Food and travel go hand in hand

Page Text Content

FOODIE Good food and travel have always gone hand in hand, but now more and more of us are looking at travel from a culinary perspective. It's not just about the sights we can visit, it's about getting an authentic cultural experience; and one of the more important aspects of any culture is its cuisine. Food can teach you about the history, traditions and social norms of a country on a deeper more engaging level, and that's why many of us want to experience a destination from a local's point of view. Food brings people together, and as you are enjoying that homemade pasta in Italy, tasting the fresh made-that-morning bread in France, laughing with friends over tapas in Spain or smelling lemongrass, chile and garlic on a street stall in Thailand, you are getting an insight into that country's authentic heart.
