Eat Smart Culinary Travel has been on the forefront of culinary tourism since 1993.

I have been so fortunate to be Joan Peterson's business partner and daughter! My mom was ahead of the game in culinary travel when she published her first travel guidebook dedicated to the cuisine of Brazil in 1993. We now have 14 culinary travel guidebooks in our award winning series and lead culinary tours around the world.

We lead culinary tours around the world. Join culinary travel expert, Joan Peterson, and get to the heart of the culture through its cuisine!

Hi Susan, thanks for sharing your tour company with Travel Massive. Very impressive that you’ve been operating for so many years!

What’s been the biggest changes you’ve seen over the past few years in terms of a) guidebooks and b) culinary tours?

Thanks, Ian. We stopped publishing new guidebooks in 2017. Too much information can just be found online, so our market is really those wanting to deep dive into a country's culinary history in a book format. Our culinary tours continue to be very popular, but we have faced the pandemic, natural disasters, and political conflict. We are leading 5 tours in 2024, which is about all I can handle with my busy travel advisor business.
