Pitcher & Powell Join Up to Create Pitcher & Powell International Culinary and Cultural Adventures

Appealing to the growing number of women who like to embark on culinary adventures while globe-hopping, Barbara Pitcher, a well-known artist based in Provence, France teams with Tasha Powell, a classically trained chef and food stylist, to create travel programs that combine culinary adventure with foreign travel.

Adopting the philosophy of slow travel, where travelers integrate into the culture, customs and especially foods of a destination while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow adventurers, Pitcher and Powell are creating unique travel and culinary experiences for wanderlust cooking aficionados! The first destinations of the Pitcher & Powell agenda are the incredibly beautiful locations of Parry Sound, Canada and Provence, France.  These culinary and cultural adventures will include such activities as wine tours, hikes, walks, canoe rides, local market tours, wine and food pairings and most of all, cooking lessons to improve your skills and provide exposure to different types of cuisines.


Barbara and Tasha met in 2014 when a mutual friend asked if she could be added to the guest list for one of Barbara’s magnificent dinner parties at her beautiful home in Eguilles, Aix-en-Provence. Tasha, who had just arrived in France 24 hours earlier, was so impressed with Barbara’s effortless cooking style of French rustic meets urban sophisticate that they hit it off immediately, and the beginning of a new partnership was born!


Tasha lives in Los Angeles and works as a food stylist.  She works  with celebrity chefs, cooking and styling for cookbook authors and providing publicity for these professionals through Satellite Media Tours and other broadcast channels.

Barbara Pitcher is a well-known Canadian-Italian artist presently living in Provence, France.

Earlier, after spending several years in the fashion business, she launched a twenty-five year career in worldwide event planning, where her formidable language skills (English, French, Italian, and some Spanish and German) and her passion for travel served her well.

Barbara’s most enduring passion is food.  She is a self-trained, effortless cook and entertainer, as her guests will attest to.

Pitcher & Powell International Culinary and Cultural Adventures first excursion will be to Parry Sound from September 24th -30th, 2016, 7 days/6 nights.

And also on the schedule is a week in Provence, France from October 16th - 22nd, 7 days/6 nights.
