Travel has always been a great way of tantalising the taste buds with the unique flavours of each country we visit. Most of us like to try the local food on holiday, but why not learn how to cook it, too? Some tour operators now offer gastronomic holidays that highlight the traditional food of a country — whether it’s grasshoppers in Mexico, octopus balls in Japan or haggis in Scotland. Experienced guides can show you where to get the best local street food and take you to food markets, showing you how to choose and cook the ingredients for your own dinner.
