Traveling to Sicily without a guide can be a bit intimidating.

Going to Sicily alone can make you feel like you stood on top of a large mountain of culture and food that was buried beneath you, hidden. Let us reveal Sicily’s food to you.

Fewer places in the world house are as historically significant and recognizable as London, yet the city was often the butt of most food jokes. In short, British cuisine was famous for not being very interesting. After traveling to London and much of the British Empire for more than three decades, we can assure you that reputation is dead wrong. Come to London and discover just how rich, varied, and delicious the London food scene has become. Join us for a walk through the backdrop of British nobility, industrial triumph and the influence of foreign trade on the cities culinary history.

Croatia

September 9 - 18, 2019 $6,950 /person 12 people
Friuli and Istria (just like most of Central Europe) have colorful and complex histories that are reflected in their food and wine traditions. Though not large, their landscapes, climates, cooking, and wines change dramatically from region to region. These locations combine Habsburg and Ottoman heritage while the Istrian Peninsula (claimed by locals to be the gourmet capital of the country) has a cosmopolitan past, with Italian, Slovenian, and Croatian influences. The emblematic dishes of the peninsula, rich in truffles, Boskarin beef, oysters, Adriatic seafood (cooked and raw), cheese, aged prsut, olive oil, and homemade pasta, rival those in neighboring Italy:. Of course, there will be plenty of the local wine—Malvazia and Terran—to accompany this amazing food. Learn more »

Spain - Basque Country

September 28 - October 6, 2019 Sold out - Waiting list $6900.00 per person 15 people
The Basque Country sits in the green north of Spain on the Atlantic coast, straddling over into France. Known locally as Euskadi or País Vasco, they have their own language, their own culinary traditions (recognized my Michelin granting stars to over 30 restaurants), and incredibly beautiful geography. For these reasons alone we should visit, but once you learn of their passion for combining the convivial act of dining with the best quality ingredients, well, there’s no turning back.
