Kids in the Kitchen

Picking basil leaves

Cuisine de Provence's youngest guest ever did a great job yesterday helping her parents in the kitchen: This young lady is just six years old but worked like a pro: picking basil leaves for a fresh green tapenade, chopping the vegetables for a mousseline de courgettes, filling filo parcels with chèvre and sun dried tomatoes and - while nobody was looking, composing a beautiful table decoration from flowers she found in the garden. It doesn't happen very often that parents bring their children to cooking class, but so far I found that the younger they are the more enthusiastic. It was a joy to see!

Preparing what we called....

.....Bonbons de Provence


  1. Hello! I'm back online and back from Uzbekistan! What a sweet post this is, and the pictures are adorable!

  2. What a delightful child, and a very understanding hostess too, I might add. The bonbons de Provence seem so easy to make too. Why, a child could make them!

    Thank you!

  3. I would like a little helper like this! Diane
