Had a very enjoyable time. The tour exceeded my expectations. Was a very open and positive event with lots of laughs and great food. An excellent activity if new to the area.

I was not impressed with this. The value for a Groupon price was okay, but I certainly would not have paid full price for this experience, nor recommend it to a friend. First off, the expectations were not set properly. The restaurants we visited we not of the level I had expected per my conversations with the Rep. She gave me the impression of 5-star quality. But that’s fine, I still enjoyed the food. But experience was completely lacking. The Tour Guide, though I liked her, did not add value to the experience. She showed up late (which can be excusable), but she didn't do much to make it an "experience." She led us to the first stop, told us what we were going to eat, and that's it. No ice-breaker, introduction, little known fact session about everyone or anything to get this group of strangers talking. No history of the restaurant, the cuisine, nothing. To me, if I'm on a “Foodie Tour”, I would have expected an opportunity to learn about the food, the spices, the techniques, even an overall evaluation of the what everyone liked or didn’t like. Just seemed like I was there with a bunch of strangers eating stuff I could have ordered on my own. In fact, my husband, whose birthday I bought the Groupon for, said we probably could have done this on our own and spent the same amount of money. We expected to pay for an experience, and that experience just wasn't there. I say all this for the opportunity to improve what you offer, because I think the concept is great, just the execution was lacking. To be honest, with a great experience, you could have served me a plate valued at $10 and I'd have paid $50! AND would have told everyone about it. It's all about consumer perception. Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback. I hope you take it into account because it really could have been awesome.

We enjoyed the restaurants and the tour. Food was unusual and interesting. Never had been to these restaurants. Service at the restaurants was good. Would recommend this trip to anybody.

From Our Editors

When Gerald Bennett began work as head chef at the InterContinental Hotel in Cleveland, he was accustomed to whipping up dishes for celebrity clientele. But when the royal family of Dubai came to visit and he served them in their opulent suite, he never thought they'd ask him to leave with them as their personal chef. Since returning to the states and stepping into his role as the president of the Private Chef Association, Gerald has worked to bring his gastronomic prowess to the masses through Food Fun Adventure’s classes and tours. He passes along a visible passion for culinary fusion, which shines through in dishes blending French and Thai or American and German influences.

Culinary tours take participants to local sushi houses, steak houses, and bistros, each highlighting specialty dishes. When head chefs come out to greet their visitors, they often divulge culinary secrets and answer questions about curfew hours for free-range ingredients while doling out tapas and other small plates.

In a more hands-on culinary experience, customers gather in classes and learn to refine dishes based on a chosen theme. Using mostly local and organic ingredients in two kitchen classrooms, chefs show students how to craft delicacies such as scallion waffles with orange-zest chicken and tagine-roasted rack of lamb. In one kitchen, which doubles as an art gallery, knives flick through ingredients, and pots clatter at island stations and small burners. The company’s event center, Heaven, fills with chatter as up to 40 pairs of students filter in. Beneath projectors for screening chef demonstrations and documentaries about the life of a paring knife, separate kitchens equipped with ovens and burners fill with the bustle of creation, which gives way to reverent exhalations as patrons finally sample the fruits of their labor.
