Here at Onward Travel we love to partner with businesses and organizations that share our interests and passions. We grew up working at our family’s cooking school so we’re absolutely delighted to announce a culinary tour in partnership with The Chopping Block, a Chicago-based recreational cooking school. The Chopping Block offers lots of interesting programming at their two locations and they’re passionate about teaching folks to cook. Last year The Chopping Block’s wine educator moved to Nice and this fall she will host a food and wine tour in Provence!
Our fall culinary adventure in France, The Art of Living in Provence, is open to any and all travelers who would like to savor Provence. The tour is co-hosted by The Chopping Block’s Sommelier and Nice-resident Viktorija Todorovska. Viktorija wrote a beautiful book about Provence and is excited to introduce a small group of folks to her corner of the world. Spend three nights in Nice, two nights at a country retreat in the mountains, and two nights in quaint and lovely Aix-en-Provence.
This weeklong tour, September 15—22, 2017, will highlight the connection between food and wine in Provence. Learn how professionals taste and assess wines. Chat with winemakers and learn about the process of making world-renown rosé. Take your passion for food and wine a step further with this immersion in Provençal cuisine. But of course, this is vacation, and we’ll be sunning ourselves on the beach, playing a leisurely game of péntaque, admiring the fountains in charming Aix-en-Provence, and laughing into the evening with new friends.
Provence is home to well-known, healthful Mediterranean cuisine. We’ll enjoy hands-on cooking classes, market visits, and special tastings. Food is art in France, and in Provence… the beautiful ingredients are the stars. From sunny Nice, to the hills of Forcalquier, to charming Aix-in-Provence, we’ll wine and dine, cook and create, and experience picturesque Provence… View all the details here.
