Cook with a Cause
Acanela is Latin for the Cinnamon, as our company was founded on the connection between cuisine & culture, and the power that the cooking experience has in bringing people of different backgrounds together. As travelers, we strive to share that love and connection with the world. We have the power to elevate artisans in developing nations, as we have found that poverty-stricken people in developing nations are often the most talented. That is why we created Acanela, to give these artisans the opportunity to share their talents with the world. Traveling allows us to band together, and make an impact in the lives of artisans in developing nations. Each of our trips is created in collaboration with these talented artisans, with experiences coming directly from locals.
