Flavors of Provence
May 30 - June 7, 2015
Amidst enchanting orchards, vineyards, villages, and especially in the kitchens of skilled chefs, let the flavors of culture and cuisine reveal an authentic and joyful portrait of Provence. During this 9-day small-group journey, devote yourself to joie de vivre, love of learning, and employing all senses in the enjoyment of local specialties: artisan cheeses, olive oils, verdant local vegetables, delicate baked goods, confections, sumptuous wines, and much more. Learn from a two Michelin-starred chef in the kitchens of a Relais & Chateau property. Visit extraordinary places: perched villages, local markets, a small distillerie known for heavenly pear eau de vie, the Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard, hilltop fortifications dating back as far as 6,000 BC, Avignon’s Palace of the Popes, and places from the lives and works of Van Gogh. Accommodations in award-winning Domaine de Capelongue infuse the journey with warm hospitality and elegance. Santé!
