    I'd love to go back to Sicily, the food varies so throughout the region and is so different from the rest of Italy.

    Greece. Being of Greek heritage but born in Australia I'm limited in being able to learn authentic Greek cooking. I would love to experience authentic Greek food, in Greece wrapped up in culture.

  • stemar  on  November 13, 2015

    India such great variety

  • specialdeb01  on  November 13, 2015

  • JosephineS  on  November 14, 2015

    I would love to visit France again and travel further into the countryside.

  • matag  on  November 19, 2015


  • phylliscaroline  on  November 20, 2015

    Currently it would be Mexico because friends have raved about it and I think it's hard to reproduce the true flavours of the food elsewhere.

  • ljskop  on  November 20, 2015

    Italy! Emilia Romagna (near Piacenza–Bobbio–where my cousins live) or Piemonte, or anywhere in Italy for that matter.

    Italy as there is so much more to Italian cuisine than we are generally exposed to

  • jfwiliams  on  November 21, 2015

    Sardinia as I have been told by my husband and son that it is absolutely beautiful – food and scenery.

  • Thermomixr  on  November 21, 2015

    Japan, a country that I have not visited. So many wonderful flavours & foods to be explored with such great subtlety

  • Akarbowiak  on  November 22, 2015


  • pokarekare  on  November 24, 2015

    I would love to know more about regional Italian cooking, but a close second would be Middle Eastern cookery

  • DesiKim  on  November 25, 2015

    Italy. I've visited so many times, but I've barely scratched the surface

  • amos  on  November 25, 2015

    Sardinia , rustic Italian food and I anticipate rugged scenery with delightful coastline .

  • mdblake2011  on  November 25, 2015

    I would love to visit Sardinia and Corsica, and always want to check out the food beforehand. Next preference would be Turkey, having visited in the Seventies, but during winter when produce was limited. Seasonal summer fruit and vegetables there sound amazing.

  • JanScholl  on  November 27, 2015

    India. I think it's the most vegetarian friendly country in the world.

  • TheSpicedLife  on  November 28, 2015

    India. Except I am terrified I would get sick. And in fairness, Thailand was tops but I went. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • contest718  on  November 30, 2015

    I would love to go to Paris or Italy to sample their cuisine, that has always been on my bucket list. I really want to take a world tour and visit as many countries and sample as many different types of cuisines as possible though. I was lucky to win a trip to Portugal this year that we will take in Aug 2016 and I will get to sample authentic Portuguese cuisine yippee!!

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
