Provence in California - Georgeanne Brennan

Goat Cheese Souffles, Tomato & Blue Cheese Tart and Stacks of Grilled Eggplant, Peppers & Mozarella

Williams-Sonoma Cheese: The Definitive Guide to Cooking with CheeseNoted author Georgeanne Brennan gives cooking classes at her home in Provence and in California.  My fellow Master Gardener, Kathie Fitzpatrick, and I attended one of her California classes this week.  Lucky for us, the menu was a celebration of yummy tomato dishes. 

We began by gathering herbs and vegetables from her large garden.  In addition to the above pictured dishes, we made pizzas topped with homemade sausage, fresh tomatoes & basil which were baked in the outdoor pizza oven as well as chicken provencal and ratatouille confit made in a Tajine.

Our morning of toil was rewarded with a delicious repast in the garden complete with a light rose from Provence.

In sum, a good time was had by all!
