Foodie Vacation Destinations

If you were going to take a vacation solely to experience great food, where would you go.

For me I think I would have to pick Italy first. My second choice would probably be Greece.

Luckily I already live in the food heaven Italy (nyaaaneee nyaneee booo booo GB )

For a new, delicious culinary experience, I would pick home of my second favourite cuisine, India.

Greece, no thought needed for that one!!

Italy is next on my list also... or Amsterdam just for the cheeses.

I think I'd go with Italy too. France would be good too, all those crepes and pastries!

Definately Italy, France, and Greece for me. I've never tasted a "real" italian pizza from Italy, but I have to say that the best pizza I ever had was in Boston. The sauce was so good! Though I havent experienced alot of the food in NY, I do know there is so many different ethnic foods there, so that would be a great place to experience almost any type of food you crave.

These are very interesting choices. Brazil I can see, but I am not familiar with the cuisines of Finland, New Zealand, or Iceland very well. I know a little about food in Finland and New Zealand (very little), but nothing about Iceland. What types of things would you be looking to eat there Brianschef?

Absolutely Italy! I love Italian food. Then I'd make my way to Spain to get me some Meditteranean food.

I particularly love the food from the South of France.... I've been on a couple of cookery courses in the region. And the wonder of the Greek islands is that the same dish is cooked so differently on each island.. some add more of this, less of that - amazing, cos they ALL think their version is THE definitive one.
