Gain a historic overview and contemporary understanding of how the “Farm to Table” movement is deeply ingrained in French food culture. On this one week study tour program in France, you'll take classes given by your guide and Dr. Francis Mathieu of Southwestern University and experience what you are learning through visits to artisanal wine and cheese producers, meals in both simple and Michelin star restaurants on top of visits to historic culinary sites. Over the course of the week, you will gain an understanding of the complex layers of factors contributing to the sustainability of small-scale food production in France. You'll be studying topics related to the sustainability of small-scale production and the role of haute cuisine in the success of the French version of the “local food movement” (terroir). You will trace wine and cheese products from the soil of the vineyards and pastures where the raw ingredients are produced through the processing methods to the preservation techniques where you will learn to taste the nuanced differences of aroma in nonindustrial production before finally eating and drinking these same products in the fine Michelin star restaurants where they are elevated to luxury levels.
