    Global Cuisines and Cultures of France

    Allons en France! The oldest cookbooks in France date back to the 14th century. Since then, French cuisine has evolved to become one of the most revered and popular in the world. During your three-week journey, you’ll learn about French food and wine, culture, history, and terroir while traveling through the Champagne, Normandy, and Alsace regions. In addition, you’ll stay with local families, visit historic sites, take French cooking classes, and visit local markets and wineries.

    Other highlights:

    • Study with French chefs to learn about specific spices and seasonings used in French cuisine.
    • Sample wine alongside local vintners as they explain food pairings and how their wines are created.
    • Visit renowned cheese and Champagne producers.
  • “Almost every profession has an outstanding training ground. The military has West Point, music has Juilliard, and the culinary arts has the Institute.”
