Gourmet Food Tour October 2022

I’m so excited to be offering this tour with Crystal Provance who shares my love of all things edible! Crystal is a resident of the Chapala area who has already come on two of our tours! Formerly from Charlotte, North Carolina, she is a chef and former owner of the successful catering and events company, The Southern Gourmet. As well as being your hosts for the week, we will both be doing cooking demos and sharing our creations for lunch that day. 

Below is a detailed itinerary, including pricing and deposit info. We have received a lot of interest for this tour and I would recommend making a deposit as soon as possible! 

Please feel free to share this information with anyone else that you feel might be interested.

And don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions!
