With the winter solstice approaching, it’s a wonderful time to experience Miraval’s culinary workshops, crafted by Miraval Chefs and designed to be healthful without sacrificing flavor and texture.

Because living well isn’t just about eating the right food, it is also about community and conviviality — sharing it with people you care about.
