Our favourite foodie destinations
Destinations that will make you hungry for more
Eating is one of life's greatest pleasures and, for many of us, a big part of our travels. Food is the soul of a destination and there's nothing more exciting than the bustle of local markets awash with the vivid colours of fresh produce or the intoxicating aromas emerging from restaurant kitchens.
Whether it's fishcakes and rum punch in Barbados, scones with clotted cream in London or sun-warmed tables groaning with fresh Tuscan produce, these are just some of our favourite foodie destinations we can't wait to tuck into again.
Whether you're in the mood for a barefoot beach bar or an elegant dining experience, Barbados is a treat for the tastebuds. At The Cliff - the island's most famous restaurant - sample freshly caught seafood and expertly crafted cocktails against panoramic sea views and spectacular sunsets.
From Bangladeshi street food to Sunday pub lunches, innovative Michelin-starred restaurants and teeming weekend markets, London's food scene is a vibrant and varied hub reflective of its cultural diversity. For a truly British experience, head to Claridge's to sip tea and savour sandwiches, scones and cake - in short, quintessential afternoon tea.
Nothing sums up Tuscany more than its lyrical landscapes and exquisite fresh produce. From family-run pastificio tradizionale, where artisan pasta is cut by hand, to an abundance of rolling vineyards like Tenuta Moriniello, take some time out to sip a glass of Chianti and make the most of this dreamy slow-paced life.
