Synopsis: Cheese Exploration through France
Casting: A small group of cheese enthusiasts
An American agency contacted us to create a cross-regional luxury gourmet tour in France for their clients with a strong focus on cheese. They were all foodies and expected to taste as many cheeses’varieties as possible! They wanted to start with Paris and nearby areas renowned for cheeses. We then suggested them to go to Lyon for its outstanding gastronomy and wine culture, and finally to have a proper Auvergne food tour: a lesser known area offering stunning landscapes and some of the best cheeses of the country. The “Cheese Route” there, mostly renowned by locals, also caught their attention. We searched for weeks for the most authentic farms and cheese producers in order to offer a complete gastronomic and cultural experience for the most irresistible trip!
