Foodie Themed Gap Years

Cooking your way around the world with these amazing culinary Gap Year Adventures. We have all instagrammed a meal or two, but for some people, food is more of an obsession. If the ability to combine your love of food with your gap year travel plans sounds too good to be true, this is the page for you!

The obvious choice is to sign up and make a specialist cookery course part of your plans. As well as making the food, you will learn skills ranging from sourcing ingredients to pairing food with wine. These cookery courses are often residential and may count towards the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. The chalet cookery courses could even help you land a ski season job.

If you are simply looking for places to travel where you can eat great food, you really are spoilt for choice. Top foodie destinations include India, Vietnam, China and Malaysia, but why not time your trip to coincide with some of the world's biggest food festivals - Pizza Fest in Naples, Savour in Singapore, Canada's Ribfest, the huge Vegetarian festival in Thailand, or South Africa's annual food and wine event.
