A Scot in France

I enjoyed the flexibility of the programme, a mix of watching and doing. All questions were answered! Jon is a great chef with a wide range of experience in culinary affairs. I enjoyed learning and chatting with him. I was alone, but joined another couple and we all had a really good experience.
Great cooking and dining experience!

A great cooking and dining experience! John is a great teacher and everything was perfectly planned. My 15yo daughter and I both enjoyed every minute of our time in the kitchen. After eating, you can walk around the market and shop for spices and other products. Highly recommend!
Great experience just directions lacking

Great experience! Would highly recommend. Good balance of learning and doing. Chef John himself is lovely- originally from America but has been in avignon for 20 years and everyone seemed to know him (a la stopping by and saying hi), which made the experience all the more comfortable. We ultimately had a private class which was a pleasant surprise and we were very happy with the menu choices- all were delicious! He also knew my dad was interested in certain things and made sure to work that into our time together. And once we sat down to eat they paired the meal with wine :). We also started the class with some amazing cheese tastings and then learned about olive oil! We had a lot of trouble finding this tour and found it difficult to contact anyone. The cooking class is at a stall IN the market, which wasn’t mentioned in the directions but they said they would update that. Other than the 30 min delayed start and slight panic that we had missed it, it was a wonderful way to spend the day!
Unique culinary experience in Avignon

This cooking workshop exceeded our expectations! The workshop began with a tour of the market in Avignon, with a very interesting background on a variety of products including fish, cheese, olives and other goods, along with samples. We then prepped and cooked a lovely meal including tapenade, mushroom risotto, duck breast, cake with plum sauce and plenty of delicious French wines. Our instructor, Jon, was very engaging and informative, and a lot of fun in addition! I would highly recommend as a good way to sample local products from the Avignon area.

We loved our time with Jonathan at the market and cooking class. Everyone was friendly, kind, and inviting. We learned some new recipes and many facts about food from the Provence area. Highly recommend taking advantage of this if you can

Well Done!

I enjoyed the workshop with Jon. It inspired me to cook some new things. Being connected to a big market is a real plus, but better directions to his location in the market would be helpful. Jon was very knowledgeable and kept the class moving at a good pace. I would recommend it to a friend.

Our 2 couple group enjoyed Jon and the techniques he taught us. We will try them when we return to America. The food and wine were AMAZING!

Great non-sight seeing experience in Avignon!

My husband and I had a great cooking class in Avignon with Chef Jonathan Chiri. The class is located at Cusine Centr'Halles, a very cute little restaurant located inside Les Halles food market. We started with a food tour and tasting at various market stalls, and then settled at the restaurant to prepare a 3 course meal. The prep was really fun, the variety of food excellent, and everything tasted amazing at the end. Jonathan was also great at imparting tips during prep. Very highly recommended!

French cooking lesson in avignon Provence
, Jun 2019
My husband and I did this half day French cooking lesson with John and it was an unbelievably great experience. From the visit in the market to choose the fresh vegetables and meat to learning the basics of preparing and cooking a French 3 course meal. One of the highlights of our trip. Pauline & Keith NZ
