Raise your hand if you think the best part of traveling is sampling the local food and drink? Sitting at an outdoor café, sipping on a glass of wine and snacking on some tapas, people watching. Doesn’t get much better than that. Yes, we all are missing travel this year and the excitement that comes along with exploring new foods and places. What gift do you get that special foodie who misses traveling? I have a few delicious ideas.
Gifts for foodies who miss traveling
When in Rome…
A few weeks ago our family participated in a Zoom Pasta making class together. This was no ordinary cooking class, it was live from Tuscany, Italy. We easily set up our family pasta making class via AirBnB Experiences. Ahead of time, we received our list of ingredients. We gathered remotely from 4 different locations which allowed 3 generations of our family “be together” while cooking.
Our hostess, Lucrecia, was delightful. We chatted about our shared love of Florence and all things Italian. She was so gracious about helping the grandparents to make sure they were following along with the recipe. At the end of our 90 minute class, we had a delicious bowl of Cavatelli pasta to enjoy with our Italian wine and family. Oh and did I mention, that a live Opera singer popped in to entertain us with her incredible voice?
If you are looking for a unique interactive gift for that foodie in your life, AirBnB Experiences offers fabulous classes showcasing foods from different cultures around the world. The chefs are local and live from the countries they hail from. This is what helps to make the cooking experiences genuine and have that local flair. From Pasta and Opera in Italy to Paella in Spain to pastries in France, there are classes to feed every appetite and travel memories.
Why not gift your favorite foodie a cooking experience to remember this year? Pair that with a fun apron, favorite bottle of wine, set of wine glasses or pasta bowls? You get the idea! Pick your theme and pair that with some fun accessories. Your foodies who love to travel will really appreciate the gift. Hopefully, they ask you to join in too!
