Laguna Culinary Arts Adventures specializes in small-group, personalized
travel with a culinary focus. We believe that in order to understand
the cuisine of a region, you must experience the local history,
culture and customs, so each of our trips offers a balance of culinary
delights, historical & cultural activities and outdoor activities
for our guests to enjoy.
LCAA offers trips to enticing overseas and domestic destinations.
Each one of our trips is fully researched and tested by our team
to ensure the highest quality accommodations, cuisine and activities,
and our trips are run by the company’s principles who will
meet you at the designated “pick up” point and transport
you off to your adventure. Our guest-to-staff ratio averages 2:1,
ensuring a personal touch for each guest, and ensuring all of our
guests’ needs are attended to.
We strive to find charming but high-quality private accommodations
in each location, indicative of the local culture. Whether we are
in an 18th century chateau in France, a country manor house in Spain,
or a small inn in Sonoma, our goal is to allow our guests have the
run of the property and feel at home. As a culinary focused trip,
we will visit the local markets and meet the local vendors, as well
as enjoying lovely picnics of local fare in breathtaking locations.
We’ll visit local producers, including wineries, that are
not otherwise accessible to the public, and our chef will teach
our guests how to prepare the local dishes, using local products,
in hands-on cooking classes through-out the week.
Unlike other “culinary” trips, we understand that you
are on vacation, and while you may love to cook, you don’t
want to get stuck in the kitchen everyday. All of our trips include
personalized visits to the most interesting local sites, whether
they are villages, castles, monasteries or prehistoric caves. We
include plenty of outdoor activities to enable our guests to experience
the local surroundings, and to allow them to work off a little of
the great food and wine that is included with each trip! We also
understand that our guests want to be able to relax, so each trip
itinerary has plenty of “down time” for reading, walking
or just relaxing. All activities are optional, so there is no pressure
to “join the group” if you prefer to opt out of a particular
