2016 Culinary Domestic Trip to Charleston

Discovering the Culinary Treasures of Charleston
May 8 – 10, 2016

Our trip was a great success!  See photos on our Facebook page here.

FCP was thrilled to launch our first domestic culinary excursion.  We chose the “#1 City in to Travel to in the United States” according to Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, Charleston, SC.   Our tours are known for their immersion into the culture the area we are visiting and learning what influences their cuisine while earning continuing education credits along the way.  As a FCP member, you can bring a foodie friend along who is not a FCP member or a dietitian.

What makes FCP tours so special is choosing a city that is known for its world renowned cuisine.  Home to many James Beard nominated and award winning chefs, you will learn not just how to use an ingredient in the recipe, but where it comes directly from and the history behind many Lowcountry dishes.

Culinary Tour costs $1,599.00 for double occupancy.  $252.00 single supplement.
