Travel encompasses many experiences but few are more tied to the cultural heritage of a nation and a culture than the local produce and products that are the basis of the local cuisine. Whether dishes have been passed down through generations or reinterpreted in relation to contemporary tastes, the food of a country often provides the most memorable experiences of a vacation.
