Food Around the World: Feast your Eyes

Food guides worldwide will tell you a large part of traveling involves eating local delicacies. Some eats will be more bizarre than others — you can tuck into roasted grasshoppers in Thailand, witchetty grub (moth larvae) in Australia, or Puffin heart in Iceland — but each will leave you more deeply connected to the country.

Food tour guides in France will take you to some of the best places for authentic French favourites like fresh crepes, rich fondues and fluffy soufflés, and food tour guides in India will take you to bustling markets and unique eateries where you can enjoy warm naan bread, flavour-packed curries and exotic fruits. Their goal (and the shared goal of food guides around the world): to give you the most delicious experience of their locales, and the stories they tell during the meals only add to the enriching journey. (And, of course, we can’t forget about the delicious deserts around the world too.)

Although it is interesting to try fast food joints in different countries — McDonald’s in China is very different from McDonald’s in England, and the same goes for Burger King in Egypt versus America — it’s the truly local dishes (the fish and chips in London, the haggis in Scotland, and the Irish stew in Ireland) that complete a tourist’s voyage.

Rick Mereki, Tim White and Andrew Lees are three adventurous men who prove just this. Over 44 days, they visited 11 countries, took 18 flights, traveled 38,000 miles, and ate many a local meal, documenting each along the way. The result: this compelling (but mostly mouth-watering) video montage of their unique eats.
