While some may view food as just an energy source, I think it’s safe to say that most of us take pleasure eating delicious foods -maybe sometimes too much. Cooking food together can be a great way to bond with your family, friends, or partner. When we meet up with friends we haven’t seen in ages, it’s usually over dinner and drinks. Food always finds its way to the center of our lives. So why not celebrate how amazing it is and try new foods by joining a food tour? russian food store
New York food tours might be famous around the country, but you can find them in any major city and across the globe. Sometimes when living in a city for so long you feel like you’ve been everywhere, tried everything. But the best food tours will surprise even the most seasoned natives. Before you commit to a group, make sure they’re keen on actually taking you to places away from all the tourists. The last thing a native wants to do is hang out in all the well known places with mobs of people!
Even if you aren’t a native, walking food tours are a great way to learn about the culture and diversity of a new city. Not to mention your friends will be amazed that you knew about these little hidden gems and you were successfully able to avoid all the predictable areas. Unless you’ve memorized the Frommer’s Guide, it’s hard knowing what places are worth checking out. If you’re only in town for a few days, you don’t want to waste time eating bad food. Well, no one ever wants to eat bad food…
While most food tours cater towards adults, there are groups that provide children’s tours. They will most likely be shorter in length with a bit less walking and will sample food that even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy. It’s also a wonderful way to expose your children to more types of food so they can hopefully learn to appreciate it when they are older. Being able to eat a wide variety of food means there’s rarely a fight about where to eat and it will make you a more cultured person.
Food tours are often thought of as a group activity, one that you involve all your friends in doing. If your friends’ palates aren’t as willing to sample a variety of foods, it’s a great way to meet new people who adore food as much as you. It’s a fun and comfortable environment and there is always the subject of food to talk about.
When you need a little adventure in your life, and really really good food, spend a day on a food tour. Come with an open mind and an empty stomach!
