Here are three of our favorite travel food destinations which allow you to enjoy fresh ingredients, seasonal menus and excellent local wines – enjoy.
1. Ballindalloch, Scotland
Indulge on a feast of locally sourced ingredients at Ballindalloch Castle on our Country Roads of Scotland journey. Home to the Macpherson-Grants since the sixteenth Century, it is now one of the finest examples of a classic Scottish Baronial Castle. You’ll be welcomed to the estate by a member of the Macpherson-Grant family or the Ballindalloch Trust team, before exploring the castle and its grounds. Food involves a delicious afternoon tea of homemade scones, locally produced butters and jams, with homemade cakes and chocolate crunch.
2. Mali Ston Bay, Croatia
A key stop on our Country Roads of Croatia trip, you’ll experience life on the seas as you sail along Mali Ston Bay and witness a demonstration of the process of cultivating oysters. Once you’ve learnt how to gather the oysters you’ll witness them being opened in the midst of an oyster farm before trying out the tasty treats as part of one of our Farm-to-Table experiences.
3. Warsaw, Poland
Don’t just taste a region’s delicacies, learn to make them for yourself with our selection of food demonstrations.
