Program Overview

Program Description:

Your Experiment begins and ends in Paris, France’s beautiful and historic capital. You’ll mingle with Parisians in a café for a morning croissant before strolling the streets of Paris to the Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, or the Louvre.  After working up an appetite, taste traditional baguettes, cheeses, and local delicacies, and enjoy a picnic on the Seine’s famous Left Bank or in one of the city’s many parks. Later, you will explore the Montmartre arts district beneath the spires of Sacré-Coeur and dine at quaint cafés that serve regional specialties from throughout the country.

Once completely enamored by the City of Light, you will be ready for more! Prepare to enhance your knowledge of the French language during a week of formal instruction, then put your skills to use during your homestay. There, you will get to know the unique culinary specialties of your homestay region by cooking traditional meals with your host family. This will be good practice for your culinary classes taught in French at the famed Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon.  The Institut Paul Bocuse was founded by Paul Bocuse, one of four Chefs of the

Century and the ambassador of modern or nouvelle cuisine. There, you will learn from professional chefs how to cook French meals and desserts such as crème brûlée or macarons with fresh, sustainable, and high-quality ingredients. During your culinary adventure, you will also visit Lyon’s famed indoor food market, Les Halles, a foodie paradise with countless gourmet delights. Your culinary and linguistic journey concludes with final exploration and reflection in Paris.
