Tour de France from the comfort of your home!
Food is the most revealing topic of culture.
France is well-known throughout the world for its terroir and its infinite culinary traditions, passed down from generation to generation.
From the famous “champagne” to the little-known “poutargue”, from the traditional “foie-gras” to the original honey-candy, this workshop not only celebrates the food and the wines, it is a journey into the historic, geographic, and ethnic origins and influences of emblematic French foods and regions.
Through local products and gastronomic traditions, we will explore each region to understand its nuances.
Join us with a glass of wine et prenons l'apéro ensemble and let's discover France from the comfort of your home!
2h apéritif in English.
