Today on Join Us in France we visit Southern Burgundy, specifically the department of Saône et Loire (71) with Jeff Steiner of Americans in France.
This is an area that French people would qualify as “la France profonde” meaning that it is rural, has centuries of history during which strong culinary and viniculture traditions developed. Is it worth a visit? You decide as we discuss all the highlights in this area. I can’t wait to visit myself!
