    This dynamic, hands-on cooking class features a menu inspired by M.F.K. Fisher's time in Provence, 1970. Guests will make food for the evening and hear the author discuss his book, Provence, 1970: M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste. Luke Barr, grand-nephew of M.F.K. Fisher, tells the story of the memorable weeks in the hills of Provence with culinary greats M.F.K. Fisher and her friends, Julia Child and James Beard. Through a combination of journals, never-before revealed letters, research and interviews comes a story that shares conversations, meals, debates and philosophies from culinary legends who influenced food in America. Luke Barr is an editor at Travel + Leisure.
