Multi-Award Winning George Geary Culinary Tours

A Party Recap! by George Geary

This past May (Like the last 25+) I conducted my South of France Tour; Walking in Julia's Steps. I have had many repeats and many that have never even toured Europe. One year, all of the people on the tour made life-changing decisions in their lives after. (New Careers, Moved to new cities, booked more European travel etc.). I had a remarkable quad of ladies that have been friends for years. After they returned from a week of food, fun and touring they decided to make one of the menus. I just was sent the pictures and I thought it would be a nice blog.

In less then 2 weeks I will be joining my team and also the first week of students in the South of France. It is my 30th Season! I was trying to see how many of these corn Timbales would make with my new ramekins that I just got. This year we have two weeks of exciting tours. 

Créme de citron avec des baies

Créme de citron avec des baies

These are little lemon crême desserts for one of the classes. I will probably use local little fraise's (berries) that are so sweet we will not need any sugar.

We also go to a cooking school in the fishing village of Antibes and learn about using local flowers in cooking.

If you are interested in 2019 here are the links for the tour. We are half sold out as of tonight..

I thought you would like to take a look inside part of one of our days on my South of France "Walking in Julia's Steps" Tour. We just had two openings come up for this upcoming spring. email ggeary@aol.com for information.

Cooking you need to use all of your senses. One of our days out in the countryside we use aromas to tantalize or noses. We start the day with an award winning chef who uses flowers in cooking.

Roses

We us the most fragrant rose in the world! From Grasse, France... The Victoria Frolova.. It only blooms from May 1st till the last day of the month.. The roses create Chanel, Hermes and Dior perfumes. The roses are collected from 7am to 10am each morning...

Chef Yves and I have worked together for a number of years. He takes pride in his teaching and food. It is remarkable as to the flavors and textures that you learn about.

Last year Chef Yves was awarded that taking one of his classes was one of the top ten things to do in all of Europe. If you would love to learn.. Come travel with us for our week in France.
