About Forks on the Road

Forks on the Road is a boutique and bespoke travel company and our mission is to create experiences and adventures for the culinarily curious. We love that alliterative phrase because it describes those who are not just gourmets or self-proclaimed foodies but those who understand that culinary travel embraces the concept of discovering a destination's history, people and culture through its foodways. 

 

Authentic culinary travel is experiential by nature and engages all the senses. Imagine the scent of artisanal bread baking and spices in a souk; seeing the riot of colorful produce in a vibrant market; the feel of making mozzarella cheese on a dairy farm, or a newly-found truffle in the Italian countryside and a hands-on cooking lesson in a French chef’s atelier. What else is on the menu? Meeting butchers, bakers, and fishmongers and artisan food produceers; wine and craft beer tastings and guided culinary walking tours where you can truly get a taste-of-place. Istanbul’s Old City, New York’s Lower East Side and New Orleans’ French Quarter, are just a few of the possibilities  served up with a generous helping of history.

 

And since culinary travelers do not “live by bread alone”, Forks on the Road's itineraries can incorporate iconic sightseeing, museum visits and personal time for active pursuits, shopping, spa interludes or curling up by the fireplace in a lodge with your Kindle. 

 

Culinary travel destinations offered include Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, Ireland & the UK, the U.S. (New York, New Orleans, New England and Sonoma) - and just ask. Affilliated with a full-service agency we offer international air, travel insurance and other services.
