Rosa gave us some great cooking tips, and importantly showed us how to cook a good Socca - comfort food in this part of the world. À wonderful way to wrap up our... More

A fabulous day starting at the market where Rosa introduced everyone to some of the local produce, then a well-planned and fascinating class with lots of hands-on cooking Provencal dishes. A sheer delight and delicious too!

We had local dishes and learned about the ingredients as well as the cooking techniques. Rosa was so nice - it made for a great day to just appreciate... More
