A French desserts class focusing on the ingredients of the South of France, focusing on Provence and the Mediterranean.

Come join us for the delicious and decadent desserts known in this corner of the South of France. Think fruits, nuts and olive oil. In this class we will delve into desserts such as the nougat glacé, the Tropezienne, the fougasse d’aigues mortes and use ingredients like safran & lavender.

Private class price: 400€ for up to 4 people (80 € for each additional person). Be sure to check the box book entire course (private event) in section 1.

In this French desserts class, you will learn how to make individual desserts as well as a large dessert serving 6-8 people, all easy to reproduce at home.

All the recipes you will learn will be based on seasonal, fresh ingredients. We will make 5 awe inspiring desserts together that though relatively easy to make will be both elegant and tasty.
