Food and wine

Latin American gastronomy is among the world's most exciting and creative, with distinct regional cuisines, a blend of historic and geographical influences. We can show you the best.

Latin American gastronomy is among the world's most exciting and creative, with several distinct regional cuisines, a unique blend of historic and geographical influences and a growing number of internationally acclaimed chefs. Add to that a long history of wine making, now coming to fruition as Chile and Argentina secure their place amongst the most celebrated of New World wine producers, and South America has all the ingredients for a truly mouth-watering food and drink holiday.

A food and wine holiday in Central and South America offers outstanding dining, that’s fast-becoming the norm across a once overlooked continent for food lovers.

Peru is now justly famous for its extraordinarily diverse and original cuisine, and the capital Lima has gained a reputation as the continent's gastronomic epicentre. Meanwhile Argentina is a country that really knows how to live life to the full: steak to die for, vineyards harbouring fine wine by the barrel load and an indulgently sophisticated restaurant scene are just some of its many culinary delights. Brazil offers an array of world-class restaurants, Chile is a treat for seafood lovers and Mexico's cuisine impresses with its authenticity and intense, fresh flavours.

Whether you choose to go gourmet or seek out Latin America's tasty and totally unpretentious street food, there’s something to excite every palate.

Embark on a gastronomic holiday in Peru, which allows you to savour and get acquainted with Peruvian cuisine, as well as sample some of the local beverages such as pisco, and local wines. A taste of Peru holiday takes you to Lima’s markets and on cookery lessons, followed by a tour of a local vineyard and wine tasting, a visit to the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu.

For lovers of wine, our Food and wine: Vineyards of Argentina and Chile is a blissful journey, where you will stay at a few of our favourite wineries in the golden wine-country of the eastern and western slopes of the Andes. Visit cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, take a winery tour and tasting in Cafayate, visit wineries in the Mendoza region and join a culinary tour of Santiago.

In Central America it’s Mexico that draws the attention of food-lovers. Get to know Mexico City, Puebla and Oaxaca and discover the complexity of flavours and exotic recipes of Mexican street cuisine, from markets to the end products on street stalls on our Mexican Street Food holiday.
