Announcing - Craftours Culinary Experiences!

As part of our 25th Anniversary celebration at Craftours, we are very happy to announce our brand-new Craftours Culinary Experiences, under the direction of Chef Daniel Kling. Chef Danny, as he likes to be called, grew up in Minnesota in a German/Norwegian family and attended the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school where he focused his skills on patisserie and baking. He was immediately employed as an assistant pastry chef at The Walt Disney Yacht & Beach Club Resort in Orlando, Florida. His culinary talents led him across the United States to a variety of places where he served as a caramel maker, pastry chef, cake decorator, and supervising a kitchen at a popular wedding venue.

Jim West commented, "For many years, Craftours has always offered a culinary experience with our tours, and since we have excellent relationships with chefs and kitchens around the world, it only made sense to expand on this and offer a culinary niche travel opportunity to our guests. Chef Danny is going to be amazing in this position as he not only brings a wealth of talent, but he is enthusiastic and passionate about what he does, which will translate to an enjoyable experience."

Craftours Culinary Experiences kick off next Spring in England at the annual Cake International Show and Chef Danny, along with Craftours owner, Jim West, will be the personal escorts for this experience. Space is limited to 10 people only for each culinary experience, which will ensure guests are given full attention in our hands-on cooking lessons and throughout the journey. Other culinary experiences will include India, Vietnam, Morocco, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, China, Thailand, Germany, Mexico and dozens of other destinations. We will also be hosting culinary events across the United States as part of our Craftours CocoonTM Experiences, a five-day experience with master chefs.

Our full program and schedule will be available in October, so if these tour experiences appeal to you, be sure to contact Chef Danny at [email protected]. You will be added to our priority mailing list so you receive the information before it is announced to the general public.
