Times Journeys trip to Provence: “Flavors of Provence”  - New York Times Expert Lecturer

In a week that celebrates the world-renown gastronomy of Provence, go behind the scenes and have access to unique experiences. From a Michelin-starred restaurant to a home-cooked meal, this journey is packed with the flavors of Provence. This combination of gentle hikes and Provencal cuisine will literally take you off the beaten path. This is a trip you won’t find in any guidebook.

Van Gogh was drawn by the color and light of Provence, and everyone is drawn by the scents and tastes: wafts of thyme and rosemary as you stroll the hills, the lavender in the fields. Peruse the market in Avignon and get a chef to cook some of its produce on the spot. Sample regional specialties and learn to cook them. And that goat cheese, drizzled with olive oil, accompanied by a glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape? Go to the goat farm and visit the olive mill and the winery, all with expert detail from the producers themselves.
