Is there any travel experience that is not made better by adding a sprinkling of local flavours? All across America, cities and the countryside are embracing the traveller who seeks to learn more about new kitchen techniques and sample different foods. Year-round, such travellers are often keen to research seasonal produce, regional recipes and culinary secrets. Discovering a selection of courses and festivals is easy. Narrowing down the choice? Not so simple. Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu around the United States.
