Cooking classes with world-class instructors and chefs:

We recruit highly skilled chefs to teach our cooking classes, and they share with you not only their cooking techniques but also their own personal food-culture experiences. Our chefs have a passion for leading our cooking classes; they are motivated, patient, and dedicated to helping you get the most out of your culinary tour.

Knowledgeable culinary tour guides give unparalleled insider access:

Our experienced, local tour guides are passionate and knowledgeable about their countries. Giving you insider access to unique experiences is a key part of each culinary vacation. Our guides will ensure that you enjoy the very best food, markets, restaurants and cultural experiences on our small group culinary tours.

Unique, well-paced culinary tour itineraries: 

We design our culinary tours and cooking vacations to ensure that you enjoy the cultural and culinary highlights of a region while also experiencing those special travel moments you might never find on your own. Feel free to use our guides and chefs as little or as much as you like – it’s your vacation! You can do your own thing in the evening or explore our culinary destinations with the group.
