Foodie Paradise in Burgundy

The French’s flair for food and wine is no more evident than among the vineyards and towns of Burgundy. In fact, the full-bodied red wines are what people most associate with the region; that, along with classic dishes like boeuf bourguignon, a hearty beef dish. But the wine culture and gastronomy is even more nuanced than that. While guests of the region will still find classic and hearty dishes aplenty — like escargots à la Bourgogne and coq au vin — they’ll also find a cuisine rich in seasonal and local meats and produce.

That’s because there’s Charolais cattle aplenty in the region, hence the variety and abundance of beef dishes, along with Bourg-en-Bresse chickens, boar, venison, and quails. But the culinary traveler will find fish here too, along with ingredients from local artisans, such as cheeses, terrines, and pates. In other words? Burgundy is a foodie heaven.

During this cooking-intensive trip to this beautiful land of vineyards and pastures, stay in a lovely 4-star chateau located a short distance from the historic town of Macon (which is just about an hour and half, via train, from Paris). The owner and his daughter, the manager, will welcome you to this lovely 17th-century property, surrounded by vineyards.
