France and food go hand-in-hand which is why we put a particular emphasis on the combination of cruising with gourmet food. Previous guests have loved our state-of-the-art open galley – perfect for food lovers, allowing you to watch our chef at work both before and during the meal.
For real enthusiasts, a trip to the market with your knowledgeable guide can be the highlight of your trip as it is the perfect opportunity to select some beautiful produce to bring back to the barge and then enjoy the cooking demonstration presented by your talented chef as yet another gastronomic creation takes shape.
Highly trained in professional culinary schools and top end restaurants, our onboard chefs are on hand to cater to any wishes. They particularly enjoy working in an open galley as this offers another level of interaction where they can share their passion for gourmet food.
Our hostesses will help you discover your inner wine-buff by pairing to each dish the perfect bottle. With a short and informative presentation of the selected wines throughout the week, we take you on a voyage of discovery of France’s terroirs with particular emphasis on the region you will be cruising.
We also believe no trip to France is complete without sampling cuisine in a local restaurant which is why we include a lunch ashore within the week’s cruise.
