New Foodie Trips from Butterfield & Robinson
The active tour specialist Butterfield & Robinson will slow down and smell the roux with a series of new trips in partnership with the food magazine Saveur. The first of three new group trips will depart this fall and include an eight-day October trip to Peru with a focus on ceviche in Lima and Andean barbecue and earth-oven preparations in Cusco, en route to Machu Picchu. Two other four-day domestic itineraries, taking place in November, include a trip to Napa and Sonoma Valleys, with visits to cheesemakers, olive oil producers and wineries, and one to New Orleans for meetings with chefs, cocktail tastings and explorations of swamp-based spices and ingredients.
