Who’s Up For a #TravelChallenge?
This is the entrance to the classic village of Vaison la Romaine in Provence. My latest installment in the ten day #TravelChallenge heads to the south of France for a visual feast.
You see, the visual magic of this area is easy to see – both in the landscapes and the food as well!
That’s me with the acclaimed Food Writer and Cookbook Author Patricia Wells…my wife Alex and I cooked with her at her home in Vaison la Romaine!
Time for a tasty celebration of day #9 of this social media challenge I was nominated to participate in!
That’s right, when you cook with Patricia, you have to harvest your own food, which is what Alex did before making a terrific Eggplant dish for the class!
Details On This “Travel Challenge!”
The above photo shows just how inspiring our world can be – and how exhilarating it can be to explore it.
Now, about the “travel challenge”: it’s all about visual images – so the challenge is to post a favorite travel picture for 10 days without explanation – something I ws simply unable to do, because I love talking about this stuff.
I love traveling, and I love taking pictures, so this was an easy one for me…
Vaison la Romaine is a beautiful village near Avignon, and Patricia Wells and her husband Walter live there and hold cooking classes as well…in fact, I got to cook on a very special stove: you see, this was given to Patricia by Julia Child herself!
Walter and I whipped up some fresh Chanterelle mushrooms on that stove, and the whole class shared all of the great dishes we made together:
It was one of our favorite trips ever – and if you want more details on the cooking classes, you can see that by clicking on my story here:
While in the area, we explored Chateauneuf-du-Pape – or should I say TASTED:
We tasted great wine, and also drove to Orange, which has a Coliseum that might be as large as Rome’s, but you can go inside and sit in it!
