Walking through a bustling market place – the smell of freshly baked bread filling the air. Sharing a romantic evening with a loved one as you sip wine and gaze up at the night sky. Stepping out of your comfort zone to try an unexpected regional delicacy. These are just some of the unforgettable culinary moments you’ll savor on a vacation created for you by Taylored Tours.
Here are just a few of the U.S.A. culinary experiences that put you at the heart of where a meal is made — in the kitchen. From exclusive cooking classes and culinary demonstrations to breaking bread with locals, these are truly immersive culinary experiences.
DISCOVER WHY MAINE IS KNOWN FOR LOBSTER
When in Maine, indulging in lobster is a must. On your way to Bar Harbor, make a stop at a traditional lobster shack for a taste of fresh lobster, caught just steps away. Then, find out what life is like for local lobstermen and see traps hauled out of the water as you cruise the waters on a traditional Downeast-style lobster boat. Experience this New England foodie experience on Roaming Coastal Maine.
ALL ABOUT NEW ORLEANS CUISINE
Creole cuisine is often referred to as “city food.” It traces back to 18th century New Orleans. Creole blends influences from around the world and is considered high-class. Complex sauces and dishes with higher-priced ingredients are Creole.
Cajun cuisine is often referred to as “country food.” Its origins date back to the Acadian French colonists who settled in the region now called Acadiana. Cajun food is bursting with spices and most dishes start with the “holy trinity of Cajun cuisine” – onion, celery, and bell pepper. But with Cajun cooking, it really is all about the spice!
GREEN CHILE IN NEW MEXICO
On a tour of the American Southwest, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a dish that doesn’t feature green chile sauce. Smothered on top of tamales, mixed into hearty stews, folded into a breakfast burrito, or even baked into chocolates, the green chile is a staple of New Mexican cuisine. Once you take a bite of the sauce created from this piquant pepper, you’ll understand why it’s a hit with locals and natives alike.
Hello. I’m Cindi Taylor. Welcome to Taylored Tours!
I’ve always loved seeing new places and meeting new people, and sharing these experiences with friends. As my travel experiences and expertise grew, I often found myself helping friends and family plan their own vacations.
While growing up, I spent my weekends and summers on our family farm in Illinois, As a result, I was always interested, while traveling, in learning about local agriculture practices and culinary customs.
The art of making wine has also been very intriguing to me. I studied viticulture and enology courses and learned how to make wine. This hobby turned into a passion and my family planted vineyards on our farm land. I routinely travel back to Illinois to participate in pruning, grape harvesting, and wine making.
My personal interest and experience in culinary and wine adventures has translated into some unique opportunities, both domestically and internationally, for clients who are interested in trips that feature great food and great wine.
