I’ve been looking back through the last few years of travel, sharing comments made by previous ATOP travelers. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know this fabulous group of people.
I knew A Taste of Paris™ would have a personal impact on travelers. Immersing in the French way of life, and exploring this country through its food, alters your point of view. The part of this experience I did not expect, was the gift these incredible travelers would give me in return. Each of their stories is a precious gift. Intimate moments and the meeting of hearts around a table, have become invaluable treasures to me.
“Why did I choose A Taste of Paris/Champagne? Paris has always been on my bucket list. I haven’t been to Paris since I was a young girl.”
“Paris is a beautiful city filled with wonderful culinary experiences as well wonderful historical and cultural venues.”
“And to add Champagne, my favorite drink to the mix was a no brainer. Sipping wonderful French champagne and seeing the beautiful countryside was an incredible experience.”
“Also traveling with a “seasoned” American Chef who was able to escort us and provide her insights of France was a great add!” Zorianna Spies
Thank you Zorianna, you are always so full of life and fun! It was a pleasure to share the experience with you.
Nothing goes better with Champagne than my peppered cashews. Make a quick batch and pop open a bottle of bubbles this weekend!
Travel to France with me in 2019 and make some delicious memories of your own!
