Not just another cook book

Michelin star chef Eric Sapet, La Petite Maison de Cucuron, will be launching his new cook book "Mes Cours de Cuisine" at the FNAC Valentine in Marseilles on May 8, 2010 at 3:30 pm. It’s not just a book signing – it’s a full on cooking demo.

Eric started his career at La Tour d’Argent in Paris before returning south to Herbes Blanches and then the Moulin de Lourmarin. In 2007 he purchased his current restaurant in Cucuron and was awarded a star just 2 years later.

His Saturday cooking classes are booked weeks ahead of time. The success of the classes may have to do with his jovial disposition and his generosity in terms of both the portions served and the time he allocates to each participant. Eric is ready to share his passion with ever food enthusiast who walks into his restaurant.

This book is a compilation of some of the classes he has offered at the beautiful house now restaurant that overlooks the pond in the heart of Cucuron. Photographer Jean-Philippe Garabedian has captured the most mouth watering photos.  It's not just another cookbook - it's a journey into Provençal cooking as you meet some of Eric's favourite purveyors. If you can’t make it to the class, brush up on your French and have a look at his book. You can get them at his restaurant as of April 27th and book stores as of May 6th, 2010.
