Savour the Journey: A Culinary Adventure

Travelling is not just about visiting new places and seeing spectacular sights—it’s also about immersing yourself in vastly different cultures. Of course, we believe there’s no better way to do this than by dining across the globe.

The Spice Trail: Thailand

A paradise for food lovers, Thailand offers an exciting blend of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy flavours. In Bangkok, try the famous street food, Pad Thai. With its irresistible combination of peanuts, lime, and chilli, this stir-fried noodle dish is a must-try. Those who love seafood should head to the coastal regions of Phuket and Krabi. Here, you can enjoy fresh fish grilled to perfection, served with a fiery chilli sauce. And remember to try the Tom Yum Soup, a hot and sour soup with fragrant spices and herbs.

Pasta and Pizza Paradise: Italy

Every culinary journey is complete with a visit to Italy. In Naples, savour the original Neapolitan pizza with its thin crust, rich tomato sauce, and creamy mozzarella cheese. In Bologna, relish the classic Spaghetti Bolognese, a meat-based sauce served with spaghetti. Tuscany is home to countless rustic culinary experiences. Here, you can taste Panzanella, a refreshing bread salad, and ribollita, a hearty vegetable and bread soup. Take advantage of the local wines while you’re there.

A Spice Odyssey: India

India’s diverse culinary landscape is a testament to its cultural heritage. The country’s cuisine is known for its abundant use of spices and herbs, which give it distinct flavours and aromas. In the northern region, you can indulge in butter chicken, a creamy tomato-based curry with tender pieces of chicken, best enjoyed with naan, a type of fluffy bread. Moving south, masala dosa, a thin, crispy pancake filled with spiced potato, is also delicious. If you want to snack like a local, try the famous chaat in Delhi or biryani in Hyderabad, a fragrant rice dish cooked with aromatic spices and meat.

The Land of Sushi: Japan

Japan places great emphasis on the quality of its food, which is evident in its cuisine. Tokyo, the world’s most Michelin-starred city, is a gastronomic dream. Try sushi at Sukiyabashi Jiro, where traditional sushi transforms into art. But Japan’s culinary prowess is not just limited to sushi. The world-famous ramen is a staple in Japan. In Kyoto, you can taste kaiseki, a traditional multi-course meal that showcases seasonal and local produce.

A Melting Pot of Flavours: New Orleans

At the heart of New Orleans’ allure is its food. The city’s dining scene is a testament to its melting pot of cultures, with Creole and Cajun cuisines leading the charge. These culinary traditions, born from the fusion of French, Spanish, African, and Native American influences, offer complex and comforting flavours. Make sure you dig into iconic dishes such as gumbo, a rich and hearty stew filled with seafood or meat flavoured with filé powder, and jambalaya, a spicy rice dish cooked with chicken, sausage, and sometimes shrimp.
