Today’s food lovers have many choices when it comes to learning how to cook the great cuisines of the world. Those who like to travel can choose specially designed food tours that include cooking experiences with chefs well versed in local dishes and preparation methods.
Personalized sessions led by the experts make all the difference when it comes to learning the subtle distinctions between regional cooking methods. Professional companies like Culture Bites focus on teaming travellers with cooks that are knowledgeable in a country’s unique ingredients and cooking styles.
Food tours also take visitors to see cultural highlights and foodies get behind the scenes with the locals to discover the ingredients used, why they are chosen, where to buy them, and what is involved in creating specialty dishes.
Vietnamese cuisine is prized worldwide for its healthy ingredients, variety of dishes and interesting flavours. Some of the country’s best chefs are among the guides on a Culture Bites food tour, and they show participants how the “eyes eat first” in Vietnam. They also explain how foods are selected at the local market, and how they are prepared and presented to give the best appearance, freshest tastes and maximum health benefits.
Such tours are all carefully planned to make the learning experience a delight from dawn to dusk. Each component of a Vietnam food tour is designed to match different participants’ needs, whether it’s dining in a beach hut by the sea, or visiting local markets in a major city to gather the best cooking ingredients.
Detailed research goes into every aspect of the tour to ensure a long-remembered experience, and every element can also be pre-planned by participants with expert input for the ultimate tailor-made culinary adventure.
