La bonne cuisine est la base du véritable bonheur (Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness). Auguste Escoffier, French chef and culinary writer.
NG Art Creative will nourish you from dawn to dusk and tantalise your taste buds with the freshest seasonal market produce. In the morning, help yourself to a sumptuous breakfast of organic cereals, fresh pastries, luscious seasonal fruits accompanied by a selection of teas and fresh coffee to get your creative juices flowing.
Equipped with your own kitchenette in the studio, you will be able to create your own delicious lunches with fresh ingredients sourced from nearby providers and markets.
Choose from a selection of artisan breads, cheeses, charcuterie boards of saucissons & terrines. There are a number of hidden sanctuaries within the garden setting to bask in the light of the apres-midi whilst you savour the sublime produce and contemplate on your creative practice.
Passionate culinary duo Madame Nicky and her partner Monsieur Edwin will twice weekly conjure up delectable dinners using the wonderful array of fresh fruit and vegetables sourced directly from the local farmers, the village fromagerie, boulangerie, boucherie and handpicked herbs from our ever evolving potager.
These dinners will take place in the delightful dinning areas within the homestead and grounds of the Moulin.
Communal dinners are funded by the residence and prepared by the creatives themselves will be a shared experience.These can be enjoyed in both the idyllic garden setting and country-style kitchen by bright summer’s night, moonlight or candlelight.
This is a time to share ideas, collaborate, and wind down after a long day in the field; en plein air or busy at work in the studio. Reflect on your creative endeavours and revel in the still night air.
Local chefs are available to offer you cooking workshops in which you can learn traditional Provençal cooking, and return to your home country with thrilling new recipes and menus to inspire any luncheon and or dinner party.
Local community gatherings with fellow creatives, garden parties, evening musical soirées, feasts for the senses dinners, wine tastings and networking events are also offered.
As the French saying goes, Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimez beaucoup (eat well, laugh often, love abundantly).
