Study Abroad:
Italy | France

Food and Wine of Italy

Do you have an interest in Italian and French gastronomy? Imagine being able to create a delicious meal of traditional Tuscan or Lyonnaise recipes … serving wine using traditional French techniques … experiencing innovations in coffee and tea service, cuisine, mixology and winery practices. Now in its seventh year, the Food, Wine and Culture program has been expanded to include both Italy and France. This program will enable you to gain this expertise at the Apicius International School of Hospitality (Florence, Italy) and the Institute Paul Bocuse (Lyon, France).

“Studying abroad in Italy was the opportunity of a lifetime. We not only learned about Italian food and wine in the classroom, but we were able to travel and experience true Italian culture firsthand.”

— Sarah Montgomery, hospitality business management, 2014
