To go deeper into understanding French Food and Culture, we organize residential cooking holidays in various regions of France. These experiences are held in great locations where you will have a nice bedroom with en-suite bathroom. We rent those places just for you and us – with a maximum of 8 participants.
During the week you will cook every day with Le Foodist Chefs, and one day with a Local Chef. But you will also get to discover very interesting local vineyards and wine growers, meet local producers of iconic products, explore local markets and eat at the best tables at the region.
We have done all the work on finding those great locations, so these residential holidays are all inclusive, from the moment we pick you up at the nearest train station to the moment we bring you back. We truly believe this is a fantastic way to Discover French Culture through Food.
I enjoyed this vacation in Provence so much, I decided to come back!

Discovering culture through Food is what we want to do when we travel. So we have developed all our experiences with that simple idea in mind: ensure that you learn both about the topic at hand, but also about French culture in the process. So in our food tours, we will talk about the history of various aspects of French food, in our cooking class about how certain dishes became so important in our culture. During our wine tastings, we will explore the regional differences in French culture. And, a regional residential holiday is an opportunity to deep dive French food culture to its core and foundation: the regional gastronomies, and the concept of terroir.
