Atelier Cuisine Niçoise

Located in the heart of the Old Town, near the Cours Saleya and its market, on the ground floor of the Palais du Sénat, a historic site that is already home to the Nice heritage centre, the “Atelier Cuisine Niçoise” offers cooking classes, culinary competitions, exhibitions and product presentations.

L’Atelier has a classroom – accessible to people with reduced mobility – with 12 workstations and all the equipment necessary for the many recipes developed throughout the seasons.

Depending on the chosen course, participants can learn the emblematic recipes of Nice’s cuisine before tasting them on the spot or taking their creations away to enjoy with their loved ones. Pissaladière, stuffed vegetables, gnocchi, “capouns” and other savoury or sweet chard pies will no longer hold any secrets for them.

As a family, as a couple, with friends or simply to treat yourself, it is possible to discover the richness of Nice’s culinary heritage by “getting your hands dirty” in the company of a chef specialised in Nice cuisine.
