Petra Carter is the smiling face behind the cooking school Le Pistou. The cookery school is centrally located in Uzès, right next to the tourist office and steps away from the main boulevard. The one-time garage was wholly transformed into a bright, lofted space equipped explicitly for cooking classes.

This lady - previously the food-editor of Irish Tatler - has developed several options for classes at le Pistou Cookery School. There are workshops and multi-day classes where students dive into the magic of cooking with flavours of the South of France.
