Provence Culinary Tours

Discover Provence on an amazing French cooking vacation! Savor delectable Provencal cuisine including bouillabaisse made from fish just brought to the market that morning. Visit a family goat farm to try their freshly made goat cheese, or an olive mill to taste just pressed oil. Enjoy a unique, hands-on Provence culinary tour and practice using local herbs—such as the famous Provencal lavender, rosemary, and thyme—and vegetables picked from the garden by your own hands. Sip fine Provencal wines while lounging in the southern sun on a terrace overlooking the very vineyards that produced them. Shop in chic riviera towns like Nice or St. Tropez, or explore the quiet woods, lakes and picturesque villages of the interior. Add to that the famed historical sites of Avignon, Orange, Arles, the landscapes that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne, and you will surely agree that Provence is the perfect destination for an unforgettable cooking vacation.
