Food and Wine
Lunch onboard the ‘Who Knows’ is a gastronomic pleasure...Burgundy is world renowned for gourmet French
cuisine and grand wines. A vacation aboard the ‘Who Knows’ will allow you to experience the very best offered
by Burgundy and France.
Everyday fresh bread, croissants and other pastries are delivered to the boat or collected from local boulangeries
(bakeries) along the route. A highlight of each day will be the lavish meals you will indulge in both on
board and ashore, allowing you to taste and experience France first hand. Dawn and Jason have refined
their itinerary based upon their barging experience and customer feedback and food is always a major consideration
when booking a fully-inclusive or semi inclusive cruise week.
So with this in mind they have devised
an itinerary where you dine ashore at certain times during the week. Two reasons for this - first, you
will experience the fun and pleasure of dinning in French restaurants, and second - there is a limit to how
many five course rich meals one can consume in a week! Hence dinning out allows you to choose to eat as
much—or as little—as you like. Dawn and Jason also dine with guests on two occasions during the week;
once at a regional workers lunch and on another occasion in an haute cuisine restaurant where you can languish
in all the elegance of luxurious French fine dining. And of course, no cruise would be perfect without
the ‘Captains Dinner’...
With food... must come wine. Drawing from France’s extensive and varied selection of wines, your cruise
will offer you the perfect opportunity to sample, compare and enjoy the excellent wines that represent Burgundy
and many of France’s wine producing districts. As wine enthusiasts, Dawn and Jason love to show
their guests the vineyards and they have met quite a few interesting characters in their time in Burgundy.
Jason has also found the best vineyards and wine houses where there is no obligation to buy, so you can relax
in the knowledge that if you just want to taste the wines that’s all you have to do…
