Regular readers of this blog know that Cornichon wears more than one hat, none more happily than director of wine tours for The International Vineyard. TIV was launched (after France In Your Glass closed) by Karen Herbst as a sibling to her successful collection of cooking school vacations, The International Kitchen. And this week in Chicago, at a meeting of American tour operators specializing in travel to France, Maison de la France (the French Government Tourist Office) recognized TIK as the best provider of special-interest programs. Our "big sister" makes good. Bravo, Karen!
