Congratulations – you’ve booked your culinary trip with us. We couldn’t be more excited and can’t wait to welcome you on our adventure. In order to get you ready for a world of new flavours and cultures, we wanted to give you a few tips & trips.
Time to start with those packing list, sharpen your knives or get your camera ready. Let’s get excited for your culinary adventure with The Chef’s Cut.
Packing for your culinary trip depends highly on the chosen destination and time you’re travelling at. From the sunny south of Italy, to the mountains in Lebanon – our trips discover places all over the world. We would highly recommend checking the local weather forecast in order for your suitcase to match the temperature of your chosen destination.
When it comes to cooking equipment, no need to set off the airport security with your own set of knives. We will provide you with everything necessary to master those new recipes, ranging from aprons and chef hats to cutting boards and knives. We will also give you a little The Chef’s Cut notebook, which will be convenient for writing down those newly learned skills.
Next to clothes, we would advise you to bring whatever you can’t miss when travelling. Bring your camera, GoPro, compass, binoculars or dictionary – whatever you think is a travel essential.
If you’re travelling to a place that doesn’t use the same currency as your home country, we would recommend exchanging some money before. There will be ATMs for you to withdraw money in the local currency, but it’s always good to have some pocket money upon arrival.
Some destinations might use different power outlets than what you’re used to. Make sure to look into your destination, and make sure to bring a converter to charge your phone/camera at night.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
We will have everything ready for you once we start our trip at the chosen meeting point (keep an eye on your inbox for more details) but since we’re travelling with people from all over the world, you will need to book your own transport to our departure location.
Book your flight
Make sure to book your flight, train or bus to our destination. You can check prices and availability yourself through apps such as Skyscanner or Omio, or you can contact our booking team to help you out with transportation.
Arrange transport from the airport
Since everyone will be arriving at different times, you might need to organise your own transport from the airport to our meeting point. This can be done through a local taxi service, Uber or you can get in touch with our team to look at the options.
