If you’re headed for Uzes and you want to learn to cook Provençal dishes you can easily prepare back home, meet Petra Carter. She’s the brains and bubbly personality behind Le Pistou Cooking School.
Petra and I have become great friends since meeting last year at her cooking school. Most people who meet the vivacious Dutch/Irish lady feel the same. Which may add to the fact that a class day at Le Pistou Cooking School is so much fun.
Petra’s interpretation of traditional foods from PROVENCE and nearby regions is focused on market-fresh foods, ease of preparation and beautiful presentation.
Her dishes can be served as a main course, starter or apero.
Once you are introduced to an interesting new food, like stuffed and tempura-fried courgette flowers (zucchini), you’ll realize you just read about it on the pages of a gourmet magazine.
You’ll learn knife skills as well as how to choose the best ingredients and cooking methods.
Mediterranean diet? The way Petra dishes it up, a “diet” never looked or tasted so good. Each food, each flavor and each recipe is fresh, healthy and impeccably prepared and presented.
Says Petra: “I hope you’ll MAKE THESE DISHES YOUR OWN by adapting them to your own personal taste” she says. “After all, that’s what CREATIVE COOKING is about.”
