It doesn’t feel like Christmas in Toulouse until I’ve done 3 things – taken an evening wander through the festively-lit, meandering streets of the city center, visited my favorite booth at the marché de Noël for a cup of “vin chaud,” and then grabbed a steaming hot “barquette” of cheesy aligot – and you’ll get to experience all of them during this special virtual experience.
Together we’ll make two of my favorite Christmas market foods: “vin chaud,” hot spiced wine; and “aligot,” a regional dish from Auvergne that is a staple at Christmas markets around France and much-loved in Toulouse as a perfect pairing for Toulouse sausages. We’ll also explore the Toulouse Christmas Market and Christmas lights around Toulouse through photos, talk about what other traditional treats are usually available at the Christmas market, and send you off with suggestions on where to find them or how to make them yourselves to recreate the sights, smells, and tastes of Christmas in France in your own home.
Saturday, December 5; Sunday, December 13, and Saturday, December 19. Also available as a private experience!
