Dream Vacation: Provence!
June 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Dream Vacation Series!
First impressions of Provence are no different than third, fourth or even fiftieth impressions. It is everything everyone raves about. Fields of lavender, old olive trees gnarled by the decades or even centuries of sunshine, vineyards spreading out over the hills, cottages dotting the countryside spilling over with geraniums, roses and lilies. You can go into the famous towns like Aix-en-Provence and enjoy the bustle or wander out to the little villages like Jouques and enjoy the bakery that has been there for generations. Every scene is like a painting by Van Gogh or Cezanne. It is a place to be savored by all the senses. The warm dry air blowing through your hair, the smells of flowers and herbs, the peaceful call of birds and buzz of insects and perhaps most decadent, the taste of the food and wine.
The flavors of Provence are seductive. The food – like bourride or anchoiade, onion tarts or even just baguettes with cheese – is somehow magically transformed into a transcendent experience. So you can only imagine the effect on their wines. That delicate salmon colored rosé, the rare red or white, and if you are lucky, that wonderful sparkling wine.
In this class, we will endeavor to capture that magic in the also wonderful Harvard Square.
