Retreat to SW France

Guild member and anthropologist Bee Farrell recently relocated to SW France and is hosting residential retreats for four to six guests in her 400-year-old house in the riverside village of Verteuil-sur-Charente. The surrounding countryside is good walking country, and the itinerary invites guests to explore the region’s traditional recipes and meet local food experts, including a forager, sommelier, miller, baker, cheesemaker and oyster farmer. Bee is offering a 20% discount per person for Guild members. For dates, prices and more information, contact
