Seite in deutsch anzeigen The Idea

"Expedition Gourmet" is a series of luxury culinary vacations to the best kitchens and premier hotels in some of the most beautiful locations on earth.

"Discover the best cuisine and the most exquisite wine cellars in the world with like-minded bon vivants in a small gourmet group, along with top local chefs. You will also enjoy high standards of individuality and comfort"

... That's pretty much how to describe "Expedition Gourmet".

We're happy that you have picked up our advert. We're also happy to be able to tell you the destination of our first Expedition - California, a really culinary delight.
But first of all, we'd like to tell you a little bit about ourselves and how our unusual travel events got started.

It was during job related travel that we - and by 'we' we mean Thomas Fuchs and Stefan Klemm - came up with the idea for "Expedition Gourmet". As company consultants, we arranged international conferences and incentive vacations, at the highest level and in all corners of the world. All the while, we continued to pursue our private passion for good food and fine wines.

Before long, we knew the best cuisine from anywhere between San Francisco, Tokyo and Cape Town.

In summer 2002, we were sitting with Frank Marrenbach, manager of the grand dame of the German hotel trade, the Brenner's Park Hotel & Spa in Baden-Baden. It wasn't long before agreed that it was time to launch "Expedition Gourmet" and show German gourmets the most beautiful places and best cuisine in the world.

There was only one problem - how were we going to meet genuinely like-minded connoisseurs? We decided that there was no better place than where people go to enjoy food - the best German restaurants!

Martin Scharff, who owns the Wartenberger Mühle in Palatinate and is a member of the renowned group of star chefs, the Jeunes Restaurateurs, loved the idea.

The hard work of the 43 top chefs from the Jeunes Restaurateurs d´Europe, Germany, is not just in celebration of high quality established cuisine. They also aim to innovatively supplement the tried and tested standards of modern cuisine with fresh and sometimes bold accents from elsewhere.

For "Expedition Gourmet" we have amassed our experiences and philosophies to give you an unforgettable experience:
  • Accompaniment and advice by two top chefs from Germany
  • V.I.P. passes that money can't buy - through our close personal contacts with international hotel managers
  • On site testing and selection of all hotels and restaurants by Thomas Fuchs and Stefan Klemm, so that we show you only the best
  • You will be able to share your own experiences with people that appreciate food as much as you…
  • ... …But with a high degree of individuality!
