Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 26, 2014
No matter where travelers go, one of the best aspects of a vacation is tasting the local cuisine. In order to help travelers make the most out of the fall vacation season (a time that is well known throughout the world as being a prime time for food festivals) John Giduck is sharing his top picks for food adventures around the world.
1. Tasmanian International Beerfest, Tasmania, Australia
Of all of the Oktoberfest celebrations in the world, many would never think that Tasmania, Australia would be home to one of the globe’s premier celebrations of everything beer-related. From November 14-15, nearly 12,000 hop enthusiasts will make their way through the beer garden with over 300 beers from around the world that is nearly the size of two football fields.
2. Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival, Palm Beach, Florida, USA
Foodies in the Sunshine State look forward to this annual festival to taste some of the best food that the state has to offer. Throughout the event are several specialty cocktail and hors d’oeuvre receptions, and diners can even enjoy a five-course premium wine-pairing dinner. There are even cooking classes, so this is one festival that John Giduck recommends bringing the whole family to. On the last night of the festival, the activities hit a crescendo with a cooking competition and tasting.
3. White Truffle Festival of Alba, Alba, Italy
Italians really love truffles, and for more than a month, the small town of Alba plays host to one of the largest truffle festivals in the world. Visitors from across the globe will enjoy wine pairings, cooking demonstrations, a beauty pageant and even live jazz music performances. John Giduck shares that spectators can even watch the invitation-only Truffle Auction where some of the best truffles sell for over $130,000.
4. Galway International Oyster & Seafood Festival, Ireland
On the last week of September, the Oyster Opening Championship starts in Galway, Ireland; an event that has been going on every year since 1954. Throughout the four-day festival, visitors can taste fresh oysters, enjoy a parade and listen to some of the area’s finest musicians.
