OUR MISSION

Our mission is to pursue and enjoy unique and memorable gourmet journeys through unveiling the secrets of the land, its people and cuisine. We believe that food travel is experiential and is a five folding impact, where all human senses are incited. Flying for the Château or the terroir, the farm or the Michelin star restaurant, we invite everyone to take part of this new way of travelling, where emotions, empathy and food tourism revitalize altruism and human talent.
Embark with us on culinary journeys of a lifetime and feel the soul of a destination through its cuisine.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
We invented a word for our philosophy; and named it SPECTRAH.
The Science of Pairing Empathy and Culinary Tourism to Revitalize Altruism and Human Talent.
Behind this philosophy lies a spectrum of a range of qualities, ideas and values related to the human being and his love for food, for people, and for sharing.
Food is a universal language that we all speak and eating is one of the few travel activities that engages the five senses... a more powerful reason to understand the science of pairing food and travel, both becoming a twined perfect couple that can never be separated.
Today, we view food travel as part of the tourism ecosystem
• FOOD is the bridge between the land and the culture.
• There is no better way to understand a culture than through its food and the people behind it
• FOOD is a fivefold long lasting impact. It involves all five human senses
Be it in an agricultural context, appreciating farmers' labor and hard work, savoring food where flavors originate, enjoying a city's specialty street food, visiting a chocolate factory, touring in the vineyards and visiting the cellars or dining in a Michelin star restaurant... any of these activities embraces the SPECTRAH approach, where people are always behind the hard and smart work at harvesting the seeds of cuisine.

OUR VALUES

  • Empathy: We understand the hard and smart work that the human being invests at harvesting the seeds of cuisine and other culinary and food activities.
  • Altruism: We express the honest desire to appreciate and share other people's achievements in the culinary field.
  • Human Talent: The human being is the heart of our gourmet and culinary journeys. We believe culinary arts are shaped with core humane ingredients; craftsmanship, devotion and love.
  • Passion & Expertise: We are passionate about culinary and gourmet travel. We manifest a deep and strong desire to travel the world, motivated by our passion to embark on unique and memorable culinary experiences. Our expertise in the field of gastronomy and strong appetite for continuous lelrning and growth is an added value.
