Many people consider themselves to be foodies and food is one of the reasons why they enjoy traveling. France, Italy, and Germany, these countries are known for their food, but there are so many other places to visit and enjoy great traditional foods. It’s time to think outside the box.
4 “Outside-The-Box” Foodie Destinations
Here are four places that you likely never even thought of traveling to for food.
Israel is a place that most people associate with religious pilgrimages but is so much more. It is a wonderful land with wonderful things to see. Food is one of them. This is a largely Jewish country with a large Arab population as well. This blend creates wonderful marketplaces with lots of different foods.
These markets bring together people and an array of delicious fares. Rice, garbanzo beans, nuts, beef, lamb, spices, and labneh cheeses. There is deliciousness to behold from stall to stall.
Lush green hills dotted with Baronial castles full of ancient history is a wonderful backdrop for a foodie’s getaway. Haggis, shortbread, locally produced jams and butters, whiskey (naturally), cranachan, scotch broth, and clootie dumplings are just some of the foods that Scotland has to offer. Enjoying these dishes in a local pub with the people of Scotland is the way to go in order to get an authentic feel for Scotland.
Yes, Poland. Traditional Polish food is a hearty fare that is going to fill you up and not follow the rules of a diet. Pierogis, bigos stew (also known as hunter’s stew), Rosol (traditional chicken soup), and sausages are some of the staples of their cuisine.
One great idea to experience in Poland is a great food demonstration on the preparation of traditional pierogis. It is one place where you are not going to find yourself still hungry after a meal.
Iceland is a land where fire dominates. The Icelandic people have found a way to harness that power, even when it comes to food. For example, they use geothermal power to bake delicious geothermal bread. This bread is made in geothermal bakeries in gravel ovens powered by the earth. It leaves one wondering what else they use geothermal power for, in terms of their cuisine.
Food brings people together. We gather around tables and share meals with friends, family, and loved ones. These wonderful meal traditions are carried out around the world. In order for a foodie to get a real feel for what a country has to offer, they should enjoy the food in a traditional way; in a local pub, café, or marketplace. Mingle with the locals and share worldly stories with people that you would have never been able to meet otherwise.
