Take a walk with us through the bustle of Seattle & Hawaii's food scene; where the vendors, farmers and artisans cultivate something truly unique and engage all the senses. On a thirteen day stay, you’ll find yourself in good company among beekeepers, fishmongers, cheesemakers, and chocolatiers along with lively conversation about sustainable agriculture and how to lead a food-centered life. Here, the immersion into food culture will be made complete as you prepare fresh, farm-sourced ingredients to craft seasonal and wildly flavorful dishes under the masterful guidance of chefs, artisans, and local farmers. The abundance doesn’t have to end with a wide range of cooking techniques and plentiful meals—there will be time to journey into the green space of the Pacific Northwest and the lush island of Kauai; experience the thrill of a coastal horseback ride or a late afternoon snorkel. Beginning at the communal table and extending to the natural landscapes that surround us, our trip offers the unique opportunity to blend travel and life experience with culinary skill development and plenty of adventures.
