If you're really ready to delve into England's gourmet heritage, we recommend getting hands on with a foodie experience. From foraging courses on the coast and wine tasting, to baking delicious sweet treats with a baker, these ideas are the perfect way to experience our five regions' foodie favourites.
Meet some of the producers behind each region's favourite foods and take a foodie escape one step further by getting stuck in and experiencing it for yourself.
Head to the coast, forage and cook yourself up a delicious meal for a taste of local food that's as fresh as it gets. Or why not learn the secrets behind one of the Peak District & Derbyshire's favourite treats, with a pudding making experience in the very bakery where they were first created?
At the Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop you can actually learn the secrets behind the Bakewell Pudding.
Take a foraging tour with Fergus the Forager and discover the plants, seaweed and fungi of the countryside and coast, before cooking it up for a delectable dinner.
