“Eating should be a submissive experience, where you let down your guard and enjoy the ride.”

All the tips you need to eat like a local.



EatWith is my go-to website for local culinary experiences worldwide. They have everything from cooking with locals to local-run food tours to rooftop supper clubs. The coolest part is that you’re directly supporting locals (most of the experiences on there are run by people, not by big companies) and you have the added benefit of gaining local insight into an otherwise unfamiliar culture. You can read about my experience with EatWith in Madrid for more information.

Intrepid Travel

Intrepid Travel is hands down the best travel company I’ve ever used for small group tours. Not only do they offer a ton of amazing tours to destinations all over the globe, but they also awesome themed tours, including foodie tours! You get all the iconic sights with a focus on awesome eats – how amazing is that? I travel with Intrepid at least once a year and have never had a bad experience.

For the most comprehensive database of in-destination tours and experiences out there, I turn to Viator. They work with a ton of local tour operators so simply find your destination, filter out the tours by food and voilà! Plenty of cool foodie experiences for you. Just be sure to read the reviews since experiences vary widely by destination and operator. If you prefer a to book on a website with a nicer interface, I suggest Viator’s competitor, Get Your Guide, instead.
