Project Description

Provence

9 – 11 AUGUST 2019

The Luberon Valley, medieval villages and dinner from Vladimir Mukhin

Getting to know Provence in three days is an ambitious but achievable goal, when you have experts to guide you throughout the journey – such as an experienced guide, an art critic and a famous chef. We will be presented with an art collection from France’s largest private collection of contemporary art, Foundation Maeght, followed by a walk across the cobbled streets of XIII century villages, before taking cover under a canopy of plane trees, dating back to the times of Louis XIV. From the terraces, we will be able to enjoy the views of the Sainte-Victoire mountain and the Aix-en-Provence square, the homelands of Cezanne and Zola, as well as compare how the local chef Xavier Mathieu and Vladimir Mukhin interpret the traditions of the Provencal cuisine.

Provence is a land of lavender fields, plane trees and medieval villages. Provence’s vineyards, planted by the Phoenicians, have been honoured by Van Gogh, Cezanne and Picasso. Provencal cuisine – a distant relative of the Ligurian – is a very special phenomenon in French gastronomy.
