Chocolate and Cheese Adventure
Famed food writer and baker David Lebovitz takes a lucky few on a gastronomic trip of a lifetime.
You can live vicariously through David Lebovitz reading his much-lauded blog about all things food in Paris. But savoring a meal and touring the favorite spots of this former Chez Panisse chef and author of “The Sweet Life in Paris” happens just once a year. This opportunity of a lifetime sells out quickly so be ready to sign up once next year’s dates are announced.
What to Expect:
Arrive in Paris and the first thing you’ll do is sip Champagne with David. That’d be enough for us, but no, there’s much more. Taste sweets from the hands of the chocolatiers, gain exclusive access to producers, laboratories, and masters of craft whose doors are not open to the pubic. Throughout the trip you’ll experience guided walking tours of neighborhoods, outdoor markets and get to shop at David’s favorite Meccas. You’ll learn about astounding wines from family-run vineyards and indulge in charcuterie, pastries, and local specialties. Did we mention the Swiss mountain cheeses? And of course, there will be plenty of lunches and dinners at authentic bistros, cafés and restaurants.
Included in the price (see website) are 6 nights at a 4-star hotel in Paris and at the fabulous Lausanne Palace and Spa in Switzerland. Most meals with wine are included with the trip as well as in-city transport, guided tastings, a cooking class, walking tours, and all breakfasts.
