Turn winter doldrums into delights by treating yourself (and perhaps your spouse or a friend) to 7 days and 6 nights at the Auberge de la Truffe in the Dordogne for a culinary adventure at the height of the foie gras and truffles season. Chef Pierre Corre, a native of the region, will take us on a tour of the renowned Saturday Périgueux foie gras market. He’ll teach us the secrets of preparing all the gastronomic treasures of Périgord in hands-on cooking classes. Classes will be limited to 8 participants, with simultaneous translation provided.
Tours and excursions will include a truffle hunt (complete with guide and pig), a visit to the Truffle Museum, a tour of a superb vineyard in Bergerac with wine-tasting and lunch, a visit to the world-famous prehistoric cave paintings of Font de Gaume, a tour of the splendid Château de Puymartin, and meals at other fine area restaurants.
Spouses and guests who are passionate about the tasting but not the preparation of these delicacies are welcome to join us on the excursions and at the table as we feast on our creations.
