Here’s what you missed from our March 2019 Newsletter.
Spring is on its way. The flowers are budding and so are we! We’re shedding the last of the Winter blues in our March issue with one last hurrah! This month’s tasty recipes included the chef Eric’s Coquille Saint Jacques à la Bretonne and homemade quince paste. Yum!
We talked about the opening of Van Gogh’s starry night light and sound display in les Baux de Provence in our Uzes and Provence happenings and gave you tips on how to make your way through the various brocants and antique markets throughout France like you mean business.
If you didn’t get the news, you missed out on the special offer on our Week-long cooking holiday in Uzès with chef Eric. But if you ask nicely, we’d be happy to tell you all about it.
We made a little selection for our subscribers of recipes to chase away the last of the Winter blues, from cheese soufflés to hazeulnut spreads.

Gluten-free bread class
Sometimes the choice to go gluten-free is not a choice at all. When our special guest Marjorie Jego’s battle with cancer caused her to take a hard look at the foods she eats, gluten-free was the only logical choice but giving up good bread was not an option! Now in complete remission and stronger than ever (just ask the students in her Zumba and Strong classes), she is ready to share with us, her “secret” recipe to delicious gluten-free bread and more importantly how to prepare it properly. Join her March 31st at our school in Arpaillargues for a 3 hour bread baking course from 3PM. If youare interested in signing up, please contact us for details. 60€/person
