Our Burgundy Cooking Vacations
Cooking Vacations In Burgundy
Visit France on one of our Burgundy cooking vacations or Burgundy wine tours.
Some of our first culinary vacations in France were in the region of Burgundy, home to wonderful food and world-famous wines. Come explore a land famous for its exquisite culinary treats such as boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin on our Burgundy wine tours and cooking vacations. Take French cooking lessons using the freshest of local ingredients to create rich and hearty dishes, and then enjoy the fruits of your labors with fine wines.
Burgundy is as rich in history as in gastronomy, and our cooking tours include everything from visits of sleepy French villages, to medieval churches and Romanesque monasteries. The cities of Dijon and Beaune offer plenty of palaces, museums, and gastronomic tastings for our culinary travelers to explore.
The region is also replete with parks – including Morvan National Park – and beautiful countryside, perfect backdrops for our Burgundy wine tours and culinary vacations. It is traversed by the stunning Burgundy canal, which meanders through the countryside and provides the perfect venue for a stroll, a boat ride, or a picnic during your Burgundy culinary tour.

Your culinary tour of Burgundy will introduce you to some of France’s most known regional fare. Taste Boeuf Bourguignon, Oeufs en meurette, Pôchouse, Coq au vin, escargots à la Bourgogne, and more.
