Trying new culinary experiences while traveling can enhance any vacation and make it that much better. Yes, touring around and going to any countries main attractions is all very important why traveling somewhere new. However – if you are going to go all the way – then you better not be eating at the tourist spots. Many people get lost and don’t know where to go to eat. If you want to immerse yourself in a true, new culinary experience then you have to go where the locals go. Keep reading to check out our first #FeelTheChill feature for why you should explore new culinary experiences.
Our #FeelTheChill feature today is Becca, who traveled for a month around Europe and immersed herself in new culinary experiences while traveling.
“This summer in Florence, Italy I really wanted to get myself to try new foods instead of always ordering the same thing. Something I would do at the restaurants was tell the waiter/waitress to order for me and surprise me with whatever they chose from the menu! It was such a cool way of expanding my food/taste palette and trying new dishes I wouldn’t usually pick myself!”
Stop Ordering The Same Thing
When you go traveling – you may not realize it but you can end up ordering the same thing if you love it. In order to explore new culinary experiences, you will need to make a change. I mean of course you can have a good burger, pizza, and pasta but you need to try something new. Look up a dish that the place you are visiting is famous for and order that. If you hate it – then don’t order it again – but if you love it then you can add it to foods you love!
Make The Locals Order
New culinary experiences can start with asking the locals to order for you and tell you where to go. This is such a great way to get to know the place you’re traveling better and go where the locals go. Furthermore, to enhance your new culinary experience – ask your server to order for you and get the food that they suggest off the menu. This is such a fun way to explore new foods, and try something that you didn’t even know existed! Check out more local restaurants and culinary Events in Glasgow here!
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Exploring new culinary experiences may be difficult for those who are picky. It can also be hard if you are not the type of person to try a lot of new foods. However – you need to get out of your comfort zone if you are going to be traveling to make the most of your experience. You will come back to tell so many more stories about the places you ate where you were the only tourist in the restaurant. You can also share your fave new food and try to make it back home and even share with your family and friends really weird experiences that will make for some great laughs. It’s all about going outside of your comfort zone and experiencing new things! Check out more new experiences and culinary Events in Liverpool here!
