Sorry for the late response. After 5 years at $45 I've recently changed the At the Chef's Table culinary tour price to $49...still WELL below the cost of most food tours.

You need to call the owner of the tour and seek a reservation with him. The name is listed in my review, and there is a website with a phone number...........
