classes are hands-on, but as it’s only two (2) hours, much preparation will be done beforehand. Our time together hours includes tasting and eating, sharing bites and plates of prepared dishes.
