Luxury family holidays: Brits willing to try exotic cuisine
The idea that British holidaymakers are only interested in seeking out cuisine from home when on luxury family holidays has been challenged by new research from TripAdvisor.
According to a study by the website, Britons are the most adventurous people in Europe when it comes to trying exotic foreign delicacies, such as camel humps, jellyfish and sheep eyes.
Only 17 per cent of people from Britain said they would avoid such cuisine, compared with 64 per cent of Italian and 33 per cent of German respondents.
TripAdvisor spokesperson Emma O'Boyle told the Daily Mail that the results show that British travellers are keener than most to explore exotic delicacies on their luxury family holidays.
"It's great to see British travellers embracing local delicacies. For years other nationalities have derided Britons' reluctance to try new types of cuisine," she added.
According to an article on BootsnAll, some of the most intriguing exotic food from around the world include birds nest soup in China, fried tarantulas in Cambodia and snake wine in Vietnam.
