The art of fine wine and food pairing has been practiced and perfected over the centuries in many countries all over the world. Over time, the ancient pairing masters shared their techniques across these country borders and the craft has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. Understanding the practice and respecting the fine details of cross-cultural flavor pairing is an essential and noteworthy skill in today’s industry.

Seize the opportunity to learn from some of these masters in France; where this tradition has a deep-rooted history and the practice has evolved into a respected science. Gain authentic international experience as you learn to match the wine and food of France with the U.S. from the French and American masters themselves. Learn how to use flavors, textures, and components present in food and wine as complimenting strategies. Dive deeper into the menu planning, food preparation, cooking methods, and wine tasting etiquette with food in a formal dining environment.

Location:  Bordeaux and Paris, France

Known for its advanced taste in food wine and fashion, Paris offers many attractions worth a visit. As well as being the home of Romance and art, Paris is home to monuments of many sorts such as museums, historic buildings, statues, churches, art galleries, fountains, historic houses, and traditional Parisian cultural sites. As you journey down the cobblestone streets with a baguette in your arms and the aftertaste of some French wine lingering on your tongue, witness all the timeless love and beauty only Paris can offer.
