Traveling for food is something we all do, even if we don’t consciously think we are. Food is and always will be an integral part of traveling. You can experience the culture, learn more about the local traditions and get to know the people through food.
“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.” – James Beard

If you travel for food, there are typically many regional foods that you’ll want to try while you’re in a particular destination. A favorite way to experience a city is on a food tour. Gain insights on how their cultural influences their cuisine while strolling along the city streets. It’s a great way to find that ‘hidden gem’ restaurant only the locals know about and shop for those spices that create those dishes.
Another favorite way to expand your cuisine repertiore is to take a local cooking class. Hands-on cooking classes, cheese education class, chocolate exploration classes, even wine pairing classes all await you. Ever gone mushroom foraging in the forest? Or help plant rice starters in a Thai village before dining on lunch? All these experiences await and so much more.
