For the last two years, I have given cooking classes at our local BIOCOOP, a French chain of organic co-ops. Our store here in Prades has a nice layout, with wooden shelves, an inviting atmosphere and even a central play area for children to use as their parents shop.

You can visit their blog by clicking on their logo below.

Every second Thursday, I give informal classes that teach participants how to cook with fresh, seasonal produce and of course, all those out of the ordinary ingredients so common to this type of store. Quinoa, soya protein, tofu, adzukis beans, seaweed, almond milk, different gluten free flours among many others. My goal isn’t to convert everyone to becoming vegetarian and eating seeds, grains and sprouts all the time, but rather how to incorporate these types of ingredients into a modern, appetizing cuisine.

I am now branching out and offering classes out of my home and also a local maison d’hôte. These classes will be very different from what I do at the biocoop. For instance, the next two classes are:

CUPCAKES – how to bake and decorate          Thursday November 29th 2012  from 9am to 12pm

CHRISTMAS CHOCOLATES AND CANDIES – caramels, chocolates, mints, perfect for offering as gifts or to guests         Lundi 10 décembre 2012 9am – 12pm

The classes cost 20 € a session. Anyone interested can e-mail me for more information or inscription. I’ll be putting together the program for the new year very shortly, so keep an eye out. There will definitely be bread baking classes in the schedule !

And if you haven’t checked it out already, I have a French language cooking blog:

If you read French or enjoy trying, come see me there for a selection of French and international family cuisine !

Adapting to a new culture, raising children, taking care of animals, growing a vegetable garden, cooking for her family and friends, teaching cooking classes and trying to maintain a fairly organized and inviting home.
