South American food tantalises Aussies

Australian travellers don’t just visit South America for the adventure and nature. More and more they are exploring the continent through food and wine. according to Contours Travel MD Ted Dziadkiewicz.

Two of Contours Travel’s best selling culinary tours are seven-day ‘Ecuador Gastronomic Tour’ and the seven-day ‘Chilean Wine Valleys’ package. The Ecuadorian tour exposes travellers to traditional Andean cuisine, where recipes date back centuries – featuring dishes such as roasted guinea pig in Chaltura and Choclo Cancha (a corn based snack).

The Chilean tour, on the other hand, covers the largest, oldest and most beautiful wineries including the Errázuriz and Matetic Wineries as well as vineyards in Colchagua and Maipo Wine Valleys. Tour participants also get to taste wines from the famed Aconcagua Wine Valley.

“With such diversity in taste and dishes, we believe South America is the next foodie destination for Australian travellers,” Ted said – 1300 135 391.
