La Cuisine Cachère
de Provence is the ultimate combination of a kosher cooking program
in Provence, shopping, sightseeing and experiencing the true feeling
of being a guest in Provence, not a tourist. You will meet with leaders
of and learn about the Jewish communities of Provence. Both the novice
and experienced cook will feel comfortable in an informal, fun environment.
A non-cooking spouse or friend may accompany you, and will participate
in all activities and meals.
THE COOKING CLASSES
There are five days of cooking,
hands-on, three hours each, specializing in Provençale and regional
cooking. Classes are in English and printed recipes are provided. Emphasis
is on the preparation, presentation and historical aspects of cooking.
Following each class, you will partake of the meal that has been prepared,
accompanied by the appropriate wines. A visit to the open air markets
will allow you to learn about and select ingredients to be used in class.
At the completion of the program, you will be presented with a certificate.
The Kosher certification is provided by Le Rabbin Jonathan STADJ, Chief Rabbi of Avignon and the region.While away from the domaine, we will enjoy meals which have been prepared for us by the Boucherie Cachère.
