We (my wife and I who are based in Geneva) were blessed to enjoy a wonderful day during the summer holidays with our best friends (who now live in Dubai) at Jean-Marc's home in Provence. Jean Marc has a wonderful way with people and created a relaxed and fun environment for us to enjoy learning much more about French cuisine... More

This was a truly fantastic experience. Chef Jean Marc and his wife Alice were extraordinary hosts. It's a day I will not forget. I would return in a heartbeat. The food, the wine, the comraderie around the table. And the setting! Fabulous in every way. Thanks for the most memorable time of our week in Provence.

As people who like to cook we have done a number of cooking classes as we travel. Jean Marc provides a class that takes simple ingredients and teaches how to create magnificent (but easy to reproduce) 4 courses using seasonal produce. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the menu. The techniques he shares add expertise to an otherwise experimental... More

Jean-Marc made this a very informative and hands-on culinary experience for 6 of us. We started with a visit to a local market as he explained the freshness and quality of the food in the Provence region. We then prepared a four course meal which we enjoyed with local wine in the beautiful setting of his home. Jean-Marc is a... More

We had a group of 12 and Chef Jean-Marc did an outstanding job of making sure everyone got to participate and truly enjoy the class. We learned some new techniques and new recipes and enjoyed the fruits of our labor. When we got there, they had coffee and cookies for us while he explained what the day had in store.... More

The cooking class with Jean Marc was the highlight of our trip to Southern France. In a small group of 4, we prepared a delicious 3 course menu, topped by great local vines and a visit to the local farmer's shop. The location is beautiful, with a very neat and professional kitchen and the patio offers fantastic views. The chef... More

We met Jean-Marc and Alice at their lovely home in the country at 8:45 AM We went to the local organic food co-op and met some of the farmers that grew the food products we would be preparing. The co-op has only seasonal local produce. Jean-Marc gave us some tips on what to look for when buying produce. We returned... More

We left the children to swim at the hotel nearby (older children) and spent a day cooking with Jean Marc and Alice . It was a wonderful experience in every sense. Loads of fun learning to cook new dishes, in fact dishes that we have never imagined being able to cook, and then enjoying a meal with old and new... More
