It’s said that an army marches on its stomach. So does the intrepid explorer of both new territories and novel culinary happenings. Try dishes that challenge your perceptions of what you like and dislike. The world is generous, and so are the delights of the palate.

A Moveable Feast
Yes, a Michelin starred restaurant is one of the reasons that we love to travel. However, there are so many ways to engage in cuisine culture while vacationing. Whether you sample food from a food cart run by the proud proprietor, sit on the beach and nibble snacks, or procure a loaf of bread, a bit of cheese, a jug of wine, and share it with thou, eating in the open air is scrumptious. Everything tastes better outdoors. Beverages, too, take on a special zest. Drink up and let the good times roll by sipping coffee on a patio, lemonade on a terrace, cocktails in a rooftop lounge, or beer in a garden.
The Ethos of the Table
Lay your ethics on the table and make ethical culinary choices a part of your journey. Patronize eateries serving organic and locally-sourced ingredients.
