About this experience
Bring the vivid colors of Nice’s famous Cours Saleya food market to life in your own kitchen with writer and food tour guide Rosa Jackson. You’ll spend your time chopping and mixing as you prepare two classic Niçoise dishes: the summer vegetable stew known as ratatouille (it’s not what you saw in the movie—and you’ll find out why!), and clafoutis, a custard-y cake that lets fresh summer fruit shine. Along with her tales from the French coast, Rosa will teach you the best way to slice and caramelize onions, and how to coax all the flavor out of summer vegetables, including the often-frustrating eggplant. By the end of this workshop, you can count on French recipes and joie de vivre becoming mainstays in your kitchen and home.

Meet Rosa Jackson
Rosa Jackson never looked back after tasting her first coffee éclair at the age of four, when her family relocated to Paris for a year. After working as a food writer for a daily newspaper in Canada, she moved to France in 1995 and founded Paris Market Tours, the first company to offer tours of the city’s food markets. During her parallel career as a France-based food writer, Rosa has edited several editions of the Time Out Paris Eating and Drinking guide and contributed to publications such as Food & Wine, Eating Well, The Financial Times, Australian Gourmet Traveller, and France Magazine. Rosa has published three cookbooks in French with Marabout, a division of Hachette. Her book Gourmet Paris won the Gourmet World Cookbook award for best travel guidebook. Today, Rosa divides her time between Nice, where she runs the cooking school Les Petits Farcis, and Paris, where she heads the food tour company Edible Paris.
