During your stay, enjoy sharing a joyful moment to cook in the chef's kitchen and learn some new dishes from the chef. She will share her tips and tricks with you during a cookery lesson. You can choose between local cuisine (du terroir), pastry lessons or more exotic cuisines, like the Vietnamese cuisine.
Marianne is a chef and has done her cookery education in Avignon, Provence. She gained culinary experience in good restaurants in the Provence and in the Auvergne (Brunel, Avignon and at Régis Marcon, 3 Michelin stars) but she traveled also through Europe to discover the Spanish and Italian kitchen. She went not less than five summers to one of the Hebridean Islands, Colonsay in Scotland, to cook many dinners and lunches. Born in the Netherlands, she is used to cook all the world cuisines. She used to live on a house boat very close to Amsterdam, where she held cookery lessons, table d'hôtes and catered for numerous clients in Amsterdam. Now, she lives on a beautifully restored farm in the Tarn.
After having cooked a complete menu or some specific dishes (depending on your cookery lesson), we will taste the dishes together, accompanied by a local wine from Gaillac or Marcillac.
Please ask Marianne when you have specific wishes for a cookery lesson.
