Fabulous!
This week-long class was the perfect way to spend time in Provence. The village of Uzes and its market are beautiful. Chef Eric and Yetunde knowledgeable, funny and warm; great way to learn about French cuisine and, of course, prepare some amazing, delicious meals.

Week in Uzes
We very much enjoyed our week in Uzes. The accommodations were spacious and in a relaxing environment. Yetunde and Eric provided a first class experience from the cooking classes to the excursions. I had a goal to learn how to prepare fish and cook more Mediterranean dishes. This week absolutely provided me with that opportunity.

Your Hosts

Chef Eric Fraudeau

Chef/Culinary Expert

I’m Chef Eric Fraudeau and since I’ve started my culinary career at 15, food has been my passion with a career spanning 4 countries on 3 continents. With my wife, Yetunde, I opened a French cooking school in Paris to welcome food & wine enthusiasts back in 2007 offering hands-on cooking classes that went beyond just another fun thing to do in Paris. With this same drive, we’ve created a tour in Seville, Spain, focusing on the local cuisine for a rich cultural experience. My approach is simple, anyone truly can cook, and techniques learned from a professionally trained chef can enhance your cooking regardless of the type of cuisine. My team of chefs & I are happy to share our knowledge with you so you can use your new skills in your everyday meal preparation. It’s not about memorizing recipes. It is about techniques you can apply at home. 

Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau

Owner/Sales & Marketing

I’m Yetunde, owner and food travel coordinator of culinary tours in France & Spain with Let’s Eat The World. I wanted to create enriching programs that combine cooking lessons & cultural excursions to inspire you to travel and discover. My culinary background, love of food, travel, & culture brought me initially to Paris, France to work in hospitality. Our culinary experiences in Seville, Spain will delight you, educate you, & feed your hunger giving you countless memories and stories to share when you get home. Eric and I share a love of travel and a desire to learn as much as possible as we explore the world of food.

FAQs

What's the difference between your 4-day and 6-day tour?
We’ve designed a shorter tour for those who like to keep things short and sweet. The big difference between the two tours is the extra days that allow for more hands-on cooking lessons as well as a day trip to sherry country outside of Seville. Our 4-day tour does not include a day trip
Do I have to be an expert cook?
Not at all, the recipes we will do together will build on the skills you have already and give you the confidence to try new recipes in the future
Do I have to speak Spanish?
Our tours and classes are all in English. Your hosts speak Spanish and will assist you along the way but Hola, Buen Día, or Buenos Día and Gracias certainly wouldn’t hurt.
I’m a solo traveler, is this week right for me?
We have often had participants join our tours on their own and who have left with new friends. We bring together food & travel enthusiasts so whether you are traveling solo or as a couple, our small group size is ideal for everyone to feel welcome. Please note that if you are traveling solo and require a single-occupancy room, there is a single occupancy fee.
I'm a little unsure of travel during the COVID pandemic. What sort of Insurance is available?
We understand that these are difficult times for travel and we’ll do our best to work with you in the event of a COVID-related cancelation to allow you to obtain a refund or to postpone your dates. We are fully vaccinated and will only admit vaccinated individuals at this time. For extra peace of mind! Apply for your FREE international traveler’s insurance from the Andalusian government for holidays taking place from now through June 30, 2022
Can you recommend insurance for my trip?
No one wishes to think about what could go wrong on a trip but surprises can be costly. We highly advise that you also look into comprehensive travel insurance. You can review this website for insurance comparisons.
