Sophisticated travelers agree that an excellent way to experience a destination and its culture fully is by sampling and learning about local cuisine based on culinary methods that either have been perfected over many generations or have been recently introduced.  Of course, sampling great wines and touring interesting wine estates is just plain fun. CORK & FORK takes great pride in customizing culinary travel and wine travel experiences to enable you to savor the flavors of your destination and apply these learnings long after you have returned home. That’s what Travel with Flavor is all about.

Your culinary and wine travel program can range from a wine-only to a culinary-only focused travel programs or anything in between. Some favorite types of client experiences include the following:

  • Interactive culinary sessions (half-day to multi-day), led by Michelin-star and other celebrated chefs, that often begin with visits to everyday food markets. Or perhaps you would like to complement an haute cuisine session with culinary instruction that focuses more on traditional methods and recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation.
  • Insider wine estate tours with access to winemakers and estate owners, along with creative tastings, food pairings, blendings and terroir tours, as well as custom winemaking, personal shopper sessions and more to let you experience the best of wine country travel. We’ll design a program that is as educational as you desire.
  • Epicurean Walking Tours of cities, towns and villages that expose you to key historic and cultural sites as well as outstanding food markets, sensational food shops and some of our favorite wine boutiques in the world. And, yes, tastings are included!
  • Artisan food producer visits, often in the countryside, to see, learn and taste at the source
  • Personal wine collection consultation to establish or enhance your collection
  • A customized dining program that hits the mark

Whether it is a sensational salmorejo in Andalusia, a pint of Guinness with fresh oysters in Galway, pasta al ragu and a Sangiovese in Emilia-Romagna, perfectly grilled fish at a beachside restaurant in the Algarve, an asado with chimichurri in Las Pampas, foie in Bordeaux or fresh salmon in Oregon, Scotland or Ireland, CORK & FORK will delight in enabling you to go behind the scenes and prepare and/or savor the very best cuisine that a destination has to offer. Pair these culinary sessions, if you like, with insider wine experiences at boutique, limited production wineries as well as the most celebrated wine estates of the world. We would be delighted to help you explore options and to handcraft a program to enable you to Travel with Flavor.
