Seattle, WA (PRBuzz.com) February 15, 2012 -- WanderTours invites 15 women to join a tasting tour of one of the spiciest cities in the country. In addition to the culinary delights, participants will walk through 400 years of history and learn about the evolution of rich Southwestern cuisine in the quaint and picturesque capital of New Mexico, Santa Fe. The city's storied past and the delicious native food it produces speaks volumes. Come hear and taste this story on this WanderTours women-only exploration of the past and present of Santa Fe through food, wine and chocolate.
The rich cultural heritage and cuisine of "The City Different" will be explored in WanderTours' Santa Fe Culinary Tour for Women from June 20 - 24, 2012. Highlighting the trip will be cooking demonstrations and an incredible dinner of Native American foods in the home of renowned chef and food photographer Lois Ellen Frank.
This intimate tour is open to just fifteen women and will take participants on an extraordinary walking tour of historical downtown with an entertaining and humorous portrayal of the city by a local expert. Other treats featured include an organic farm tour where you'll learn about agriculture in the unique terroir of the high desert, enjoy a privatewine-tasting at a local winery, take cooking lessons to learn the intricacies of preparing spectacular tamales and follow a local check on a market tour where you can sample fresh breads, cheeses and regional produce and New Mexican spices. See why chocolate is a local passion in Santa Fe during our tantalizing chocolate-tastings scheduled daily at the many specialty artisanal chocolate shops.
Beth Whitman, founder of WanderTours and the leader for this trip, says that this tour is not only about the food. "It's also about the deep-seated culture of the region. As an example, the women are visibly moved after an impeccable dinner and Native American drumming session hosted by Lois Ellen Frank."
The tour will be led by Whitman who is the author of the Wanderlust and Lipstick guides including The Essential Guide for Women Traveling Solo and For Women Traveling to India. She is also the publisher of WanderlustAndLipstick.com. Though Beth has been a globetrotter for 25 years, one of her very favorite destinations in the U.S. is Santa Fe. As a vegetarian, she is constantly amazed at the variety of options and the depth of flavor to be found in New Mexican cooking.
