3 Reasons to Travel with Meg Galus

You could say Meg's culinary career began when she was just a kid, making her parents order dishes from menus she drafted in her childhood basement (she even had a strict “no dine-and-dash” policy). Today, Meg is Chicago's brilliant and award-winning pastry chef—she's a 2017 James Beard Awards semifinalist, and the Chicago Tribune’s “Pastry Chef of the Year”—known for her creativity at Michelin-starred Boka and Somerset restaurants. Vietnam with Meg will be a tasty tour of the country’s best foods, with plenty of room for dessert.

She Loves to Create

Before Meg became a chef, she earned a theater degree and performed semi-professionally in Chicago. She likes how being a pastry chef mirrors theater life, working with a team to create something special each night.

Happiness Matters

Meg’s goal with desserts is simple: Make people happy. She enrolled in pastry school after realizing her theater career wasn’t bringing her the joy she wanted.

Always Learning

Meg isn’t one to rest on her laurels. She’s forever a student, taking classes and broadening her skills in the kitchen. She’s a self-proclaimed perfectionist.
