The latest goings-on in the worlds of food, drink and travel
Are you a city or a country type? Are you happier in among the bright lights, or out across the rolling hills? Personally, I love the thrill of that urban buzz, but find that after a few days in a new city, I’m desperate for some space and solitude – something that isn’t always possible. If you’re clever, though, there are holidays that offer the best of both worlds – hip and happening cities with spectacular rural escapes right on their doorstep. And we’ve put together seven such standout examples for you in this issue. Turn to page 64 to see our picks.
Travel is all about embracing just that sort of variety, something that we try to do here every month. So alongside our Gourmet Traveller feature on the food trucks and urban farmers of Portland, and our lip-smacking recipes for gourmet sandwiches, this month you’ll also find the world’s most spectacular train journeys (topped by a route in Scotland) and recipes for Middle Eastern stews and soups.
Whatever your preferences, hopefully you’ll find there’s something for everyone in the following pages. As ever, tell us what you think – why not tweet us your thoughts and ideas?
