As the number of culinary tour companies grows, so does the demand for culinary tourist guides. There is a wide range of talent among culinary guides. Some guides have been professionally trained, while many others have not. Some guides have great personalities, but limited knowledge of the local culinary culture, which is a disservice to their customers. This masterclass is designed to train to a consistent level, with the end goal of delivering a high-quality culinary tour with the highest chance of receiving the highest ratings from customers.
Learn why you need to deliver a memory, and not just a meal to your customers, both visitors and locals.
There are no specific prerequisites to enroll in this Masterclass, other than a good working knowledge of English.
The training is suitable for anyone working in or interested in any aspect of working as a Culinary Tourist Guide.
