In the center of France, the Loire Valley is home to some of the most famous Chateaux in all of France! This prized location wasn’t picked at random for building these magnificent country homes and palaces. The gentle rolling hills of this picturesque countryside was valued for its abundant landscape that overflowed with delicious wines, goat cheeses, fruits and vegetables, and game, giving it the monikers "Cradle of France" and "Garden of France."

Take a trip to the Loire Valley with Zoe McLaughlin as your guide, to cook and dine as the royals did!
