This blog is about the latest trend among foodies - Food tours. Read on to know more about planning a food tour. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PLANNING YOUR OWN FOOD TOUR: If you are a taste trekker who is planning to take a food tour, this blog is going to come in handy. Read on to know more about food tours - how to plan, what to do and expect. 1) WHAT IS A FOOD TOUR? A food tour is a guided tour to explore the local food and beverage scenario. Sometimes, it may encompass hands-on workshops too. Food tours, a raging trend for adventurous foodies in 2021, is an exciting way to sample the local cuisines. One can also get to know the place’s history and culture and how it influenced the feel and taste of the cuisine. 2) NATURE Every food tour is different. Typically, it is carried out in groups. But small group tours and private family tours are also becoming common. One could explore restaurants and food outlets in a neighborhood by walking or taking a tour by bus. Some food explorers prefer taking a bicycle while others opt for a personal car or cab. 3) DURATION A food tour typically lasts for not more than 4 hours. While some tour planners take diners on a one-day or few days culinary tour, families love to make it a one day affair (comprising breakfast, lunch and dinner) 4) COST Ideally, food tours will cost a person anywhere between $35 - $70. This may vary according to the duration or amenities offered. 5) FOOD OFFERED Mostly, food tours are inclusive of meals or testing samples that can pretty much satiate your taste buds and hunger. Paying for the food and beverages lies on the diner. If the tour is organized by a travel agency, the details of purchasing food would be clearly stated. If you do not find adequate information, contact the food tour detailer to know which food is a part of the offered package and how much extra expenses need to be incurred. 6) DRESS CODE Most often, food tours encompass a lot of walking. It is, therefore, essential to wear comfortable, layered clothes. Wear walking shoes that facilitate easy movement. Apply a sunscreen before setting out. Do not forget your sunglasses and a hat before you set out on the food tour. 7) If you are undertaking a food tour through an agency, check with them regarding the anticipated weather conditions and their tour cancellation policies. 8) ACCESSORIES You could carry a backpack or a tote for your wallet, mobile and other personal belongings. You could use it to carry home the purchases made during the tour. 9) AGE RESTRICTIONS Sometimes, children can be a part of food tours. But, if it is a completely foot-based, walking food tour, it could turn out to be physically strenuous for young children. Certain beverage tours will, obviously, deny permission to children who have not attained the legal drinking age. If you are taking a food tour via a tour agency, enquire with them regarding their policies and age restrictions. 10) DIETARY INSTRUCTIONS If you have any food items that you are allergic to or certain dietary preferences, have a detailed conversation with your tour agency even before you book the food tour. While some food tour spots may alter their cuisines or ingredients according to specifications, some may not be able to make necessary changes. But, it is wise to analyze the nature of the food tour and determine whether it will be suitable for you before embarking on it. 11) TIPPING THE GUIDE In the United States, it is usually a custom to offer a tip of 15 - 20% of the tour cost to the private tour guide. This also depends on the duration of the tour and the number of food outlets chosen. If it is a public or a group tour, you could tip the guide and the driver with one or two dollars each. Your tour agency could guide you on the appropriate tipping amount if it is an international food tour. 12) If you are planning your next vacation around food, keep this information in mind. Indulge in the dual bliss of a holiday and great food and cherish the memories created for eternity.
Here are ideas on how to spend time in a restaurant while awaiting the arrival of your food. Do try them the next time you visit a restaurant. WAYS TO KILL TIME IN A RESTAURANT TILL THE ORDER ARRIVES Scouring the internet for ideas on how to keep yourself engaged and kill boredom in a restaurant until the order arrives? Read on. It is not everyday that we eat out. We frequent restaurants not just for the food, but a wholesome ‘dining out’ experience. If boredom dominates the time you wait for your food, it defeats the purpose of having resorted to a restaurant for food. Although we dine out with friends and family, sometimes we just fall short of ideas on how to stay occupied or pass time till the order arrives. Even a 15 minute wait for the food might seem endless. Here, we have spelt out certain ideas that will certainly work in your favour when you are waiting with pangs of hunger in a restaurant. 1) Do origami If you are in a group, hand over tissue papers to the people at your table. Give them the name of an object that they are expected to recreate. Give them 5 minutes. Start the countdown. See how many of them are good at origami. Before visiting the restaurant, you could create a short list of 10 items that can be done through origami even by beginners. If cloth napkins are available at the table, you could also spend time folding them in different ways (either individually or as a group). Such creative exercises aide in keeping boredom at bay. 2) Find the missing lyric Select a popular song of your choice. Start playing it to your family or friends at the restaurant. Stop the music at a certain point and ask someone to continue singing from that lyric onwards. Whoever gets the highest score wins the title of ‘lyric laureate’. Ensure that you do not play your music loudly. It might annoy the others at the restaurant. If playing the music is not possible, just sing the lines to your fellow diners and ask them to find missing words. 3) Word connector Start by naming any object that you see in the restaurant. Each one gets a turn in mentioning another name or object that is in some way related to the word told by the previous person. This is a real brain racking game that always involves thought and reasoning. It can help you combat boredom and even before you realize it, your scrumptious food is already on the table. 4) Two sides of the tale Think of a short sequence involving two to three characters. You could even take up a scenario that the family actually experienced. State the situation to the people at the table and ask them to narrate how there could be two sides to the same tale. Co-diners could elaborate on what would be the consequences if the characters reacted in a thoughtful manner or impulsive manner. “What if mom had agreed to her daughter’s relationship?” “What if dad had resigned his job due to stress?” “Had the 18 year old boy become a breadwinner!” 5) Such storytelling exercises can actually help people look beyond situations and understand human psychology. If adolescent children are at the table, such stories can help them empathize with elders in a better way. 6) Snippets Do a pre-research before heading to the restaurant. Find interesting snippets about the locale, its history, the restaurant and cuisines that are unique to the place. You could let your family and friends know about these unknown, yet, interesting facts. 7) Tongue Twisters 8) You could pick at least 10 tongue twisters and ask people to tell them repeatedly at a great speed. It, definitely, will turn into a laugh riot and make you yearn for many more such gatherings outside home. 9) Silverware art Try using all the forks, spoons, knives and other cutlery available on the table to create an art masterpiece. You could create simple alphabets, small words or even certain kinds of art that your artistic fellow diners would appreciate. 10) Love notes Is there anyone who would not love being praised? Write short love notes about people who would be dining with you. Mention why they are very special to you. Also tell them why you always need them by your side. Narrate instances when they stood by you or stood up for you. Do not forget to film them so that such emotional moments are saved for eternity. Ensure you do not repeat them with the same crowd time and again. Make it a surprise always. Try it with different groups at different times. People would begin to love eating out with you. 11) Nicknames Identify people in the restaurant - either the staff or other guests like you. You and your friends could set out by bestowing them with nicknames. Remember to be funny during this exercise and not rude. This game is primarily to kill time and not demean people. 12) The long lost friend Ask someone at the table to volunteer and tell others about a friend who had been very close to their heart in the past and with whom they have completely lost touch. Ask them questions about why that friend or person is so special, what they would do if they met them in the future, what kind of a conversation they would have with each other. This can move many people to tears and help you lose track of time. You also help a person relook their past and express their hidden thoughts and emotions. These are a few ideas that we could think of. If you have other simple, yet great ideas that can be tried while waiting for food at a restaurant, drop in a mail to us or leave your comments below. Never permit your waiting time to overwhelm you with feelings of hunger or impatience. Good luck with your fine dining experience.
