The twosome are pairing up for an epic culinary trip hosted by Insight Vacations in the Loire Valley this September, where guests will eat and drink their way through one of the most gorgeous regions in France. (And yes, the itinerary actually includes a trip to a mushroom museum.) Click through the gallery to see the 10 french food myths that can finally be debunked, once and for all.
