Le Pistou Cooking School Uzes, France

Get Out of the Heat and Learn to Cook Provençal 

Le Pistou Cooking School Uzes, FranceIf you’re headed for Uzes and want to learn to cook Provençal dishes, you can easily prepare them back home. Meet Petra Carter. She’s the brains and bubbly personality behind Le Pistou Cooking School.

Learn to Cook Provençal

Petra and I have become great friends since meeting at her cooking school last year. Most people who meet the vivacious Dutch/Irish lady feel the same. This 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, choosing 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.”
