Posted on 6th Dec 2017 in Art


Cook up a storm with star-chef trainer Cédric Séguela

Want to cook like a master chef? The Cote d’Azur hosts courses on pasta, pastry making and much else besides. Practise makes perfect with part three of our three part blog series:

Cooking Courses on the Cote d’Azur

Most cooking classes on the Cote d'Azur start with a market tour. The colourfully photogenic chaos of Nice’s Marché Cours Saleya and Marché Libération, plus Cannes’ Marché Forville, serve to whet appetites for later.

A Google search will bring up dozens of courses across the region to suit all budgets. But this hands-on cooking courses will allow you to compete with the Cours Saleya’s finest.

Course 3: Secrets de Cuisine

Who? Cédric Séguela, an ebullient young French chef who has worked in several Michelin-starred restaurants, including Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir au Quatre Saisons in Oxfordshire.

Why? Cédric combines culinary professionalism with bags of fun. His restaurant-standard cooking courses are as popular with kitchen professionals (including many superyacht chefs) as they are with laugh-a-minute holidaymakers. Cédric’s team also offer Michelin kitchen experience as they teach pastry, cocktail and local cuisine courses.

How? Reservations can be made up to 24 hours in advance, with a minimum of four participants. Whether it's sushi, éclairs or Provençal wine tasting, contact Cédric's team as soon as you know your dates.

When? Search Cédric’s online calendar for lessons. Although courses are best planned by emailing him in advance.

Where? An extraordinarily high-tech kitchen near Antibes that offers tasting spaces and contemporary kitchen equipment.

The bottom line. Two hour oenology or cocktail courses start at €54, with multi-day cookery certificates from €1,250.
