I don’t care about shopping. Or museums. Or even getting that all-important Instagram photo. At least, not that much. No, for me the best part about travelling is the food. Each nation seems to have its own unique flavours and dining customs, and there’s nothing I want to do more than try every single one of them.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be taking you on a tour of all the essential foodie experiences every traveller must try around the world. Up first, it’s the land of cheese and wine, Europe.
1. Switzerland – Raclette
You thought I was going to say fondue, right? Don’t get me wrong, I’d never turn away a big vat of melted cheese, but some raclette would go over even better. For the uninitiated, raclette is a type of Swiss cheese, traditionally heated over a fire or on a specially-designed hotplate. The melted, gooey goodness is then scraped onto potatoes, gherkins, dried meats and more. Pair it with a glass of white wine and you’re pretty much in heaven.
