For Foodies : 6 World Food Tours To Look Out For

Published

on

Let’s face it; is there any other trait that unites us, humans better than our preferences towards food?

Surely, there’s none. And, while that stands, nothing delights an ardent food junkie than being part of perhaps the largest food entourage – World Food Tours. Through the food trips, you can get to sample different cities and cultures, make merry and perhaps get the best business ideas. The trips don’t have to be ‘Michelin or Lonely Planet-inspired.’

Sometimes, the best food stories are told after touring and eating at the ends of tiny alleys, hidden amid the clamor of simplistic markets, lost somewhere on the 3rd floor of an estate. Of course, the Anthony Bourdainx thing and the swashbuckling adventurers are absolutely inescapable. Basically, the best food adventures are a blend of the simple and suave and the innovative, sophisticated food crawls.

Let’s take a tour.

  1. Vancouver

There’s no other city where there’s a fantastic mix of creativity, immigrant cuisines, and the native seafood than in Vancouver. The Vancouver Foodie Tours is an outfit that sweeps through the entire city, even incorporating tantalizing Japanese hot dogs, hoisin chicken wraps, and the authentic tandoori naan. And, the best thing about the trip is, no guest is allowed to queue to get a bite!

  1. Venice

The magical Italian city seems to be a hub of everything beautiful, including perhaps the most fascinating cuisines. The Walks of Italy is nothing worth missing and even offers a rare glimpse of the native dishes that have been there for over a century. The Walks run through the Rialto Fish Market, Cicchetti, and heartier dishes and ends with Veneto wines and Prosecco on tap.

  1. Mexico City

If you even visit this city, don’t leave without visiting a “roving supper club,” or Club Tengo Hambre. Known for some famously delicious foods, CTH is reportedly serving over 20 million foodies per day. And, it is an ideal out-there food joint where you can get a bite of what’s rarely available at home. The best foods to taste during your food tour here include Huitlacoche Quesadillas, spinach and almond-flavored green Chorizo and, of course, Tacos.

  1. Lisbon

For once, think about pedestrian gourmandizing, but with flair of scholarly approach. Culinary Backstreets is proving to be yet another face of the upcoming World Food Tours, not just because it has spread to over 13 cities across the world, but due to the way the adventure is. It takes away foodies and food lovers from the classy hotels and gives them the best dishes and seafood affordably.

  1. Tel Aviv

Eager Tourist is proving to be a force that’s too hard to ignore amongst passionate foodies in Israel and all over the world. The tour covers the city’s three most vibrant outdoor food markets and, along with viewing Tel Aviv’s booming craft beer scene, which makes Eager Tourist perhaps the leading in the region. And, once there, never leave without interacting with the leading chefs, recipe developers, and food stylists.

  1. Los Angeles

Just imagine interacting with the locals, getting to know of their local cultures and almost everything in the different locations of the world?

The Urban Adventures by Intrepid Travel is the face behind one of the most famous adventure tour operator with multiple day trips and valuable experiences in minimal time in the US. And, of all the attractive features of the voyage, Half-day and full-day culinary tours seem to be earning the company immense amounts of plaudits.

If you can’t be in a position to tour each of the above food tours, try to be part of the following:

  • Toronto’s The Culinary Adventure Company
  • Puglia in Italy’s Southern Visions
  • Clandestine in New Orleans

Why Organic Food Is Going Mainstream

Published

on

One of the latest phenomena blossoming in the food industry is the changing consumer preference and the odds seemingly favoring those who love safe and chemical-free foods. The ballooning consumer demand is impressive granted that the bright star in the grocery business is a win-win for both the consumers and the growers. But, of particular importance is the reason people are going for these organic foods instead of the traditional ones.

Organic foods are nutritious with no chemical substances

Fueling the organic habit is the need for a better food alternative that puts nutrition and better health first. From plants to organic meats, all of them are perfect for those who would love to stay healthy and far from the many lifestyle based ills. Plants like beans, lentils, grains, nuts and seeds offer wide-ranging perks that keep us healthier while organic meat, fish, and other animal-based organic foods are also sustainable.

Animal welfare

Food production is largely an industrialized process that also employs a heavy use of chemicals for aroma and as preservatives. But with consumer awareness becoming an order of the day nowadays and animal welfare calls becoming more vocal via the mainstream media, use of chemicals in food production is dwindling. In fact, antibiotic-free meats, milk, and eggs as a result of better animal husbandry practices are not a new thing anymore.

Better for the environment

Much like animal welfare, environmental awareness issues surrounding food production isn’t a new idea today, although organic food growers are trying to make their efforts enough for their environment. The move is bolstered by the fact that sustainable methods of growing these foods and keeping animals also impact the environment positively. And, given that there’s no use of chemicals, it is indeed true.

Who buys organic foods?

students-1807505_1920.jpg

Getting these foods is becoming even easier, and prices are becoming more reasonable, and much of it is due to the large stores and foods grocers having them, including Wal-Mart and Wild Oats organic foods. And since the number of consumers in on a gradually rising trend, it isn’t hard to tell for sure who leads the line.

Millennial parents are the most tech-savvy and indeed health-savvy given that they occupy a massive 50% and even more of those who buy the organic foods. Generation X parents and baby boomers are other organic food enthusiasts, although it is the increasing number of organic food stores that serve as a perfect testament to the growing movement.

And what is fueling the habit?

Besides each of the above reasons, other reasons to try organic foods include:

  1. The rise of the many groups that connect over the web with intentions of emancipating the masses.
  2. Mainstreaming of veganism, without a doubt, gives rise to the organic food movement too.
  3. Fast food stores are starting to include organic food menus.

Do you buy organic foods ? Why do you do so ? Lets get talking.
