Here’s the truth: The food is GREAT in Britain. Long gone are the days of bland cuisine and mushy peas.
On my last visit I enjoyed fresh, organic produce at local farmers’ markets, dined in cosy gastropubs and globally recognized restaurants and discovered a vibrant scene of fantastic street food. But with recent dollar-to-pound exchange rates it’s not a cheap place to eat.
Hungry travel lovers can’t help but indulge their appetites in their wanderings. Here are five hotels that have turned that adulation into—what else?—a trip to the kitchen.
Travaasa Hana: Modern Hawaiian cuisine is a fusion of many diverse ethnic flavors brought to the islands by immigrants throughout the region’s rich history. The island is paradise for gourmets, with abundant fruits and vegetables grown from rich volcanic soil, a wide variety of high quality, fresh fish and locally sourced cattle. At Hana, guests will learn about Hawaii’s many food staples and try their hand at some of the island’s most revered local dishes.

CUSCO TRAVEL TIP: The Lobby Bar at the Hotel Montasterio offers short pisco seminars each evening where you can learn about the pisco-making process, various types of grapes and different varieties before indulging.
