Live a day like a local
Why an Italian Cookery School in Provence? Because I'm Italian of course and because our culinary culture is so wide and extraordinary that I could say we don't need anything else (proudly Italian). But the main reason is that Italian cooking is about highlighting ingredients rather than transforming them. I’m passionate about ancient recipes as well and through the years I developed a way of cooking that have deep roots in history while it's quite contemporary and healthy.
At “Venise en Provence ” cooking-classes are hands on; the school is located on the hilltop of the beautiful village of Goult, in a charming mas surrounded by a genuine provençal garden with olive trees and astonishing views. The cost of classes includes: food, wines for the meal that I’ll choose according with the recipes, an aperitif and obviously a long lazy lunch. You don’t need to bring anything with you as at the School there are all the materials and aprons. After the class we’ll enjoy what we cooked around a beautiful table in the garden under the olive trees or in the large dining room if the weather is not fine, eating, tasting wines, making friends and laughing a lot. Last but not least I always offer my favorite Prosecco for the aperitif paired with nibbles.
I hold classes for small groups, generally 6/8 people though sometimes can be till 10.

Foraging is a tradition in the Venetian Countryside. I remember I went in the fields on springtime with my mother, before the farmers started plowing the soil. It was the period when there was nothing in the vegetable garden but Nature offered us a generous amount of different herbs rich in healthy components. It always has been our springtime detox diet. From the end of March till the end of May Provence offers quite a variety of wild food. I developed recipes from starter to dessert; it's incredible to see what we can do. So instead of going to the market we'll wander in the magical supernatural market. Cost 190 euros x person the program as for class with market tour but foraging instead of shopping.
