the national dish of Brazil, black beans cooked with fresh and smoked meats and accompanied by traditional side dishes.

Don’t rush off, join our after-work get togethers.

Top tips, advice, technical know-how, photo ideas… and a glass of something cheery. Our series of informal chats are tailored to fit in with your busy lives. Travel Geeks: Rush Hour is just an hour long, and offers you the chance to hear from our experts, share a drink and join in the lively debate.

In this event, our panel discusses food tours: Which ones offer the most authentic cuisine? And how do you avoid the tourist traps?

Sometimes it’s better to discover a place through your stomach, and whether it’s through the barbecues of Nashville or on a tapas trail of Seville, you can dig deep into a destination’s history and culture through its larder.

Our panel will answer all your questions about where to go, what to do and how to do it. All you have to do is come armed with a curious mind, your burning questions and any ideas you’d like to discuss.
