A new rosé wine on the menu
The rosé Chateau Haut-Musiel 2007 has just been added to the wine list of La Chassagnette. "This wine combines the festive spirit and the sharpness that one expects of a rosé wine, yet it is full-bodied enough to hold its flavour with any meal. It marries extremely well with Armand Arnal's cuisine", summarizes the wine-grower Jean-Marie Popelin. So, what's the secret? This rosé comes from two separate vinification processes, which are then bottled at the Chateau Haut-Musiel, at Domazan in the region of the Gard, which is 45 minutes away from Arles. It is to be tasted by the glass or by bottle at La Chassagnette, in the sunshine of the Camargue.

Chef’s cooking class
La Chassagnette cookery classes are available, according to different formulas in French or in English.
For the individual class, the chef Armand Arnal will welcome a group of 8 people maximum every Monday and Friday morning, in his kitchen.
Rendez-vous at 9a.m in La Chassagnette’s organic vegetable garden, where you can wander and talk with the gardeners, but, most of all, pick the vegetables and herbs that you will need to prepare the dishes on the menu. Your basket under your arm, you will return to the kitchen where Armand Arnal will guide each of his students in the creation of their vegetarian dishes; giving advice in everything from basic cooking methods to those little professional “tricks”. Once the preparation is over, it’s time to sit down together to an extraordinary lunch, where each person is both cook and guest.
The same formula is available for companies, who may choose a shorter version of the class, lasting one and a half hours, leaving time, for example to hold business meetings in one of the private rooms or in La Chassagnette’s personal library.
Another original idea proposed: cooking with four hands. For the evening, you can become the chef of La Chassagnette. Armand Arnal will be your personal teacher and will help you prepare a dinner that you will share with your guests, who will most certainly never forget this moment, just as you won’t…
Cookery classes: 90 euros for individuals, half-day course (lunch included)
Every Monday and Friday morning except in July and August.
For businesses : prices available according to the number of participants (contact La Chassagnettte)
« Four-hands » cookery class: prices varying according to the number of guests (contact La Chassagnette)
