All you need to know about Food Travel

What are food tours?

When you travel for food, the best way to discover a country’s culinary scene is to join a local food tour. Our food tours are led by Local Specialists who reveal all the delicious secrets of the country’s food scene. You’ll visit markets to source ingredients, join a cooking class, learn about the history and culture of the cuisine, and sample plenty of tasty food.

What snacks are good for travel?

You’ll discover plenty of new snacks wherever you travel, but it’s also a great idea to bring a few snacks from home for long journeys. The best travel snacks are small, lightweight and airport-security approved, like granola bars, crisps and dried fruit and nuts. Be sure to bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated on your food holiday and a re-useable coffee cup too.

Which city has the best street food?

You’ll find some of the world’s greatest food in side alleys and street corners. The cities with the best street food include Singapore with their incredible hawker malls, Thailand with their sizzling woks, and Mexico with carts full of steaming tamales. We also love the fresh banh mi served on the streets of Vietnam and the gelato and pizza hole-in-the-wall options in Italy.

Which country in Europe has the best food?

Europe is home to some of the world’s greatest food, but which European cuisine is best? Crowd favourites include Italy for their pizza and pasta, France for their pastries and cheese, Spain for their paella and tapas, and Germany for their beer and bratwurst. We also love Georgia for their khinkali and rich stews, and Croatia for their seafood and roast lamb.
