This full day excursion was especially created for lovers of (preparing) fine french food, plus for thos who like to know more about pairing wine and food. In the morning, we set out for a trip into the Mâconnais area and take a beautiful scenic drive through the stone-built villages, learning along the way about the geology, history and wines of these lovely hills and valleys.
When we stop, we will enjoy a culinary peak experience together, with a 3-hour cooking class taught by a French chef. You’ll be learning how to prepare your typically Burgundian gourmet three course meal, that will of course be enjoyed ‘toot sweet’ for lunch, and will involve food and wine pairing.
After lunch we get back into the van for a discovery of the famous Solutré Rock (that gave its name to a geological period) amidst the even more famous Pouilly Fuissé vineyards. Here, we meet up with a winemaker to taste a couple of his excellent Chardonnay wines.
