Culinary Journey to Venice and the Veneto, Italy

Imagine sailing down the Grand Canal in Venice heading towards Piazza San Marco! Venice is one of my favorite cities in the world. Wander the alleys, grab a glass of prosecco, maybe a little Venetian crostini topped with tuna and capers or stroll the Rialto Market.

Culinary Journey to Provence, France

Blanche Fleur is such a beautiful location and it really does feel like staying at my home-away-from-home and the estate has so many beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces that we can use to eat all of the delicious food we prepare in our cooking classes.
