What you'll do

2pm I'll be hosting you in my house and my garden, in a traditionnal rustique villa from the Nice countryside. You'll be welcomed with a big smile and will be given a introduction to the niçoise cuisine. In the garden you'll discover the aromatic herbs and how to use them. 2.15pm Then, step by step, I will teach you how to cook a pissaladière - a traditionnal dish from the niçoise cuisine, a caramelised onions tart (one per person or one to share between four of you). While it's cooking in the oven you are free to engage in a wild game of pétanque in the garden. If the weather is not on our side, will enjoy hot or cold beverages by the fireplace, board games, cards, tea and relaxing time is on the program. 4pm It's now time to taste your wonderful pissaladière. You'll enjoy the way of life à la niçoise, the view from our house and the calm of the Niçois countryside, so close but also so far away from the French Riviera frenzy. You'll leave with the recipe, a head full of memories and a belly full of amazing local food.

Gene

Hello everyone, My name is Geneviève. I was born and bred in Nice and come from an italian family where good food, good cooking has always been essential. Since my early childhood I have always known that cooking means happiness, share experiences and brings everyone together. I have been lucky enough to become a chef and after many years working in different kitchens I have opened my ow restaurant: "La Reine des Quiches". A place I have developed for 5 years in Nice. I love to share those culinaries moments, talk about the memories cooking brings back and forge new ones. I now want to keep passing on my knowledge and my passion, in a different way.

Where you'll be

My house is located between the sea and the mountains, 30 mins away from Nice, in a hamlet called Sclos de Contes. The house overlook the Paillon valley, the ruins of Châteauneuf castle, the Mt Férion and Berre-les-Alpes. A superb view from the poolside and the summer kitchen.
