How does one truly experience a place when traveling? It’s usually a combination of our senses that gives us a full understanding of the place we are exploring. We see the beautiful views and stunning architecture. We hear the language of another culture and the hustle and bustle of a foreign city. We feel the ocean breeze or the tropical heat. But perhaps the most underrated way we really experience a place is through the tastes and smells of the local cuisine.
Culinary Latitudes, LLC, knows that food is a major component of what defines and brings a culture together. Their travel experiences showcase the nexus of food and place by highlighting all aspects of a destination’s culinary traditions.
Culinary Latitudes’ upcoming travel experiences celebrate cuisine from all over the globe. The first trips they offer, Night Rhine and Moselle Fairytales and Rhine Castles and the Swiss Alps, take you right through the fairytale land of Germany and the breathtaking beauty of the Swiss Alps. The food here is as refined as the culture. Centuries of perfecting dishes and aging wines and cheeses have added an air of sophistication to the region’s culinary landscape. You’ll find perfectly executed plates of beef tartar, schnitzel, and goulash. Make room to indulge as well, as there is no shortage of delicious wine, beer, fondue, and chocolates!
The next excursion offering is the Greek Isles. The food here is as ancient and storied as the millennia old civilizations. With all the sunshine and perfect growing conditions, it’s no wonder this place has a rich bounty. All that sunshine and sea air has brought the world the finest olive oils, vine ripened fruits and vegetables, breads and cheeses. Don’t even get us started on the fresh seafood and wine! This is the Mediterranean diet before it was a fad. Imagine grilled seafood, meats, and Greek salads-all perfect and simple. It’s ancient, it’s luscious, and it’s what you want!
Another culinary experience Culinary Latitudes features is a “Night Japan in Bloom”. The food of Japan is an amazing representation of the culture and place. The idea here is to take the most pristine ingredients and keep them as close to their natural state as possible. This mirrors the Japanese harmony between advancement and respecting and preserving natural beauty. This is the culture that invented sushi. If you’re a fan, this is your place. The offerings don’t stop there. Imagine viewing the splendor of the cherry blossoms while enjoying a beautiful tea ceremony. Beauty and harmony, that’s Japan in imagery and cuisine.
The final luxury culinary experience offered is a tour of the Mexican Riviera and Bimini. This region is lively, tropical, and vibrant. Picture sitting on a Caribbean beach, eating a deliciously spicy and bright ceviche, sipping a cold Mexican beer, and listening to lively music. The food is lively, inspired, and unfussy, just like the area. If you’re day-dreaming of vistas and equally beautiful meals, Culinary Travels should be your next luxury experience!
