Food & Wine
Food and drink are an instrumental part of many a culture, and a brilliant way to experience a destination is through its cuisine.
Yet with amazing new restaurants opening all the time, and with waiting lists as long as your arm before they do open, it’s can be something of a challenge to know which one to choose and, more importantly, how to secure a reservation.
Thanks to our contacts all over the world, we are able to bypass the waiting lists to book a table for you at your restaurant of choice. What’s more, we offer some exclusive culinary experiences to offer that are only available to a privileged few.

MASTER COOKING CLASS WITH CHEF AL AIN DUCASSE
Not only is Paris the capital of France, it is recognised as the food capital of the world - and for good reason. With a bistro on every corner, and more Michelin-starred restaurants than you can shake a croissant at, choosing where to eat can be almost as hard as which museum to visit first. French cuisine is a reason in its own right to visit Paris and something we revel in; we'll help you decide which restaurant is right for you - and secure a table for you, even if there is a lengthy waiting list.
Once you have enjoyed Paris's finest fare, you may want to try your hand at creating your own. And there is no one better to learn from than multi-Michelin-starred chef, Alain Ducasse. Join Alain at his cookery school in Paris for a master class followed by lunch at his culinary institute.
