We love the entire concept behind this cooking workshop in Burgundy: American mother-daughter duo Marjorie Taylor and Kendall Smith Franchini had a love for French cuisine and communal gatherings, so they decided to combine the two and create a space to learn in the French countryside. The pair began by offering market tours, visits to wineries, and cooking classes–all in English–for the curious tourist or local. The idea took off and since its creation in 2008, the pair opened a storefront, which houses The French Larder, where they sell their favorite wines and provisions. You can rent their quaint pied-à-terre, a picturesque two-bedroom flat close to the village’s markets and restaurants. After dining with family, meeting local purveyors, and building confidence in cooking French cuisine, the experience will leave you feeling truly part of something. Photo: Anson Smart
