A participant in the Cooking Workshop has suddenly had to drop out.

Sadly and painfully she broke her collar bone, in a bicycle accident.

Only three weeks away I know–it’s making me nervous!–but here is the link in case anyone can take up the place.

I’m planning a cooking workshop in Lautrec the first weekend in October, based on my cookbook, Delicious Dishes for Diabetics and healthy, simple recipes in the Mediterranean tradition.

Lautrec

What’s on the menu?

  • A three-and-a-half day workshop in Lautrec (department of the Tarn in southwest France), in a charming small hotel with a magnificent garden and lovely views.
  • We’ll make our meals and eat them together.
  • All meals and wine are included.
  • Group size limited to about six people (non-cooking partners or traveling companions are welcome to come along and enjoy the meals we prepare for a supplement).
  • Excursions to local markets.
  • All participants have their own private room with en-suite bathrooms.
The focus:
Preparing (and enjoying) healthy recipes based on the Mediterranean way of eating.
My cookbook and blog will be the springboard for the recipes–depending on what is in season.
Dates:
Starting Thursday afternoon, Oct. 4th and finishing Sunday night, Oct. 7th with the farewell meal;
Departure the following morning, Monday, Oct. 8th 2012–i.e. four nights, three full days and a half-day on arrival.
Who might come:
Anyone interested in developing a wider repertoire of healthy recipes that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
