If you’re like us (and if you’ve read this far, you just might be) you might choose a destination because it has great food. That’s how we’ve ended up in cities or regions that don’t have a great reputation for travel in general.
This is how we ended up traveling to Genoa, Italy, to learn how they make pesto. It’s how we ended up in Sapporo, Japan, in search of great crab. It’s why Scotland appealed to us – to learn about local food and drink.
A food destination is a place to go to specifically for culinary travel. Of course there are other things to do there besides eating, but food takes center stage. It’s our way to learn about the local food culture and to experience a destination by traveling through our stomachs!
