I would like to sign up for a tour somewhere in France that has a emphasis on food, cooking, markets, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions?

The ultimate experience would be a week with Patricia Wells in Provence or Paris! These programs book up well in advance and are also pricey. The Provence week (Sunday dinner through Friday lunch) is $5,000, excluding lodging.
I've also heard very good things about Kate Hill's program in Gascony.

Were you wanting to focus on one region or move around a bit? The cuisine in France is so regionally-oriented, I think most tours like this are based in just one region. I'd love to hear what you decide to do.

Thanks everyone! Please keep this thread going. I'm still in search of great ideas for a month of food in France. Looks like it may be either a very hot August/September or a cold November trip...

Wow Dana! That would be so much fun. You know the reason I chose to come live in Italy and not France is because I LOVE French pastures and I don't like Italian pastries or desserts. It's just self preservation . . .
