Dine Like a Local

Travelling to another country allows visitors to become immersed in the history and culture. But it’s not just about seeing the sights; local food, drinks, traditions, and the environment in which the food was grown helps make a country unique and creates its identity.

“A country’s cuisine is its landscape in a cooking pot” – Josep Pla
