Our Tailormade team have travelled the world and sampled delicious dishes from Santiago to South Africa. Here are their top picks from their travels to inspire you.

Sarah Phelps, Tailormade Regional Specialist has two suggestions:

After a busy day exploring Petra we recommend a cocktail in the cave bar next to the Petra Guest House, followed by the Bedouin dish, mansaf – goat or mutton slowcooked in yogurt and served with rice, yummy! If you want to learn how to make it for yourself, I recommend the Petra Kitchen cookery class, it's great fun!

It is not so much the food that is remarkable in Africa but the location of where you can eat. Most camps or lodges offer private bush dining. Usually located in a secluded area of the bush, the staff will light a camp fire and set up your private candle-lit dinner table. Africa has amazing night skies and there is something truly magical about dining out in the wilderness, under the stars, listening to the sounds of the bush.

Samantha Manning, Tailormade Regional Specialist suggests:

In central and south India, I highly recommend a thali. It’s the perfect way to try a little bit of everything, usually served with rice, naan or chapatti, dhal, a vegetable dish and a meat dish. However they vary all over the country, some have chutneys others have a salad. Also in the south, try a masala dosa – a crispy fried pancake filled with potato and vegetable masala eaten for breakfast or lunch.

Claire McCrum, Tailormade Regional Specialist suggests:

I recommend a lunchtime visit to the beautiful Wayra Lodge located in Urumbama, in Peru’s Sacred Valley. Here you can enjoy a Peruvian barbecue-style buffet lunch while relaxing on the outdoor terrace and watching a traditional Paso horse demonstration. It’s a great way to break up a busy day or enjoy as part of a leisurely exploration of the Sacred Valley.

Hannah Cuss, Tailormade Product Executive suggests:

Cala Restaurant in Lima’s Barranco district was incredible. Overlooking the ocean, it’s a trendy restaurant in a prime spot for watching the sunset and the food was fantastic, the best lomo saltado I had on the whole trip. Others said the ceviche was pretty good too! It’s not cheap, think UK prices, but it’s definitely worth it.
