4 MORE FOODIE FABULOUS REASONS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD
EXPLORE DESTINATIONS THROUGH CUISINE
Julia Child once said, “People who love to eat are always the best people,” and if you agree, this email is for you. Whether you’re waiting to gather around the table for Thanksgiving or preparing for the shopping madness of Black Friday, let this moment of travel inspiration be a mouth watering escape to daydreams of tasting flavors around the world. Below are four delicious itineraries for travel experiences with foodies in mind.
DINE WITH THE LOCALS
If you’re looking for a unique, immersive way to taste the world with locals, this is it. Eatwith is the world’s largest community for authentic and luxury culinary experiences around the world. Join a dinner party in an elegant Paris home, an Italian feast with a Roman family or a gourmet cooking class in Tokyo and get to know new cultures through their quintessential dishes. These events take place in both private homes and exclusive venues and are specially curated for both individuals and groups.
FLAVORS OF PORTUGAL & SPAIN
At the beginning of this week long river cruise itinerary, you’ll visit Graham’s Winery to enjoy a tasting of Port, Portugal’s famous contribution to the world of wine (pictured above). If you prefer to get more active, we recommend hiking to the winery for magnificent views of the Douro River. Onboard, the inspired menus reflect each new destination and pair perfectly with hand-selected wines. Sip and savor the view with approximately 100 other guests as you sail AmaVida toward private cellars, historic wineries and stunning vineyards where more tastings and pairings await. Private Perks: Treat yourself onboard with a $100 credit per stateroom on select itineraries.
TASTE THROUGH TUSCANY
ACCESS CULINARY TRIPS
For starters, this six day culinary tour is not available to the general public, which somehow already makes the food taste better, doesn’t it? You’ll travel through the region of Tuscany, beginning and ending in Cortona. Highlights include a hands on traditional cooking class, a cheese tasting of raviggiolo, ricotta and pecorino at a family-owned farmhouse, a pasta making course where you'll learn the difference between tagliatelle and pappardelle, and a truffle hunt in a “tartufaia” (the woodlands where truffles are found). Can’t get enough? Ask about the three day Florence extension. Private Perk: Tour is exclusive to our clients.
COMPLIMENTARY GOURMET BREAKFAST
Did you know that our status with Dorchester Collection means you will enjoy free gourmet breakfast every morning day of your stay? This gives you the chance to experience some of the most renown hotel restaurants in the world, like the Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée in Paris, pictured above. With naturalness at the forefront of this inspired menu, you'll find dishes made from local, organic vegetables and grains sourced from small producers. In addition, you'll often receive a dining credit to put toward that interesting bottle of wine or indulge in another gourmet meal. Private Perks: Complimentary breakfast, early check-in, late check-out, complimentary upgrade, resort credits, etc.
