Welcome!

This site is designed to help you search all the many culinary tours and cooking classes that are out there.  It’s an amazing number!

The information is taken from the websites of companies offering the tours or classes, and I can’t vouch for it unless I happen to have taken the tour myself (in that case, I’ve left comments on the listing). Nobody has paid for a listing.

Below, on the right, you’ll find a detailed menu, listing all the locations (including international ones) and types of tours, which are too numerous to include in the menu above. There’s also a search box where you can put in a location or type of tour that interests you. You can even search by items tasted on a tour (try searching for chocolate!).

I hope you’ll review any tours that you’ve taken in the comments section of each post, to help others know which ones are best.

If you operate a tour that you’d like me to add, please leave the info in a comment.

Please sign up for our newsletter, where I’ll review tours I’ve taken in depth, including photos. Just leave your email address in the box to the right >>

    Thank you for listing both our L.A. and our Pasadena food tasting tours. If I could trouble you to please list our company name as “Melting Pot Food Tours”, I would be most grateful. I do not want to be mistaken for The Melting Pot restaurant chain. Thank you very much.

      No problem, Lisa! I’ve updated your listing – but not sure that it exactly helps distinguish you from the restaurant chain!

  9. Cook Eat-Italian February 13, 2012 at 9:15 am #

    Hi,
    Some of the tours here look great. Taste Lebanon looks amazing. Ours is somewhat tame in comparison. Could you add ‘Cook Eat Italian’ http://www.cookeatitalian.com to your blog. We run cooking classes for tourists, travelers and locals in Florence, Tuscany. Just this season we have started a market tour and cooking class combined, including all the cheeses Italy is famous for, olive oils, wine…I could go on!

    Thank you and congratulations on the site!
