Journeys Rediscovered

Rediscover your passion for food & wine travel. We create unique & enriching culinary travel experiences within Australia & Worldwide.

When travelling, food & wine are one of the key ways in which we truly experience a destination. 

25 years in the luxury travel industry and a passion for all things culinary allows Journeys Rediscovered to create Immersive Culinary Small Group Journeys to exotic destinations. Kirsty Thomas-Thoeun, owner of Journeys Rediscovered is also WSET I & II trained in both Wines & Spirits. Kirsty is also the Event manager for the International Cool Climate Wine Show just recently held in Melbourne.

Enjoy world-class restaurants, top bars, wineries, distilleries, market visits & hands-on cooking classes to enjoying local specialties with hosts in their homes – Culinary tours are a great way to explore a destination and its culture. Journeys Rediscovered take you behind the scenes, and offers an authentic insider access to the local culture through its food. We share a local’s secret restaurants & bars with you, we offer unique experiences with chefs, slow food producers, winemakers & distillers that you simply could not book yourself.  

Margaritas in Mexico, paella in Madrid, a tanginess in Morocco…. enjoy a malted whisky in Scotland, a Pisco in Peru or a Pinot Noir on the Mornington Peninsula– food & drink excites us and unites us, whatever the cuisine.

We unlock the essence of the destination and its people, through market visits, hands-on experiences and learn to cook dishes that celebrate culture and have been handed down through generations.  While cultures and their foods are central to Journeys Rediscovered Small Group Journeys, the wines, beers, local spirits and coffee are also central to these destinations – so we also visit local distilleries, wineries and breweries where the destination permits. We also include some iconic restaurants or bars in destinations – so a full gourmets experience. With many years spent developing wonderful contacts with hotels, local operators, wineries & food producers – we can offer an experience you simply couldn’t design yourself.
