The Story Behind the Book

We’ve been bringing people together over food for eight years, and right now we find ourselves in the midst of an unprecedented crisis—a surreal time when the world has stopped traveling. The effects of what’s unfolding are devastating for tour operators like us, who exist to bring people together. 


But there is a silver lining. 


You can stop us from traveling, but nothing can stop us from enjoying food.


If ever there was a time to pour your heart into cooking, it’s now. A time when our kitchens are a refuge from the news channels, and kneading dough is a welcome distraction from our Instagram feeds.  


So we decided to feed your desire to cook and be creative in the kitchen with some of our favorite dishes from our tours. We hope that the recipes in this downloadable book spark joy during the most uncertain of times. 


This digital book is an act of love compiled by the entire Devour Tours team across eight cities. These are the recipes we’ve chosen to represent us, to bring our cities and our tours into your kitchen and onto your table for a couple of hours. 


Your purchase of this downloadable recipe book is much appreciated. We are hoping that projects like this one will help us survive these very lean months and that we’ll be able to welcome you back to our cities before long.

Devour Tours is a food tour company with tours in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, San Sebastian, Lisbon, Rome, Paris and London. We’ve been connecting curious travelers to local culture in our cities since 2012, and the recipes in this book come from our team across Europe: our staff, guides and the bars and restaurants that we visit on our tours. These are our family recipes, and now we’re passing them on to your family.

We’ve also included a list of our favorite local retailers for European products in the US, in case you’re craving something specific.
