One of the best cooking classes in France is in Provence at Auberge La Feniere in Lourmarin.
One of my ex assistants got married there last fall, and I returned for lunch with pleasure to see how the place has grown. In addition to the gastronomic restaurant, there is a fun and delicious bistrot, cooking classes, more rooms, a gorgeous garden. All in all, an idyllic place to eat and stay, relax and cook with the fabulous Reine Sammut. Her cookbook is filled with wonderful photos of students over a season. The easy recipes are a joy to try and there are lots of tips and options with Reine’s savoir faire. A real treat. www.reinesammut.com
