Food and holidays

For me, part of the pleasure of a holiday is food!  Exploring markets in the sunshine, eating outdoors, finding little gems of cafes and restaurants, food I’d never eat at home in England!  This photo shows cake and coffee in a little cafe in Vienna, definitely what I needed when sightseeing!

PICT4555There are lots of posts and websites online about culinary adventures on holiday.  As always, with so much to read, where do you start?  I’d suggest finding a destination first and then reading about it’s food and restaurants.  Online magazines such as www.cntraveller.com , www.wanderlust.co.uk, and www.natgeotraveller.co.uk are a good place to wile away a few hours.

If you prefer to explore a city while there is a lot going on, try going during a food festival – for example,  Calentita, June 2016 Gibraltar.  I found http://www.tastingeurope.com/fairs-festivals/calendar a useful resource her.

For drink, you can’t beat a beer festival and these take place all over Germany plus there’s also one in Prague.  More food, wine and beer festivals happen worldwide – but you have to start somewhere!

Why not go the whole hog (pun intended) and tour around south west France – including wine tasting, oyster tasting, and truffle farm experience.  With 8 nights’ accommodation, driver/tour leader, breakfast plus 4 evening meals, plus entrance fees where necessary.  Price from £1624 per person.

For more information about any of these, just get in touch .  Hope I’ve whetted your appetite?
