The new trend is toward a deep food experience: exploring the origin and culture giving birth to the food, not merely the food alone.
These trips strive to provide a memorable balance of activities, culture, and cuisine. You might ride a conventional or electric bike from one prime foodie destination to the next in Italy or Spain, fish for salmon and gather edible herbs in Alaska or the Yukon, or go clamming and cook on wild rhubarb-covered rocks in Patagonia. Obviously, trips of this sort are not cheap (think $5,000-$10,000 for two weeks, not including airfare), but they can provide a profoundly immersive experience and lifelong memories. In some areas, you can even add this kind of encounter to a vacation yourself: travel services like NOSHtrekker in Singapore help travelers dine at the homes of locals who share their interest in art, history, and other disciplines.2
