Foodies of the world rejoice, we’ve compiled a list of the ultimate destinations to head to for fresh flavoursome dishes this Spring.

Ditch the winter blues and say hello to spring with a trip in the UK or further afield to try some of the world's most delicious food!

London

While the sun is creeping out and al fresco dining re-awakens, London is the perfect place to wander through a street market and tantalise your taste buds. Camden’s Market on the Lock, the Southbank Centre Food Market and the famous Borough Market are particularly good for both their variety of stalls and their locations. Tuck into artisan cookies baked fresh the same morning, freshly shucked oysters straight from the shell, carefully crafted duck confit burgers and much more! 

Australia

As the scorching summer comes to an end down-under, a pleasant and fruitful autumn takes hold of the Australian countryside. Opt for the South-West Margaret River area for dazzling vineyards, bespoke breweries and an array of locally produced cheeses and chocolates. It’s the perfect place to indulge with the finer things in life. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a nice juicy kangaroo steak!

India

An increasingly popular time to visit, early Spring provides some of the best deals for a holiday to India. The monsoons are still holding off but the temperatures are hot, so pack plenty of sun cream and embrace the colourful, sunny streets. Famous for its curries, India is a must visit for the spice addicts, and for those with slightly milder taste, the rich, tastes of ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cumin are also frequent and delicious.

Tuscany

Its wineries galore in the rolling Tuscan hills, and let’s be honest, what list about food would be complete without mentioning Italy? Aside from the excessive amount of wine you’ll be quaffing here, you’ve got to eat as the Italian’s do. So pile your plate with plump sun-ripened tomatoes, soft mozzarella and fresh basil, then douse it in lashings of olive oil and mop it all up with a big chunk of crusty bread. With a side of homemade pasta and a gelato to finish you’ll be in food coma heaven.

Barcelona

By avoiding the summer months on your trip to Barcelona you avoid the crowds and enjoy some of the best weather this beautiful Spanish city has to offer. Plus, with tapas, paella, tortilla and fine wines all on offer, you’ll be grinning from ear to ear as you sit in the balmy sun and gorge yourself silly. In between eating, don’t forget to pay visits to the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell for examples of the incredible work of the god of architecture, Gaudi.

Mexico

There doesn’t seem to be a more crowd pleasing cuisine than Mexican here in England at the moment, but none you’ve ever tried will quite match up to the real deal. Far from simply the burrito – though they are as hearty and heart-warming as you’d expect – real Mexican food is as much about the fresh tabbouleh salads, juicy mangoes and succulent steaks. A must try is a huge plateful of traditional Huevos Rancheros for breakfast. Oh, and a margarita or two, although maybe not for breakfast!

Galway

What might seem like a slightly rogue choice to some is another’s paradise. If you love emerald green countryside and fresh rural air then this one is for you, so take your loved one and prepare for an achingly romantic weekend getaway. After a long day exploring, cuddle up in a cosy pub for a pint of Guinness before finding a quaint little restaurant that serves the best oysters you’ll ever eat – so fresh and so flavourful.  Staying close to home doesn’t have to be boring and Galway proves that. Besides, if it’s good enough for Ed Sheeran, it’s good enough for us!
