Celebrate late summer’s bounty of herbs with four different sweet and savory recipes from southern France. We learn to cook with herbs using different techniques. Tomatoes and summer vegetables are a staple on the Provençal table, so we begin with petit farcis- mini tomatoes and veggies stuffed with an herbaceous breadcrumb mixture. This is followed with delicious surf and turf classics of herbed chicken in tarragon butter sauce hailing from the northern parts of France and rosemary skewered tuna, a specialty of the Riviera. We end with a dish similar to bananas foster, but using peaches flambéed with brandy and topped with zingy herbs. This class includes a demonstration style class in which you eat the completed meal, a glass of wine or appropriate pairing, and recipes.

Celebrate autumn the Italian way with seasonal recipes that transport you to the beautiful, rocky coastline of Liguria – also known as the Italian Riviera – stretches from the French border in the east to Tuscany in the west. The region’s holy trinity of ingredients of tomatoes, garlic and basil turn up in three classic recipes. Colorful chopped tomatoes with citrus pickled cucumber and onion make perfect accompaniments to an aromatic herbed couscous. This zingy dish makes a stand-alone meal or wonderful side salad. The Green Goddess Pesto Pasta brings together green vegetables, herbs and a surprise ingredient we don’t often associate with pasta. Dessert channels the Italy’s coastal breezes with the sophisticated Uova di Neve – Floating Islands of soft meringues boiled in milk topping on a velvety pistachio custard. This class includes a demonstration style class in which you eat the completed meal, a glass of wine or appropriate pairing, and recipes.
