Summer Dessert Perfection in a Frozen Nougat with Nuts

This year, we’ve introduced a new dessert class around oh so familiar ingredients and recipes of the south of France, most notably of Provence. In this class, you’ll prepare five (5) desserts individual portions and a large family-style sweet.

One dessert that we absolutely love is this frozen nougat with almonds, hazelnuts and pistachio. A great dessert that can even be made in advance (even by several months), if well wrapped. Make it as an individual dessert or as a terrine. The perfect union between the classic nougat and ice-cream – how could you not love it?

Provençal Dessert Class is on Thursdays in Uzès. English session at 9 am and French session at 2pm. Book a class now for a sweet time!

Cookn with Class Uzes

Cook’n With Class has been in operation since 2007 in Paris offering French Cooking Classes (in English), to visiting tourists and locals interested in learning about this very important part of French culture. The school offers classes from French Market to Bread Baking and Macarons. Chef Eric Fraudeau, who worked both in France and internationally, along with his wife Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau, opened their second school, Cook’n With Class Uzès in 2015 in the sunny south of France, this time focusing on Provençal and Mediterranean cuisine. They also offer a 5 day/7-night culinary holiday package (Week in Uzès), including accommodations, with tours, tastings and of course cooking.

A new addition to the Cook'n with Class repertoire are a wide range of options for online cooking classes for those of us who can’t make it to France but are still looking for an authentic French experience.
