St Remy Cooking Classes at La Cuisine Provençale
After many years in Provence, Jane Satow has realized her dream of combining her two passions – food and culture. Earlier this year, she launched La Cuisine Provençale – a new interactive cooking school in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Jane moved to Provence with her young family and built her business around, introducing visitors the best that the region has to offer for food, wine and historical sites. She provides a unique set of tour itineraries through her company Provence Cultural Tours.
Tucked away in the heart of charming St Remy, La Cuisine Provençale is on a quiet street with a small square. After several months of renovation work, Jane gave us a look at the finished product. Step out of the tiny alley into a bright, ground floor kitchen. Designed with plenty of open space, up to 12 people can participate in a hands-on cooking class.
The location of La Cuisine Provençale is ideal. It’s a quick stroll from the centre of St Remy’s famous Wednesday morning, but just far enough away from the bustle. Join Jane on one of her market tours, followed by a cooking class and leisurely lunch in this secluded spot. Alternatively, discover the historical highlights of St Remy on a guided tour before or after dinner.
With all the fabulous vineyards nearby, the plan is to host wine tastings for up to 15 people. The full cooking class program continues to evolve. Jane promises that the offerings will include guest chefs, special tastings and fun culinary events such as dinner with ‘Les Français,’ with some local friends.
“La Cuisine Provençale is an authentic French kitchen in my home in the historic center of Saint Remy de Provence, where we come together to explore & create through traditional French regional recipes and enjoy beautiful meals together.” ~ Jane Satow
A food professional, Jane has spent countless hours meeting local producers and farmers. She spends her “spare time” researching recipes, tasting and studying the unique terroir in Provence. If you want to discover local seasonal and typically Provençal dishes, then look no further. Join Jane on a guided tour, for a cooking class or a glass of wine. The class details are available on her website.
