La Matinée Cooking Classes


Throughout the year Kate teaches simple and intensive one-day classes focused on special projects: Savory and Sweet French Pastry; A Long French Lunch; Market to Table. Coming to France this winter and want to know how to make a perfect Cassoulet? Summer vacationing in Southwest France and want to learn a taste of how Gascon dishes are made? Pop down from Paris on the TGV for a day of cooking in the French Countryside. We’ll arrange a pickup and return to the Gare d’Agen— just 3.5 hours from Paris; leave at 7:00 am and return to Paris at 8:00 pm. Staying in the area? It’s even closer- 1 hour train from either Bordeaux or Toulouse; 25 minutes from Agen, Nerac; 45 minutes from Lectoure, Condom, or Auch.

Market Classes are usually scheduled for Wednesday or Saturday market days. Cooking Day Classes are hands-on and delivered in English or French. Come for a day of exploring good Gascon food and cook with Kate Hill in her Kitchen at Camont.
