Best Passport to Provence

Georgeanne Brennan's Cooking Classes

Georgeanne Brennan’s Cooking Classes
A passport once was required for Georgeanne Brennan’s cooking classes, held in the palate-pleasing region of Provence. But not anymore: The weakened economy has prompted the award-winning cookbook author to move operations stateside, to her bucolic farm in Winters. With a huge garden and an abundance of fruit trees and grape vines—plus a lovely farm kitchen, surrounded by lemon trees—it certainly feels like the French countryside, but all you need is a set of wheels to get there. Classes are held monthly, on weekends.
