Springwise: Billed as a “community of culinary tourism,” French Spoontrip is a place where travelers can book activities with local, gastronomy-minded providers while locals with a culinary flair can offer and advertise their own activities for free. Site-specific visits, meet-and-greets with producers, tastings, gourmet ateliers, cooking classes, weekend stays at a farm, and gastronomy-themed holidays are just a sampling of the offers to be found. Travelers can search the site by region, activity type, category and date; specific examples range from a two-hour tour of wine tasting in Tuscany for EUR 50 per person, a weekend of truffle-hunting in Provence for EUR 270 per person, to an 11-day culinary tour in Turkey for EUR 2,900 each. All activity providers are aficionados or professionals with a particular passion for sharing their expertise with international travelers, and all manage their offerings through the site themselves.
