Here is a sweet something to start your week with.

The Tiger in a Jar filmmakers spent some time earlier this year with the mother-daughter team behind The Cook’s Atelier, a cooking school in Beaune, France. Founders Marjorie Taylor and her daughter Kendall Smith Franchini are big proponents of the slow food tradition of France, building several of their classes and workshops around the farmers’ markets and local food producers in their region.
