1. France -  Oh, France. Rich history, rich culture, and rich food ! If you needed a good reason to want to go to Provence, then check out Culinary and Art Adventure in Provence with Chef Philippe Gion.

Olive Odyssey …


I am organizing a National Geographic expedition exploring the history of the olive tree. We are highlighting some of the traditional French cuisine that uses olive oil, and we would like to interview and film chef Philippe Gion. […]

Thank you for creating such a wonderful Provencal experience for us! We will always remember that cooking show and the fantastic meal. Fondly, (Sept.2011)
