This week we’re interviewing Makenna Johnston from La Pitchoune, a new cooking school and retreat based in Julia Childs’ summer home. We’ll be discussing how the project came to life and some of the best foodie destinations around the world.

La Pitchoune was the summer home of Julia and Paul Child for nearly 3 decades. Purchased by Kathie Alex in the 1990’s, and turned into a cooking school, La Pitchoune will return to her roots in 2016 as a center for culture, food, and community.
