Archives : Barge Esperance
Why do I like the barge Esperance so much? As well as totally admiring and respecting the owner, Captain Mathias Gilles, it is because of the rave reviews I get when my clients return from their barge trips with comments such as:
“The excursions were wonderful! A little bit of something different every day. And our guide Marion was the best!” From Monica V, September 2013
“We loved the barge and crew! The crew was totally professional and at the same time totally engaging.” From David A, October 2013
But the comment I hear the most is:
“We loved the barge and crew. We are convinced that Mathias is the best barge captain anywhere on the planet, and Joe’s cooking was to die for. We did not expect the food to be as superb as it was.” From Judy D, September 2013
And so it is my pleasure to highlight the chef, cuisine and wines of this very special barge cruise on Esperance.
One of Captain Mathias’ many talents is the table setting for each dining experience. His sense of style and joie de vivre are impeccable.
Barge Cooking Demonstrations
Chef Joe is not only a fabulous chef, his personality is warm and welcoming. Cooking demonstrations? You bet! The open kitchen on Esperance invites guests’ participation and conversation.
Canal barge cruising and local wine pairing
Local wines from Languedoc abound in grape varieties and blends making them very diverse and interesting. Pairing with the food is an art practiced on board Esperance.
