Savor the flavors of your destination
The essence of a culture is often best revealed on its menus. So we've carefully selected flavorful experiences that connect you to local culinary traditions.
Share a meal with a local family. More than a home-prepared meal, you'll get an intimate glimpse into daily life, whether you're sharing a stew fresh off the stove in Victoria Falls' Chinotimba neighborhood or lunch with a family in Turkey's canyon town of Halfeti.
To market! A culture's true colors and textures are found at its outdoor markets, teeming with locals in search of fresh-from-the-earth ingredients. From Cambodian jackfruit to the countless variety of Peruvian potatoes to Moroccan dates, what's on sale opens a window to culinary tradition.
Our cooking classes sizzle. Learn the secret spice of China's Szechuan Hot Pot meal. Try your hand at pressing pasta in Italy. Our classes are always enlightening. Best of all, the lesson of the day always ends up on our plate!
Generous helpings of tradition and fun. Our daily menu always includes Western options. But what is travel without sampling local cuisine, like the fresh and vibrant dishes of Thailand, a four-course Turkish meal prepared in a traditional tandir fire pit, or baklava fresh from a pastry chef.
Plus, in most locales, we include local wine and beer with every dinner.
