culinary escapes


We know a thing or two about food. Founder of Essential Escapes Emma also happens to be a MasterChef 2015 finalist and has spent the past three years since the show exploring the best possible ways to combine two of the greatest pleasures in life; food and travel.

foodie holidays

Our hand-crafted culinary experiences offer something completely unique. You will get the opportunity to get up close and personal with the locals in their homes to learn how to cook traditional family recipes. You will explore markets, cook with chefs in the hotel kitchen and enjoy exclusive signature dining menus.

Eating when travelling isn’t just about sustenance, it’s about culture, authenticity and experience and what better way to get to the heart of a destination than through its food scene. Browse our collection of tailored foodie holidays across the world.
