  1. One of my favorite experiences was eating at a Bedouin restaurant in Jordan. We ate under this HUGE tent, and the bread was beautiful. I also liked the kava ceremony i participated in in Fiji.

  2. Definitely a one night in Porto. Where stumbled on this small, literally mom and pop shop right near the water. Service was so homey and had the best grilled octopus ever, super fresh vegetables and tons of wine! Reminded me what love of food was really about! Also cheap to boot!

  3. Definitely was the gourmet horseback riding tour I took in Provence, France, offered by Hidden Trails. Every meal was fantastic, made by our own personal chef, who also taught us about French cuisine. On the all-day ride he even organized a 4-course picnic lunch. On the non-riding rest day they took us to Aix-en-Provence to eat at a famous bistro. The riding was beautiful too…through the french countryside and villages. Truly an amazing trip.

  4. My all-time favorite travel food experience was enjoying all of the culture and food in beautiful Sicily last March! I also tweeted and liked the Facebook page!

  5. Yak Yeti Yak, a Nepalese restaurant in Bath, England. My 79-year old mother had married a man (my father) with a fear of flying and a meat-and-potatoes-only diet. As a result, she had never been to Europe, and it was a big thrill for her to go out with a friend for pizza or Chinese. After nearly 50 years of marriage, my father must have started to feel guilty about all this, because he asked me to take her on a trip to London and Paris. Knowing how boring her diet was at home with my father, I loved taking her out for new tastes–and Nepalese cuisine was new to me, too. Well, we were both blown away by our meal at Yak Yeti Yak. Although we opted to sit at tables, rather than on cushions on the floor (she was afraid she wouldn’t be able to get up), the food was absolutely delicious. Neither one of us knew exactly what we were eating, but the flavors were incredible. Even though later in the week we went to Paris, the meal at Yak Yeti Yak won the best meal of the trip award hands down!

  6. I loved visiting Greece because of all the amazing food I ate over there. But I recently I grabbed some freeze dried peaches in Charlotte and enjoyed them on the ride back to Boston.

  7. I haven’t done much international travel (would love to change that); but one of my favorite domestic restaurant finds is Stan’s Idle Hour in Goodland, FL ( Out of the way, local place with a quirky and cool vibe. Yummy food, too!

  8. Would love to have two free tickets to this show. We just like going
    out for lunch, and he hasn’t traveled in many years. It would be
    lovely to go on a cruise again.

  9. My favorite food restaurant in Florida is Sweet Tomatoes..I just Love the variety of food they offer and there Amazing Salad Bar. My daughter is getting married in June and needs to know where she’s going for her honeymoon.
