From exclusive cooking classes and culinary demonstrations to breaking bread with locals, we seek out the truly immersive culinary experiences. These are a few of our favourite ways to savour the flavours of the world.
For many families, special occasions and holidays are shaped around the meal. Whether it’s grandma’s chocolate chip cookies or your father’s signature casserole, bonds are established and preserved through food and drink. When you go on your next travel adventure, you’ll get a passport to experience these significant culinary traditions from around the world.
Drinks provide the palate with another means to taste a region’s unique culinary contributions.
A great cocktail or beverage jumpstarts a meal while at the same time revealing a country or city’s true flavour. Whether you fancy a pint of Guinness or prefer the lightness of an Aperol Spritz, the drinks you’ll savour on your travels cater to a variety of tastes. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite signature drinks that make a destination sparkle.
