What is a food tour?
Food tours are routes composed of several stops whereby travelers enjoy tastings, pairings, and highlights of a particular cuisine. They allow visitors to explore a destination through their senses as they are introduced to a country's culinary legacy. Ingredients that have undergone thousands of years of transformation and domestication shine a light on the civilizations that first dared to introduce them to our palates. Trans-oceanic adventures, the rise and fall of different eras, various migratory movements, and shifting geopolitics can all leave their mark on a country's cuisine through the fusion of ingredients and cooking techniques. An excellent food tour will offer a deeper understanding of the customs, culture, and traditions as narrated by the evolution of a country's dishes.
