Authentic ways to experience the best food and drink, wherever you are.
The best food, places to stay, cooking courses & tours
This section is new but our aim to bring you gems from all parts of the world we have lived in or stayed in for long enough to live like a local.
Having at least a decade of experience in both the travel and hospitality business, we’ve loved been meeting the needs of our foodie guests, and to be honest we’re missing helping them. We owned the top foodie boutique spa hotel, restaurant and cooking course in Marrakech for 10 years and we understand how important it is to experience other cultures through it’s food. In fact, it’s the absolute best way !
Explore the local food culture through the local experts that care.
We’ve been both the behind the scenes supplier and the keen foodie guest so we’re well equipped to advise you. We´ll take you to countries, places, or people we have a connection with, and new ones we find that resonate with our own values. There will be a good reason why we want to showcase each place, course, or person we show you. We hope you see that too.
We know how both the travel and hospitality business works behind the scenes so what is presented online is pretty transparent to us. We’ll cut through the crap for you and show you what we like, so you can make faster, easier, better choices !
Food travel in 2021 !
Thanks for your patience during the world pandemic.
The hospitality industry has suffered tremendously, which is so sad for us to see. Great hospitality is at the heart of local communities so we will be building this section ready to help everyone when you can travel more easily again… soon we hope.
In the mean-time…
Explore the world´s foods at home
You know I´m all about food journeys. Well, you can still explore the foods of the world through our recipes and guides, plus particularly for those of you in N.America having to entertain and educate the family during lockdowns, we´ve found this really special company for you to check out.
We totally love what they are doing ( you know when you see something so special that you wish you had thought of it yourself ! ). So we´ve done the next best little thing we can do online, and have partnered as an affiliate with them. That means, if you go through our link and make a purchase, the price stays the same to you, but we may earn a small commission. Thank-you.
when you plan to travel… Let us help you find your way
Stay at the best places, taste the best dishes, Learn how to cook them.
Now we’re working nomadically, living some part of each year in 2 – 4 different places, and we continue to explore life through food, everywhere we go. We’ll bring you the best opportunities to learn and experience the most authentic foods around the world. We´ll show you the best people, places and companies.
We aim to cover the places we know best… starting with Spain ( Barcelona, Gran Canaria, Mallorca); UK; Netherlands (Amsterdam, Gouda); Ireland (Dublin, Cork ); Morocco (Marrakech, Essaouria); Finland (Helsinki and more), Italy (Tuscany, Umbria, Rome); France (Paris, Provence, Auvergne and more).
1. Best foodie places to stay, and eat at.
Luxury & boutique hotels, BnBs, Agro tourismos, Restaurants & Cafés
Staying in a foodie place is the best. You know their top priorities are food, and you !
You’ll also want to know what to eat & drink in the local area, and where (good, or traditional foods and foodie places to visit.) As you probably know, hotel staff recommendations aren’t always the best for the guest unless the owner / manager is on top of it all the time ! However, the best and most authentic places should tell you the dishes to try and the places to eat and drink when you’re out and about. We’ll test it out when we visit the area, and we’ll also share our own experiences with you when you book… so you can always cross reference.
2. Cooking courses
residential, walking tours, day courses
Cooking or sharing a meal, is one of the best ways to meet local people ( and other travellers), and learn about their culture.
Spend time with the locals, the experts, the cooks and chefs, and the locals. Learn about the culture through their dishes. You should be able to understand the countries staple foods, the most commonly used ingredients ( and why ! ), and the best dishes to be able to replicate when you get home. Show your friends at home what you can do, and even take it one exciting step further by fusing it with what you know already from your own country.
3. Where to eat out
Restaurants, cafes and bars
We´ll give you a list of our favourite places to eat from posh nosh to street food. Maybe we´ll bump into you in one of them but – we can´t be in every bar in every town every day so we need you to be our sharp eyes and ears on the ground too ! So the deal… all we ask is that you keep giving us your feedback in the comments so that we can keep on top of it too. Thank-you.

Thank-you to Tengyart from Russia for this sad to mad eggs image.
Eggs can be the most difficult things to cook well, and I feel this image represents all the emotions from cook to chef.
Makes us giggle.
