"Experience Autumn in Provence," with good company, great food, and a leisurely lunch with a view of our fall vineyard. October's culinary classes are lovingly adapted recipes from Jocelyne Sibuet, an author on French country living and designer of 7 boutique hotels with her husband, Jean-Luis. One of these properties is La Bastide de Marie (a former 18th-century farmhouse, now a charming boutique hotel), complete with vineyards, herb gardens, and olive and lemon trees, in Menerbes, a hilltop town in the Luberon region of Provence. I had the opportunity to visit this special property in 2008. Lunch Menu: Oven-Roasted Tomato & Fresh Thyme Tartines, RivaRose Brut, Eggplant Tian with Tomato Coulis and Herb-Marinated Goat Cheese, Beef Daube with Egg Noodles, Domaine de Manion Rhone Wine, and Plum-Almond Crumble with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream.
