Discover the Rhône in Five Recipes


Travelling through France is never complete without sampling the culinary delights on offer throughout the country. Fine dining, finer wines and a cheese selection of which dreams are made, few cuisines around the world can better that of the French. And the route from Lyon, regarded as the culinary capital of the world, following the Rhône down through the Provence region and to the Mediterranean, is perhaps France’s most treasured foodie path.

With beautiful wine regions flanking the winding course of the river and small Provençal towns preserving fiercely-guarded secret recipes, the Rhône region offers a foodie tour into the heart and belly of France. Few places in the world can boast so much heritage and forward-thinking culinary ambition in such abundance as this beautiful stretch of the continent.

At Emerald Cruises, we know that for many of our guests, food plays a central role in the holiday experience, and we truly believe you can learn a lot about new cultures from their favoured fare. So, to provide everyone with a taste of one of our favourite river cruise routes through Europe, we are taking a tour through the Rhône in five delicious recipes.
