Food and Wine Articles

One of the most enjoyable features of world travel is the opportunity to sample the cuisine of other countries and to join in the celebration of food, wine and companionship.

In Spain it is called "la sobremesa," the conversation and conviviality of a good meal, but in all countries it is the same. Coming together to eat and drink the bounty of the earth is an essential part of the human experience.

Wherever you go around the world, the food is one of the memories that will be the most vivid and the most unique to your destination. 

In these articles, what's on the plate is first and foremost!
