Welcome to Delicious Connections!

Les Liaisons Delicieuses founder and president, Patti Ravenscroft, has been organizing extraordinary, behind-the-scenes vacations to France, Italy, Morocco, and Vietnam since 1994.  Every detail of each trip is carefully planned to offer truly personal connections to the local people, including chefs, farmers, winemakers, and artists who open their homes, their kitchens and their hearts to each guest. Because of the innermost access to the local people and farmers in France on her tours, France has honored Patti with their coveted Chevalière de Mérite Agricole medal in 2004. Intimate connections with the culture, fabulous food, outstanding wines, unique experiences, great camaraderie, and access to exceptional chefs – many with Michelin stars – are the hallmark of each trip.

If you are passionate about food and wine and desire an intimate experience with the local culture, join us on one of our unique journeys into the heart and soul of France, Italy, Morocco, Vietnam and, soon, Turkey. I promise you the memories of a lifetime!
