We began traveling with small groups in Italy 10 years ago and today we’re pleased to offer Foodie Adventure excursions in Tuscany/Umbria, Loire Valley, Provence, Catalonia & Sicily.

European Culinary Adventures

Travel with us and together we will spend our days exploring beautiful villages and regional historic sites. Your vacation will include daily guided excursions and tastings with a variety of small producers. Every night the kitchen transforms into a hands on cooking class where Chef Michael will guide you thru the preparation of a delicious 4 course dinner.
