Cooking Class “Tomato Toast with Chives” Recipe

Bonjour from Bonnie Jo Manion

My love for Provence and healthy Mediterranean cuisine has lead to magical visits there, cooking classes, exploring the markets, following favorite chefs, and meeting culinary icons. I invite you to enjoy "A Taste of French Country Living" through my culinary events, gardening, design, and lifestyle.

More than a cooking class, it is a culinary experience. Come spend the day in France, and enjoy a leisurely French Country cooking class and lunch.

Your day includes an overall extraordinary culinary event with a garden and vineyard tour, cooking class, lunch, recipes, and a chance to shop for garden antiques and cottage decor!

Share a special day and give the gift of a "Lunch in Provence" Culinary Experience, with a personalized gift certificate, ordering online, or organizing a private class. Please contact Bonnie for details, or (tel) (760) 402-7600.
