Enjoy the Tastes of Provence Harvest Menu by Goût et Voyage

With the prospect of shorter days, cooler nights and relaxed meals with friends and family, Nutmeg enlisted Martine Bertin-Peterson to design a Provence Harvest Menu. This three-course meal is a celebration of the colours and flavours of autumn with pears, squash, lamb and a sweet finish.

Accomplished only begins to describe Martine Bertin-Peterson a lady who speaks five languages, worked in corporate marketing, owned an art gallery in Santa Fe and runs a bespoke travel company called Goût et Voyage. You can read more about Bertin-Peterson here and her small-group tours in Provence here.

A little closer to her home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Bertin-Peterson also offers cooking classes. Her culinary skills honed by years of formal classes and a mother who was a fantastic cook. Goût et Voyage cooking classes began about four years ago when Bertin-Peterson realized that many people do not bother cooking at home anymore – between take-out meals and restaurant dining. According to Bertin-Peterson, this culinary gap was the inspiration for her classes.
