From 2010-2015, I worked at O'ngo Food Communications as tour and marketing director. I was then funded to do a start-up tour and events company by a group of Americans and Koreans (iFamily). Our company is focused on offering deep insights and one of a kind experiences. Our food tour service is called Delectable Travels.

You can find out their tours here: http://delectabletravels.com/

I have currently decided to leave the company, to focus on my family, my writing and cooking projects. If you are looking for a culinary tour or experience, I'm sure I could give you some recommendations and point you in the direction of some good people to help you out. You can shoot me an email at Seouleats at gmail dot com

If you want to find out more about Delectable Travels read below.

I wish you well and happy eating.

Cheers,

Dan

Delectable Travels is the startup food tour company which is partnered with iFamily, one of the large wedding and events company in Korea. It is funded via a venture group in America and Korea that believes in the growing popularity in Korean culture and cuisine. The president, Daniel Gray, has years of experience in the tour and video production industry. Before becoming a founding member and the president of Delectable Travels, Mr. Gray was a partner at O'ngo Food Communications from 2010-2015 where he was the head of tours and marketing. He is well known Korean food expert that has worked with or consulted for the OECD, European Union, New York Times, Seoul Tourism, Korea Tourism and The Korean Food Foundation. He has been interviewed, sited or quoted in the New York Times, New York Post, Politiken, Sydney Herald, and others. He has appeared on and helped with the productions of The Kimchi Chronicles, Anthony Bourdain’s Part’s Unknown, Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods, Vice TV’s Munchies, Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty, Vocativ Productions and more. He said the most interesting person he has met on his tour was a certain blond from the movie Swingers (you might know her as Rollergirl from Boogie Nights) because he and his friends idolized her growing up. He also had a chance to meet Mr. Bourdain on a production because he always dreamed of having a drink with the man while reading his books. When he isn’t eating, he writes, makes sure his wife is happy, and works out as much as he can (so he can eat more.)

What are people saying about our tours?


Daniel,

Lynda and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to express our thanks for an interesting, tasty and very enjoyable afternoon.

You've made our first visit to Seoul a true cultural experience and have encouraged us to explore more before we have to leave on Sunday.

You have a unique business model with great appeal to visitors to Korea.  We wish you every success!

Kind regards,
Lynda and Alan Rosen

Hi Daniel,
Thanks to you and Shawn again for organising the cooking class for my sister and I. We enjoyed it very much!! It was something different from the usual bus tours, etc that you do when it's your first time in a country. It was also great just to meet new people :) 
Thanks for the taxi too. We didn't manage to find that H2O shop in Apgujeong afterall. I don't think they stock the product here. But we enjoyed roaming the streets of Rodeo St and Garosugil St afterwards for some retail therapy :D
Well good luck with your move to your new place!
I will recommend my friends to O'ngo when they visit Seoul.
Regards,
Li-San

Press
Chris Backe: Chris in South Korea "Dan's knowledge of Korean food is second to none. When he wasn't explaining what a food was or offering a sauce recipe from memory, he was explaining some element of Korean culture or history to the group. While this tour has been designed for foreign visitors to Korea, expat teachers are more than welcome to join the group."

Seoul Selection Magazine "What makes Dan's Food Tours truly amazing is that Korean food is presented in a cultural context and a real world setting. No sterilized, whitewashed tourist fantasies; only the sheer beauty of Korean food—the truth."
