Luxury Travel Advisors have handpicked some of the most exquisite culinary experiences from around the world.
The gastronomic meal of the French is a customary social practice for celebrating important moments in the lives of individuals and groups, such as births, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, achievements and reunions. It is a festive meal bringing people together for an occasion to enjoy the art of good eating and drinking. The gastronomic meal emphasizes togetherness, the pleasure of taste, and the balance between human beings and the products of nature. Important elements include the careful selection of dishes from a constantly growing repertoire of recipes; the purchase of good, preferably local products whose flavours go well together; the pairing of food with wine; the setting of a beautiful table; and specific actions during consumption, such as smelling and tasting items at the table.
Imagine strolling through a local market with the head chef of your five star hotel, exploring and learning about sumptuous local produce and then having them prepared for you back at your private dining table. We make it happen.
We have sourced the very best in culinary experiences from around the world, from private cooking classes in the most luxurious hotel kitchens to Michelin star restaurants. We tailor-make every trip so whatever your gastronomic wish is our command.
