FOOD AND DRINK
One of the best parts of travel is discovering new foods and drink. A food and drink tour with Undiscovered Destinations will have a focus on the culinary specialities of the country or region that you are visiting. These culinary experiences could be visiting a small family vineyard in Moldova, learning how to make a traditional curry in Sri Lanka or exploring the coffee plantations in Colombia.
Strange as it may sound, there is so much more to a food and drink tour than the actual food and drink! These are cultural exchanges, meeting local people and learning from their ways, widening your perspective and maybe pushing yourself a little bit outside your comfort zone.
Most of Undiscovered Destinations food and drink tours featured below are available as either our small group tours or as a private tailor-made holiday. As always, our expert travel consultants can guide you through the options available to you and help you decide which is the best food and drink tour for you.

Why food and drink tours?
When you think of food and drink tours, the late great Anthony Bourdain captured exactly what we try and distil in our holidays when he said “Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonald’s? Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria’s mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head?”
Every culture, every region, and even every town and village has its own culinary speciality. Whether it is Middlesbrough and its world famous Parmo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parmo) or something that has become more ubiquitous, such as a Madras curry; if you want to know more about a place, then you need to know about the food and drink that comes from there.
Undiscovered Destinations food and drink tours will take you off the tourist trail and deep in to the culture of the country that we are exploring. Few people have ever travelled to the ancient wine region of Kakheti, in Georgia, which is arguably the original home of all viticulture. For any budding sommelier the chance to taste the exquisite wines produced there is a unique experience.
If you travel with us in to the Middle East and visit Lebanon, you will have the privilege of staying in a monastery in the lush Qadisha Valley. Here there is the opportunity to cook with locals and we will also enjoy the magnificent food and wine of Lebanon that is produced in the fertile Bekaa Valley.
The food and drink tours featured on this page are designed by our skilled travel consultants who have spent the time locally to research and test these tours. At times there may have been a bit too much testing but that is the thing with food and drink tours, you are supposed to over indulge slightly and remember that it is a holiday. Cheers!
