Looking for a Foodie/ Culinary Adventure?

FoodI love travelling abroad because I enjoy eating different foods……and seeing the way food is grown in other countries.  At the same time, did you know that food and culinary adventure trips are now offered for people who are interested primarily in that aspect?

Yes- travelling on a cycling trip through the countryside of Vietnam will mean you will see fields of food being grown, and eating local dishes in small family run restaurants- and often on cultural/ historical tours, cooking classes are included (i.e. how to make a mean marsala chai), but there are other small group tours that food is the primary focus. Over the next week, I am going to explore a variety of these trips, along with a couple of trips where food or wine is an important part of the tour- i.e. cycling through the vineyards of South Africa.
