the pursuit and enjoyment of unique and memorable food and drink experiences,
both far and near
pursuit & enjoyment
The best cooking classes, food tours and culinary vacations take you on a delicious journey involving all of your senses: sight, smell, taste, touch and sound. They also give you the opportunity to break bread with fellow foodies, artisans, chefs, farmers and producers from around the world.
unique & memorable
Authenticity is one of the essential ingredients for memorable food travel. It’s all about discovering the special characteristics, the terroir, of a local cuisine. Whether you’re exploring a country, region, city or neighbourhood, we know you’re searching to find a sense of place through food.
food & drink
Although the phrase culinary travel sounds a bit pretentious, it doesn’t necessarily mean gourmet or expensive. It’s just as likely to involve a wide-eyed walk through a lively food market as it is an unforgettable meal at a Michelin star restaurant.
far & near
Most of us can’t spend every day pursuing amazing food experiences in exotic locations around the world (as much as we might like to) but head over to Chinatown for some dim sum or visit your local farmer’s market, and guess what? You’re still a culinary traveller.
