Unable to make one of our scheduled trips? Have your own group? Or your own location?

Ed and Jinny Fleischman are available to come to your location to organize your group's cooking experience. Our services range from serving as personal chefs to running cooking classes at your location. The service is perfect for family reunions, friends traveling together or business groups who want a different activity.

The food that is prepared can reflect where you are or can be from an entirely different region of the world. There is a wide range of cuisines you and your group can chose from. In the area of American food, we do a number of traditional and regional meals as well as new American flavors using seasonal foods.

  • Italian - classes combine dishes from various regions or focus on a specific area such as Piedmont or Sicily.
  • French - you can decide to focus on a single region such as Provence or Burgundy or have a meal that melds together various French flavors.
  • Moroccan - foods here range from various mezes to tagines and couscous or even a delicious chicken and phyllo pie.
  • Australian - meat and fish specialties combined with great fresh produce make this a great choice for a group.
  • Spanish - several tapas and a dramatic paella make an excellent meal for your group.
  • Portuguese - a Portuguese seafood stew is a great center piece for a delicious meal when combined with seasonal salads.
  • Chilean - there's more to Chilean food than sea bass but that's also great. Classes can include great small plates, salads and of course, fish and seafood.
  • Or, just mix it up!

Since this is Customized Travel we can work a wide range of special dietary requests into the class. The choice is yours! We can work with you to come up with a menu that will exceed the expectations of your group!

The cost for Customized Travel will vary depending on time, location, food and services desired. To schedule your Customized Travel, email Jinny at or call her at 202-966-3361 to discuss the specific needs of your group.

Deposits are required for all Customized Travel. Cancellation penalties can apply.

"Sallie and I want you and Ed to know that the dinner and the entire evening last Saturday was simply great. We are getting rave reviews from all our friends. Nobody wanted to leave. You almost had to throw us out. Beyond the quality of the food and the fun of participation, you and Ed create a very homey atmosphere that really makes the whole event work. You made us start to think of what other events should we be putting together. Sallie will never forget her 42nd birthday. Thanks again."
