“A world of tastes for you to enjoy”, according to Philippe Gombert, international president of Relais & Châteaux on the first page of this magnificent publication.
A Taste of the world

The words of Philippe Gombert really do keep theirpromise throughout this guide from Relais & Châteaux.Leafing through this beautiful book means leafing through the world which presents itself to you, introducing continents, countries, people. The soul of a territory, its cultural richness, its terroir, its cuisine, its hospitality represent the taste of the world. The publication invites the reader, through many illustrations, to savour a region sometimes unknown or an unexpected scenery.

It is a true invitation to travel: with the hot air balloon over the valley of Göreme in Cappadocia, enjoying the charm of seclusion in New Zealand, British Columbia, where the mountains touch the sky, the shimmering colours of a preserved Morocco, a seducing Provence which exudes the scents of lavender.

These enchanting landscapes on all five continents are described by writers and lead to intoxicating flavours that the Taste of the World presents as a testimonial. By tasting the world, we accept the appeal to our five sense and trigger our curiosity to inhale the fragrances of a country and succumb to the ecstasy of its savours. From an infusion with white lotus flowers created by Kyoung-Won Park in her restaurant in Seoul to the seaweed served with scallops at Andrew Fairlie in Scotland, the chefs have always highlighted their region by disclosing the gems of their terroir.
