Since then, I’ve gone on to become a certified Culinary Travel Professional (CCTP), and I’ve had some amazing food experiences all over the world, like:

  • Cooking with a Contessa in a beautiful Italian palazzo.
  • Judging a National food competition – the Canadian Culinary Championships.
  • Eating cicchetti with local fishermen in a bacaro in Venice.
  • Taking cooking classes at the same school where Julia Child perfected her craft.
  • Hunting for truffles in the Tuscan countryside.
  • Using a molcajete in the Baja to make regional salsas.
  • Devouring insanely creative tapas at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Spain.
  • Being accepted as a member of the World Gourmet Society.
  • And so much more!

Now I’m on a mission to help you do the same. No more fast food chains for me – or you! My meticulously planned self-guided food walks and mini travel guides are designed to help you experience the highlights of a local cuisine in a short period of time – whether you’re on a stopover, layover, pre or post cruise extension, shore excursion, or weekend getaway.

I also share recipes collected on my travels, along with my best travel tips, of the moment travel news, inspiring stories, interviews, and gorgeous galleries.


Laura, I love your blog. The content, layout, recipes and travel articles are beautiful and useful. You have a way of sifting through information and offering the most essential culinary travel tips. Your site is useful and fun to read. I am looking forward to going on one of your self-guided food tours soon.

I took the Rome food tour in October 2017. So glad I did! I visited places that I would never have known about. The pasticceria was a highlight (I love tiramisu), as was the rooftop bar. The tour instructions were very clear, and I liked how I was able to go at my own pace, and not be rushed. I timed it so that I ended up at the rooftop bar for a spectacular sunset. .

Great review, thanks! And loved the breakdown so we know what to expect on our visit there in June. Managed to get a booking thanks to the tips as well.
