My Husband and I are researching vacation destinations that are full of history and also have a very diverse food selection! We both have a love for art, history and food and would love to find something that includes all of the above! I kind of have a 'Rachel Rays $40 a day' type of tour in mind, that would include both the history and food sampling... We are interested in more laid back cities such as Amsterdam, anywhere in the Caribbean, etc. If anything exists like what I've described, I'll take any suggestions you may have! Thank you!
Last year my husband and I visited Prague and went on the most amazing food tour with Jan and Zuzi from Taste of Prague. They took us to try some of the best food Prague has to offer and we had a walking tour with a bunch of history thrown in along the way. They are so passionate about food and Prague and it absolutely shows.
Another wonderful food experience we had was on Bali at the Paon Bali Cooking Class. You can read my recap on my blog here. Another couple who is truly passionate about food and their country. You start with a trip to the busy Ubud Market, tour the family's rice paddies, then actually go to their home and cook with them, and it was the best meal we had on Bali.

We are landing in Amsterdam when we travel this fall..it is NOT an inexpensive place to be.. The hotels are crazy expensive! We have traveled all over and this is the highest we have seen prices for a room! There is history here, the Anne Frank House is probably the most known..your best friend would probably be a Rick S travel book..or any good reference book. Good luck! Let me know if you find anything extraordinary!
I would look into St. Martin. It's both French and Dutch and has the best food selection in the Caribbean.
Go on a cruise for under $ 40 a day, explore history in the day and eat all you can on the boat.

What about a bit of an unknown, nut nevertheless mind blowing destination: Tallinn. Paul gives very inspiring food tours inspired by both Estonian and Nordic cuisine. Estonian cuisine as such is a melting pot of many cultures, such as Russian, scandinavian and German. https://www.everaround.com/experiences/42--tallinn-food-tour

You could have a dream holiday in Italy For me there is no place in the world that combines art, history, culture and cuisine in a better way. Food is regional, so if you love seafood, risotto, beef, cheese, charcuterie, simple food, gourmet food, great wine you will be superbly catered for. I would highly recommend Umbria Tuscany Lombardy or Puglia especially.
