World EATinerary: Three Excellent Reasons to Travel for Food

food-pairing
“A recipe has no soul. You, as the cook, must bring soul to the recipe.” –Thomas Keller

It has been said that food is the ingredient that binds us together. And according to James Beard, it is a common ground and a universal experience. From this standpoint alone, we can see how food plays a significant and even pivotal aspect in our lives. After all, we consume it on a daily basis and at times, food has been considered to be an indulgent experience that although banal, can be quite extraordinary. Today, with the culinary atmosphere reaching new heights, food preparation has evolved. In fact, with aspects in food preparation that has never been explored before (and with advancements and innovations in gastronomy), we can safely say that the way we dine today is so much different than we did decades ago. With food being a ubiquitous experience that every single one of us happens to enjoy, the concept of food traveling was engendered. And for years now, individuals do not only travel for the place but for the foreign food as well.

It has been said that to truly get to know a foreign place, one must discover it through their senses—with taste playing a fundamental role. In this regard, we do not only immerse ourselves in a country through our sights, but explore it with the sense of taste as well. After all, a little known thing about our palate is the fact that not only would it heighten an experience, but it would make it memorable as well. So, go ahead and indulge yourself and gorge yourself with all the glorious food offered in a food trip to Pampanga or elsewhere. In any case, if you have wondered why people travel for food, take a gander at the list below:

1.) Inspiration for culinary endeavors

Sure, you can easily get information from a foreign recipe books but information and inspiration are two very different things. The former simply tells you to do while the latter encourages you to actually do it. Food is visceral experience that how a particular dish should taste cannot be accurately translated through the pages of a cookbook. You need to savor the dish yourself in order to fully appreciate it. Taking in the aroma of fresh ramen or hearing other diners slurp it are both things a foreign cookbook can never capture. And if you have this budding desire to pursue a culinary endeavor yourself, seeing the action for yourself would be enough to motivate you to actually push through it.

2.) It takes you out of your comfort zone

Being in a foreign place means exposing yourself to a whole new array of food—some of which are unavailable at home and some you would have thought of trying. When you are in a foreign place, you tend to be a little less guarded about your food choices and would be willing to sample things you might not have tried back at home. In this regard, the dining experience takes you out of your comfort zone and you might be surprised how well you would actually like it. Traveling opens your palate to a myriad of authentic flavor profiles and notes that you would have missed out on had you not given it a try.

3.) You will meet people who love to eat as much as you do

While some people have little to no regard for food, there are also some who would say they have a passion for it—a food enthusiast if you may. Traveling to foreign countries for the food gives you an opportunity to meet and connect with them. More often than not, these people would convene and would plan where their next group dinner would be. Furthermore, these groups tend to have cooking classes that would suit their preferences and tastes. However, if your schedule does not allow you to participate in these culinary and food excursions, go for the alternative of taking part in culinary tours instead.
