It’s time to plan your next trip to France! Join us for a tasty and interactive (yet virtual!) workshop that will inspire your next trip to Provence.
Traci will take you on a sensory journey through “les Bouches-du-Rhône” and help you plan your perfect trip to Provence by exploring hidden gems and sampling specialties thanks to our “panier gourmand” (gourmet basket) filled with treats imported from Provence. A former French teacher and French boutique owner, Traci became fascinated by all things French at a very young age – mostly thanks to her French grandparents. Through her many stays in France, she developed an appreciation for the love and pride that the French artisans have in making their products. With French Detours, Traci wants to invite you to come along with her to the less-known areas of France and meet the artisans who make each region so unique.
“When I travel, I want to enjoy all of the local flavors, then stuff my suitcase with artisan treasures so I can attempt to recreate that joie de vivre back at home. While it is easy to find the tourist attractions, these regional specialties and authentic experiences can be harder to find.” – Traci Parent
$50 (includes a Basket full of Provençal goodies of a $50 value) OR $20 (workshop only, without basket)
*The “panier gourmand” will be available for pick up at Coucou Minneapolis. A local delivery option might be available for a fee, upon request. It will include a variety of specialties from Provence (soap, olive oil, calissons, and more).
**Open to all levels of French. The workshop will be conducted in English with some important key phrases and vocabulary in French.
