If you missed out on the April dates for our trip to France, take heart: New dates have been added for June.
We’ll be traveling to Paris and Lyon June 23 through 30. Chef Kevin Fonzo and I will lead the tour, which is being curated by Art in Voyage — Beyond Travel. We have a lot planned — even if you’re a frequent visitor to France, you’ll love some of the “insider” things we have planned, including an exclusive dinner at Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower, a day-trip to Champagne country, and a cooking class using the ingredients gathered from a local market. In Lyon, we’ll pay our respects to Paul Bocuse by visiting his famous restaurant.
I’m especially looking forward to showing you some of my favorite restaurants (they’re not all Michelin-starred, some are hidden neighborhood gems) and taking you on a tour of one of the area’s market streets to gather a picnic feast, like I did last month (photo above).
