The Easter break is nearly upon us, which means it's time to start making plans! We think, what better occasion to go on a gourmet food adventure than this time of year, which is dedicated to feasting and all the good things in life? It's also a great excuse to escape the rat race for a few days, do some exploring in your own backyard, and discover some hidden gems close to home.
Thanks to our clever, passionate and award-winning friends at Spicers Retreats we don't actually have to put that much effort in to researching where to go, what to do, and how to please our taste buds while we are at it! Spicers have a whole array of gourmet getaways, designed to tempt every kind of foodie, from the novice to the most discerning. All you have to worry about is what to pack…
