A culinary tour is one where you take your taste buds to the vacation as well, along with your eyes and spirit. It is an exploration of the flavours that the place has to offer, and finding out the culinary history, recipes, culture and traditions just like you would do with any attraction site.

Culinary tourism is not just your usual dining out during a tour. The itinerary of the trip is scheduled with special emphasis on visiting food-themed destinations and indulging in similar activities like cooking demo. What better place in India to do that than the God’s Own Country itself? Kerala has the most unique palate when it comes to culinary tourism. While many people confuse all south Indians cuisines to be the same, the truth could not be farther from this.

Our Kerala Culinary Tour Package takes you to Kumarakom first where you visit local farms, enjoy demo cooking classes and get to participate in an authentic vegetarian wedding feast. After taking a tour of the spice and tea plantations of Periyar, a short trip of Cochin and its attractions will be like an icing on the cake. Finish the trip with the taste of an original home-cooked Malayali meal lingering in your mouth and heart.
