Fresh flavours are key in Vietnamese cooking

Taste your favourite takeaway in its original country

The Brits love a delicious takeaway – whether it be an Indian curry, Chinese dumplings or an Italian pizza.  Why not visit the country of origin of your favourite meal and taste the authentic recipe?

 

Find out what's cooking in Vietnam on a mouth-watering 11 day culinary discovery tour. Beginning in the north, the adventure begins with a visit to a top-notch restaurant in Hanoi before travelling to beautiful Halong Bay where you will feast on local seafood delicacies.  Stop in the enchanting cities of Hue and Hoi An and take part in the popular hands-on Red Bridge Cooking class, buying Vietnamese ingredients at the local village market and learning about the Tra Que organic herb gardens.  The tour ends in Saigon after sampling traditional foods and home cooking in villages along the Mekong Delta.

 

Find traditional Italian food in Rome... and not just pizza

Take a gastronomic journey
in Italy – how can you not love the nation that brought us pizza and pasta? Italy's culinary attraction goes further than its dishes. It's the unique style: slow-cooked food, with fresh ingredients, traditional dishes and some seriously good wine.  Visit Rome’s Capo Boi, a secret of locals and celebrities, situated in the glamorous neighbourhood of Coppide, offers the best mussels and clams in town as well as delicious pasta dishes and a spectacular mixed fish grill.  Or splash out at stylish Milan’s Just Cavalli Restaurant & Club, owned by the famous fashion designer himself, Roberto Cavalli.

 

Chinese dumplings are a delicious and popular meal

Head to Shanghai for dumplings to die for
China’s Din Tai Fung, launched more than 40 years ago, is renowned for its delicious xiaolongbao soup dumplings - regularly voted some of the world's best. Other perfect little parcels served here include the pork dumplings and the shrimp and pork shao mai.  Don’t miss Beijing’s Duck de Chine, if duck and pancakes is your takeaway favourite. This award-winning restaurant serves up the best carved duck in the city dipped in homemade hoisin sauce, stuffed into steamed pancakes and served alongside an array of Cantonese dishes.  A chic Bollinger Champagne bar adds an extra touch of class to the experience.

 

Trying an authentic curry in Mumbai should be on everyone

Tickle your taste buds
with a fantastic authentic Indian curry at Culture Curry in Mumbai, featuring exquisite dishes sourced from all over Southern India.  Vegetarians are particularly well catered for.  Try the rajma curry - a delicious kidney and green bean curry in coconut gravy, or Artipoovu Vada - dumplings made out of banana flowers, served with peanut powder and coconut chutney.  You won’t be disappointed.
