What you'll do

Today, living in Annecy, the « Little Venise of the Alpes », 30 minutes away from Geneva, I find inspiration in the regional and local products the region has to offer, in order to create an inventive and generous French cuisine.
This is why I propose you a day of "cooking and sharing" : a typical French culinary experience.

9 :00 am
Visit of the local market ( tuesday and friday) in the Old town of Annecy in the heart of the historical district.
We will meet the local producers of cheese, fruits and veggies.
We will stop in local shops and buy all the necessary ingredients to elaborate the recipes for our meal.

10:30 am
Together we will cut, slice, boil, simmer and cook an enjoyable French seasonal lunch.

13:00 pm
A table ! Let's eat together at a beautifully dressed table with silverware, crystal, and « Limoges » dishes.
A glass of AOC ( origin controlled appellation ) regional wine will be served if you wish.

Leaving with the recipes you made, and with great memories of our day, get ready to impress your friends and family back home.

Let's get in touch !
Other things to note
If you wish to share the cooking experience without the market, just let me know.
On thursdays, because there is no market, we go directly to my place to do our cooking.

A story about cooking—a story about sharing a good time !

From the huge family tables where I enjoyed the scrumptious dishes of my maternal grandmother, native of Normandy, on one side, and my Irish paternal grandmother on the other side, to my delicatessen shop in Savannah Georgia (USA), cooking has always been part of my life.
Cooking has been flowing in my veins and is my true passion.
I have gained these skills through my various international experiences alongside my desire to meet people.
As a mom of 3 kids, cooking is still an everyday pleasure !

Where you'll be

The old town market ( on tuesdays and fridays) is the oldest and the most typical one in Annecy.
It takes place in the medieval streets along the Thiou river.
You will be able to see nice old medieval buildings : Palais de L'Ile, Pont Morens, and Saint Claire 's gate
It's an easy way to discover "the little Venise of the Alps" in less than 30 minutes.
On our way home, enjoy the lakeside scenery !

Sibylle is a charming guide, host, and instructor. We had a wonderful time and learned much about Annecy, living in France, and French cuisine. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Sibylle’s cooking experience!! Everything was great—the market where she taught us about French ingredients and what to buy, the prep and cooking time where she guided us through the cooking steps, how she provided transportation—and the food was delicious! She is a lovely person and her home is perfect for an experience like this. Go cook with Sibylle!

Very nice experience in company with both Sybille and the other guests. Sybille was very good explayning in english and was in generel very inspiering, naturel and positive. I really enjoyed that she let us have "hands on" in each process of the cooking. I highly recommand this experience specially to foreign tourists as a useful and pleasent, cultural experience.

I would 100 % recommend doing Sibylle’s cooking experience. I enjoyed meeting Sibylle. I loved every bit of this experience from visiting fresh market to cooking at Sybill’s kitchen, to eating a delicious meal. What can I say you cannot visit Annecy and not do this experience.

Спасибо большое Сибилль за это гастрономическое впечатление! Утром мы встретились и пошли на живописный рынок для покупки продуктов, Сибилль рассказала как правильно выбирать фермерские продукты, мы продегустировали различные джемы и позже отправились готовить блюда, из всех тех продуктов, что приобрели на рынке. Дальше было настоящее гастрономическое путешествие! Французские сыры, тартины, мясо, меренги и многое другое! Будем рекомендовать всем друзьям и знакомым данное впечатление!!большое спасибо!
