Food and wine

Latin American gastronomy is among the world's most exciting and creative, with distinct regional cuisines, a blend of historic and geographical influences. We can show you the best.

Latin American gastronomy is among the world's most exciting and creative, with several distinct regional cuisines, a unique blend of historic and geographical influences and a growing number of internationally acclaimed chefs. Add to that a long history of viticulture, now coming to fruition as Chile and Argentina secure their place amongst the most celebrated of New World wine producers, and this richly varied region has all the ingredients for a truly mouth-watering holiday.

Outstanding dining is fast becoming the norm all across what was once an overlooked continent for food lovers. Peru is now justly famous for its extraordinarily diverse and original cuisine, and the capital Lima has gained a reputation as the continent's gastronomic epicentre. Meanwhile Argentina is a country that really knows how to live life to the full: steak to die for, vineyards harbouring fine wine by the barrel load and an indulgently sophisticated restaurant scene are just some of its many epicurean pleasures. Brazil offers an array of world-class restaurants, Chile is a treat for seafood lovers and Mexico's cuisine impresses with its authenticity and intense, fresh flavours. 

Whether you choose to go gourmet or seek out Latin America's tasty and totally unpretentious street food, there’s something to excite every palate.
