Taste Each Destination on Our Culinary Tours


Eat like a local

The quickest way to the heart of a culture is through its cuisine – and on our Culinary tours, you’ll have the chance to unlock the secrets of each fascinating destination you visit by tasting regional flavours and locally sourced produce. From Italian farmhouse feasts to intimate family-prepared meals, there are plenty of delicious dishes to savour!


Hands-on food experiences

Back-Roads tours are peppered with unique culinary encounters that allow our guests to roll up their sleeves and join in – including truffle hunting experiences in France’s Péchalifour region, Polish dumpling making classes in Kraków and Moroccan cookery lessons in Aït Benhaddou. Plus, there’s always the chance to taste the fruits of your labour afterwards...


Visit world-famous restaurants

Connoisseurs of fine food themselves, our Tour Leaders will introduce you to an array of renowned culinary establishments throughout the duration of your tour. Highlights include Rick Stein’s famous Seafood Restaurant in Padstow.


Take home culinary memories

Engage with the traditions of each region you visit by learning the secrets behind authentic local dishes at cooking demonstrations throughout Europe and the UK. With your new-found culinary abilities, you’re sure to impress your friends and family back home – whether with homemade Black Forest Gâteau or Italian inspired pizza.


Restaurants in beautiful settings

One of the most special parts of dining with Back-Roads is enjoying the unique ambience of each carefully selected restaurant. From a sumptuous meal at an agritourism farm in Dubrovnik and more, with Back-Roads, the views from the table are just as memorable as the food.
