Guided travel to the source of the food

For over 30 years, Zingerman’s has brought the best and most flavorful foods of the world home to America. Now, Zingerman’s can take you to the source!

To have an artisan food maker invite you into their life, share their passion and traditions, then feed you the food you only read about in culinary journals… This is something few people get to experience in their lifetime.

“I’d recommend this trip to anyone. I had a great time…it’s definitely something I could never have experienced if I had just gone on vacation on my own.” –Kelly, Sicily 2009

Come see the world as Zingerman’s does! We go behind the scenes in beautiful regions of the world that have really great traditional food. We visit producers of traditional artisanal foods in their homes and workshops. They and their families share their stories and teach us about the amazing foods that they make, and then feed us!

We pick unique, quality hotels with excellent service and stay for a few days. We aim to minimize travel time and allow enough time and depth to really connect with a place. We balance group time with free time.

Our meals are made of the freshest local, in-season ingredients, prepared in traditional ways for each region we visit. And on every tour we spend some hands-on time in the kitchen, learning how to prepare local dishes, so we can take the knowledge home with us.

We keep our group sizes small – only 8 to 15 guests depending on the tour, and there is always a Zingerman’s tour leader, or two, to make sure of your comfort. Our guests are of a very wide age range, come from all parts of the U.S., and share a love of exploring, of learning about a place and a culture through the food, and, of eating really great food!

Your travel experience with us will deposit you home with an understanding of the historical, cultural, and food uniqueness of the locale, your head full of the images of the people and places you have visited, where you’ve learned about the food and eaten your fill.
