Online Cooking Classes with International Recipes
After the pandemic hit in 2020, I began doing Zoom demos of my favourite international recipes. The classes include a selection of French, Moroccan and Italian dishes. I quickly realized that it was a great way to stay connected with the culinary world and clients of Pitcher & Powell who love to go on culinary journeys and yoga retreats to Provence, Marrakech and Sicily.
I began developing themed menus and offering plating ideas for the classes. Since July 2020, I have taught 10+ classes, and I will continue to add to my offerings. The cooking classes have been a great way to collaborate with culinary vendors such as Easy Leaf Products and Melissa’s Produce in Los Angeles. The Zoom classes allow me to stay linked to the Perfectly Provencereadership. I usually live 3-4 months near Aix-en-Provence and am a regular contributing writer to this lifestyle magazine.

Picnic is a universal term for creating a culinary experience in nature with some of your favourite portable foods. The French, though, take the word pique-nique to an elevated culinary level! My experiences in North America pale in comparison to the memorable pique-nique outings I have experienced in Provence. Here are the essential ingredients for a Provencal Picnic.

Food Styling Tips
The French style of entertaining called the apéro dînatoire is a favourite way of throwing parties in France. Normally, I spend time in Provence every year, specifically in the area of Aix-en-Provence! I love apéro dînatoire gatherings and the spontaneity of inviting friends over. When you mention apéro dînatoire, your guests will know that plenty of food will be served casually. This type of entertaining is the perfect balance between the apéro cocktail party and a formal dinner.

Culinary Adventure in Marrakech
As we exited the heavy wooden door of the hamman, my eyes smarted in the sun. How could it possibly still be daylight in the Medina? In two hours, we had been lathered, scrubbed, and massaged. It was blissful. This experience might best describe a Pitcher and Powell culinary-yoga escape to Marrakech.
Getting to Marrakech from Provence is an easy two and a half (2.5) hour flight. The riad selected by Pitcher & Powell is an oasis in the Medina with only eight (8) rooms. The hotel was renovated by the owners, an Italian-Swiss couple, who have lived on the African continent for 35+ years. The Pitcher and Powell guests enjoy the riad in its entirety. It’s a “home away from home” experience. Keep reading about our Marrakesh culinary adventure here.
