This program offers a 10-day immersion in French culture and cuisine. It is a wonderful way to experience France! The Institut Paul Bocuse is one of the premier schools in the world for learning French cuisine. The school offers degree programs (bachelor’s through PhD.) in French culinary arts. The week long program at IPB includes lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on food preparation with award-winning French chefs. There are wine tastings, cheese tastings, and numerous food experiences that are simply remarkable! Some of the instructors are winners of the famed French MOF award signifying that they are the very best at their craft.
There is a free weekend in Lyon, after the week at Paul Bocuse. Lyon is the third largest city in France. There are markets, cafes, historical sights, river cruises, etc. French language skills are not required to enjoy many of the attractions in Lyon.
Monday of the second week is spent touring Vairhona Chocolate Factory at La Cite du Chocolat, which is about a one hour bus ride from Lyon. This excursion is included as part of the course.
