Taste of Provence June 4-11, 2017
Food lovers, francophiles and culture mavens will have the unique opportunity to travel to France for a “Taste of Provence” June 4 - June 11, 2017. This eight day, seven night escorted gourmet experience is offered by The Farm Cooking School in conjunction with boutique gourmet travel company Gout et Voyage, LLC. The all-inclusive (from the Avignon starting point) trip is limited to 5 guests. $5500.00 per person.
Provence is known for its stunning scenery, its deep history, and delicious foods and wines. The area has enchanted artists and chefs for centuries. While following in the footsteps of Van Gogh and Cézanne, participants will enjoy private cooking classes in chefs’ homes, a winery tour through the Rhône Valley, visits to the lively traditional and antique markets of the region, cultural sites, a gourmet walking tour through Avignon, travel to the charming hill villages of the Luberon and more.
Guests enjoy a private room in a 4-star boutique hotel for the duration of the trip, avoiding time wasted packing and unpacking and allowing time to experience the rhythms and charms of a typical Provencal town. Wine-paired meals are taken at small fine dining establishments inaccessible to larger groups. Those wishing to brush up on their French can participate in a French conversation group over breakfast.
