We begin in Nouvelle Aquitaine, in the Sth West region of France, stretching from the Gironde Estuary to the Pyrenees and the Spanish border. A region of châteaux, charming towns, vineyards and seaside resorts. Dine on Confit de canard, on fresh baguette, Pintxos Tortilla Pasatas and a desert of Canelés. Wash it down with a Bordeaux red.

In our second week we journey to Brittany, the hearty and historic peninsula to the Northwest of France where a Celtic influence remains. Enjoy Brittany’s infamous crèpes, both sweet and savoury, with a glass of cider.

Welcome to the South of France, to Occitany. Breathtaking landscapes and rich traditions with a convivial air. We try Toulouse sausage, wrapped in a delicate feuilleté with Dijon mustard and a garlic tart from Lomagne.

The Ile-de-France, home to the city of Paris, is one of the world’s classic sites of romance and culture. No visit is complete without a glass of Champagne and Madeleine’s (ala Marcel Proust) Mini Ratatouille quiches and Brie, Apple and Honey baguette round out our delicious season of French Immersion.

Learn, Eat, Laugh with Rendezvous en Français, at Bookoccino.
