How does an Egyptian adventure sound, complete with guided tours of markets and meals in five-star restaurants? What about a leisurely holiday cruise to Tahiti, dining with a celebrated chef onboard the Paul Gauguin?
But bragging rights of this caliber aren’t cheap.
Chef Pyles, known as the founding father of southwest cuisine, has identified several far-flung destinations he considers “emerging” in the world of food. They include Turkey, Peru, Morocco and other exotic locales. He’ll explore each in turn in the coming months, along with a small entourage. Book a seat on one of his “Journeys by Design” getaways and you can join him.
These are not, however, your typical tour bus affairs.
The aforementioned Egypt trip, for example, spans ten days and includes accommodations at the Mena House Oberoi, for starters. You’ll be treated to a pyramid view room at that luxury Cairo hotel, which has also hosted royalty and heads of state.
Later, you’ll sail to Luxor on the Alexander the Great yacht, for a visit to King Tut’s tomb. Not to mention all that fine dining and ongoing education from the chef himself. Taking place this coming February 15-25, the package rings in at $11,995 per person.
In other words, it might drain your savings, but it would surely be the culinary adventure of a lifetime. Without a doubt, there are more than a few food fanatics who would gladly trade one for the other.
