Pitcher and Powell for a Culinary Tour in Provence

Why is Provence a perfect place for a culinary escape?

Tasha Powell: Because of French culture and its respect for food, ingredients and the overall dining experience. This beautiful region is known for fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese, and wine.  With an emphasis on sun-ripened vegetables, seafood, fresh herbs and olive oil in many dishes, traditional Provencal cuisine combines bold flavours and simple ingredients for such classic dishes as Bouillabaisse (fish stew), Ratatouille (stewed vegetables including eggplant, zucchini, onions) and Daube (traditional beef stew). Typical vegetables in Provencal dishes include peppers, mushrooms, artichokes, potatoes, zucchini, beans and squashes.  Other ingredients include citrus, peaches, cherries, melons, apricots, quinces, figs, pine nuts, almonds and hazelnuts.

What is your favourite season in Provence?

Barbara Pitcher: I believe fall is one of the best times to visit Provence. The tourist crowds have died down, and the real character of Provence is accessible. The temperature is still warm but no longer hot, and we can reap the benefits of the late summer and fall harvest of local foods and wines. The markets are bursting with flavours and colours.

Culinary Tour in Provence

Arrive at Aéroport Marseille-Provence, and a Pitcher and Powell representative will be waiting with transportation to Château Saint-Pierre de Mejans and your accommodation for the week in a 12th-century château. This beautiful property in the Luberon is surrounded by nature and grapevines; it’s a working vineyard. The Pitcher and Powell itinerary includes wine tastings, visits to local markets, cooking workshops and yoga sessions. During the week, there are excursions to Les Baux de Provence in the Alpilles and a chance to see the contemporary art at Château La Coste Winery. Don’t worry. There is also plenty of time to relax by the heated pool and hike the trails near the vineyard.
