We Leave Sunday for Nashville, Memphis & New Orleans!

I am so grateful. 

This Sunday, September 30th, I will be traveling with 20 people to Nashville, Memphis, and New Orleans on the 4th Chef Dez Culinary Tour, aptly named “Spoons & Tunes”. A huge thank you to all
my guests (current and past) that have faith in me and these tours. If you have been with me on one of these tours before, you already know not only how much fun they are, but also how much I dedicate of myself to making sure you are looked after and entertained. If this is your first experience on a Chef Dez Culinary Tour, you are about to find this out for yourself. 

I am going to do my best to write a daily blog entry, every evening - so everyone here at home can follow along on our incredible journey. If you haven't already done so, please subscribe to my blog so you don't miss an entry.

Sunday we arrive at the 5-star Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville for 3 nights to begin our adventure before moving on to Memphis for 2 nights, and then lastly New Orleans for 3 nights. All of our ground transportation is included as well. We will be traveling by luxurious coach with Wi-Fi and washroom onboard.

Also, every Chef Dez Culinary Tour is sponsored by Big Green Egg as we give away a Large size EGG on each tour through the Official Chef Dez Scavenger Hunt. We have already given away 3 Big Green Eggs on past tours courtesy of Big Green Egg Canada and Grand Pappy's Home Furniture in Chilliwack BC, and they are both onboard to do this again for this tour and the 2019 tour.

These tours started with the late (and great) Caryn Zimmerman as my business partner and I will do everything I can to honour her in all upcoming Chef Dez Culinary Tours. If you knew Caryn, you
already know what an amazing lady she was, and what a loss it was for everyone that knew her when she passed away from cancer just over a year ago. If you didn’t know her, I will be glad to share my experience with her, with you through amazing stories. I miss her tremendously.

Collette Travel and Colleen Forrest from Transat have really stepped up to the plate to help me make my culinary tours the best that they can be as we move forward. We have already launched the
itinerary for the 2019 Chef Dez Culinary Tour to Portugal (click HERE) and 7 spots are already sold. If you would like to join us in Portugal next October I highly recommend that you sign up today as we have limited spots and it is expected to sell out.

To my 20 current guests: I look forward to the incredible journey we are about to embark on and I appreciate and respect the time you are sharing with me during these 9 days. Let’s make some incredible memories for you!

Cheers, Dez.
