Extraordinary Food Tours

Enjoy beautiful food experiences and feed your passion for culinary knowledge. These very special tours offer you the chance to be part of something which is out of the everyday ordinary.

Food Tours Matters of Taste Cooking School Australia

Hosted by Matters of Taste’s owners, Tracey and Anthony Cotterell, these exciting tours are designed for people who love food, cooking and having fun.

Here are a selection of incredible food travel experiences that you’ll find nowhere else. These tours are what dreams are made of!

Tracey has been designing and hosting bespoke and very personal food adventures around Australia and New Zealand for the past decade. You can travel with your very own chef!

She says “For 20 years, I’ve been teaching people to enjoy food and cooking, so I know what the home cook is looking for on a tour. Organising a wide variety of experiences, getting in the ‘back door’ of businesses and meeting key people who are passionate about what they do are all aspects that make these trips so inspiring and unique.”

With Tracey, you’ll get access to the characters that shape our food choices. From primary producers to artisan makers, restaurateurs to professional specialists. These tours are remarkable in that they offer very personalised and rare access to the behind-the-scenes world of food and cooking. This is where you’ll find true culinary gold.
