French cuisine has no precise definition — its ingredients and flavors are as varied and unique as the regions that have birthed them — which is exactly why France remains the true gastronome’s first love.
This premium 10 day gastro-centric excursion takes you on a Grand Tour of the culinary delights of France, from the restaurants of Paris, to the wine region of Burgundy, to Lyon, the ancestral home of French cuisine, and the gastronomic capital of the world.
