    Mexico! I've only been once and scratched the tip of the iceberg - so much more to eat and learn

  • Siegal  on  11/6/2015 at 12:21 PM

    So many places! My top 3 places I would love to try the food are India,Ethiopia, and Italy

  • monique.potel  on  11/7/2015 at 10:12 AM

    most likely Italy Lombardy first and the sardigna

  • lsgourmet  on  11/7/2015 at 11:00 AM

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

    Spain since I took four years of Spanish in high school and fell in love with the food.

  • Shinej  on  11/7/2015 at 11:25 PM

    Greece would be my choice

  • Mrsheap  on  11/13/2015 at 4:00 PM

    Italy, no brainer!

  • fayt  on  11/13/2015 at 5:05 PM

    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  11/13/2015 at 5:36 PM

    India such great variety

  • specialdeb01  on  11/13/2015 at 6:14 PM

  • reneeg  on  11/13/2015 at 8:51 PM

    Morocco. I adore Middle Eastern food

  •  on  11/13/2015 at 10:19 PM

    France - every single region!

  • Therese  on  11/14/2015 at 12:40 AM

    Turkey, It's pomegranates, battered mussels, grilled fish, kokorec, chicken pudding - what a cuisine.

  • JosephineS  on  11/14/2015 at 4:57 AM

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

  • Bakerd  on  11/14/2015 at 3:46 PM

    Cooking has always been my passion. The places I'd love to visit and eat in most, are Italy, Morocco and Thailand

  • gjnmc  on  11/14/2015 at 10:28 PM

    Japan - I love street food like Tako Yaki.

  • swimbaby26  on  11/15/2015 at 9:13 AM

    I'd like to go to Changsha, China and eat the food my mom makes to compare her recipes.

  • jenniwa  on  11/15/2015 at 10:24 PM

    Hard to choose. It's between Greece, Sicily, Argentina, Turkey, Cuba, and Japan

  • Sannalee  on  11/17/2015 at 5:29 PM

    The Mediterranean coast from Turkey to Greece and Italy - a true culinary pilgrimage!

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  11/18/2015 at 12:10 AM

    I'd like to visit Spain to try their food.

  • becchapman  on  11/18/2015 at 5:33 AM

    India. Love curries & so varied

  • matag  on  11/19/2015 at 1:09 PM


  • phylliscaroline  on  11/20/2015 at 6:42 PM

    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  11/20/2015 at 6:49 PM

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

  • dirtgirl  on  11/20/2015 at 7:23 PM

    Denmark is top of my foodie list.

  • Deneenm  on  11/20/2015 at 8:15 PM

    Morocco is definitely at the top of my dream list

  • Lizandjo  on  11/20/2015 at 9:22 PM

    Iran - to try more Persian cuisine

  • Toni03  on  11/20/2015 at 10:59 PM

    A fantastic collection!

  • VanessaJ  on  11/21/2015 at 12:32 AM

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

  • jfwiliams  on  11/21/2015 at 2:25 AM

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

  • Thermomixr  on  11/21/2015 at 4:55 AM

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

  • Trinite39  on  11/22/2015 at 1:49 AM

    Austria is my First choice; France is my second !

  • Akarbowiak  on  11/22/2015 at 5:49 PM


  • pokarekare  on  11/24/2015 at 6:47 AM

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

  • DesiKim  on  11/25/2015 at 12:02 AM

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

  • amos  on  11/25/2015 at 1:06 AM

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

  • mdblake2011  on  11/25/2015 at 5:48 PM

    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  11/27/2015 at 11:24 PM

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

  • TheSpicedLife  on  11/28/2015 at 12:04 AM

    India. Except I am terrified I would get sick. And in fairness, Thailand was tops but I went. :)

  • contest718  on  11/30/2015 at 12:09 AM

    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!!
