Tasting the local cuisine should be an important part of any holiday, and Back-Roads Touring ensures that particular emphasis is placed on food and drink within our tours. Our included Culinary Experiences enable you to enjoy truly authentic, locally sourced and produced cuisine. Dine at iconic restaurants run by award-winning chefs, take cooking classes using regional ingredients, visit local farms, enjoy food and wine tastings at local producers and combine two passions with foodie walking tours. Furthermore, throughout our tours you’ll dine in small, authentic restaurants, frequented by the locals, and guaranteed to give a true reflection of the tastes of the region.
One of the aspects that unites all of our group holidays is the chance to connect with your destination’s history and culture through its cuisine. A number of our escorted tours follow a culinary journey from seed to serving dish.
Unforgettable visits are made to farms and vineyards, to learn the traditional processes of making some of the regions’ most famous produce; guests can take part in cookery lessons taught by local experts; and some tours offer exquisite dining experiences that will appeal to even the most sophisticated palettes.
