Foodie vacations for couples

For many travelers, indulging in a country’s cuisine is a real draw to a destination, from a rustic Tuscan pasta dish to a plate of delicate sashimi in Japan. We can make this culinary journey a real focus on your trip, arranging private cookery classes with a top chef, or a private picnic beside a quiet river, or a guided visit to a produce market where only the locals go.

Sampling a typical Argentine steak cooked on the fire or eating a mango that’s just been plucked from the tree are some of travel’s great pleasures. Embrace your inner foodie on a culinary adventure, whether it’s spending a day learning how the humble cocoa bean becomes a chocolate bar, or putting your skills to the test at a Thai cookery school. Spend the morning visiting a local market with your hotel’s chef and then watch him prepare an unforgettable lunch or enjoy a romantic picnic in the most surprising of locations. We also have the inside knowledge on the top new restaurants and we know great food isn’t just about Michelin starred restaurants.
