A destination’s cuisine is an important part of a culinary vacation. This kind of holiday is about travelling for the purpose of enjoying and exploring local gastronomy, apart from the appreciation of scenery, culture, adventure and shopping.
A culinary journey is about a unique eating and drinking experience at the travel destination. It does not mean having gourmet food or dining luxuriously but rather appreciating authentic local food along with gaining knowledge about the ingredients, their source and their procurement. It also includes cooking or demonstration classes, farm and factory visits, vineyard visits and food & drink festivals.
