Gastronomy is the study of food and culture. This intimate immersion program is carefully designed to unveil the culture, cuisine, history, tradition and terroir of France. We will be visiting Michelin star chefs and various traditional French food and beverage producers including Valrhona chocolate and Chateau Neuf du Pape winery. In addition to kitchens, hotels and wineries, students will be visiting historic towns and cultural landmarks. The main objective of this course is to provide students with a meaningful understanding of how the French people weave their daily food/beverage connections into their everyday life. The lessons from this program will give students the framework to better understand how to make connections with our culture and apply them to their future leadership roles.
