Center City’s Patou is offering a Provencal cooking class. Chef Patrice Rames is teaching how to cook the “Tastes of the Cote d’Azur” on Thursday, April 19. The cost is $80 per person and includes wine (one glass pared with each dish), tax and gratuity. It’s not a interactive class per-se; the gist we get from Patou’s press release is that guests will be offered a cooking demonstration by Rames of each dish being served. Still, regional French cooking classes of any sort are thin on the ground in Philly and it’s worth a shot. For reservations, call (215) 928-2987. On the Provencal tip, Patou also offers house rentals in Provence.
