Iconic luxury hotel brand Four Seasons has created the ultimate gift for the gourmand: an extraordinary voyage through cuisines and cultures in nine countries. Highlighted by a series of Michelin-starred dining experiences, immersive cooking classes, foraging expeditions, and market tours led by renowned chefs and local culinary pioneers, the Culinary Discoveries journey takes guests on a 19-day odyssey across two continents, with air travel aboard the Four Seasons Private Jet and luxurious accommodations at Four Seasons hotels and resorts.
On this groundbreaking culinary journey developed in partnership with world-renowned Copenhagen restaurant Noma, track the evolution of food, culture and creativity across Asia and Europe. Curated by René Redzepi and Noma, guests enjoy an insider’s look into the people, places, and products that are changing the culinary landscape of our world.
“We have always enjoyed the opportunity to travel and explore, and to learn about the ingredients and cultures that have helped shape what people eat and how they cook,” adds Noma’s Redzepi.
The Four Seasons Private Jet will visit 9 culinary destinations in 19 days, including Seoul, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Chiang Mai, Mumbai, Florence, Lisbon, Copenhagen and Paris. Along the way, guests will meet other legends of the global food scene including Namae Shinobu, Alvin Leung Jr, Duangporn “Bo” Songvisava, and Jiro Ono, who gained worldwide recognition for his 10-seat restaurant in the Tokyo subway through the 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi.
“The list of dining experiences alone is astounding. Other travellers could spend weeks or months trying to secure reservations at any of these restaurants, and then plan a special trip around one meal. Here, Four Seasons has secured the best tables and behind-the-scenes access, all in one incredible trip filled with opportunities to eat, drink and explore to your heart’s content,” says Javier Loureiro, Director of Guest Experience and On-Board Concierge.
The Culinary Discoveries journey is taking off May 27 – June 14, 2017, costing guests $135,000 per person, based on double occupancy. Guests travel aboard the 52-seat custom-designed Boeing 757 and stay exclusively at Four Seasons hotels and resorts, with dedicated staff both in the air and on the ground tailoring each journey to each guest’s own interests.
