Savor Local Flavors and Fresh Produce in Your Self-Cooked Niçois Meal

Depart in the morning for a walking tour in Nice and reach a local market in one of the most exquisite districts of the town. Here, you will join the shoppers strolling through the market, admiring the vivid displays of seasonal produce, spices, candied fruit and flowers.Though the bigger stalls are the most dazzling with their array of colors, what really interests us is the small producers’ stalls. Depending on the season you might see organic lemons, perfect for making the local lemon tart; real wild asparagus; fragrant Mara des Bois strawberries; tomatoes ripened on the vine; peaches bursting with juice; and of course the mix of salad leaves known as mesclun (no Niçois meal would be complete without it). We will select the best produce for your menu and no matter what the main ingredient of our meal, we will not forget the wine and selection of cheeses.

We then make our way to the cooking studio, where everyone will play a role in preparing the meal. No need to worry if you are a novice cook, the atmosphere is relaxed! A couple of hours later we will sit down to an authentic Niçois meal and toast our efforts with a glass of rosé (or, if you prefer, an intriguing local red or white wine).
