Testimonials for Carol:
“What a fabulous time we had on Carol’s culinary tour. It was all we had hoped for and more. Everything was delivered with such enthusiasm and perfection. When one plans a trip for only 1 week because they have business commitments preventing them from taking more time, they want it all perfectly planned such as this was as there is no time to waste and so much beauty to see. The food was as delicious & breathtaking as the surroundings we cooked and ate in. I look forward to partaking in future trips that Carol organizes, and truly recommend it as it was a memorable experience from start to finish.”

“This trip was a great experience to sample both the cultural and gastronomical taste of Italy. Carol made it easy for us with her excellent organizational skills before and throughout the trip Not only did we take part in the famous Mamma Agata’s cooking classes, where we made the most amazing Italian dishes and drank the famous limoncello, we were also able to tour the astounding coastline of Amalfi, visiting places like Positano, Ravello and Capri.. . Thanks to Carol’s intensive knowledge of the area, we were able to just relax and enjoy ourselves with lots of wonderful conversations, delectable food, sites and laughter..Thank you Carol for planning a such wonderful trip.”

Their attention to detail in every aspect of the trip from transportation to local area knowledge was second to none. Carol Ketelson, owner of Delectable Destinations, was with us every step of the way ensuring that all was handled and that everyone’s needs were well taken care of.
