Destination: Food Maps
Where did our favorite foods originate
Food Maps – where did our favorite foods originate? Have you asked this question? Food and travel are the perfect pair. When we are off on a getaway we want to try the local dish, the national meals and all the recommended things to eat. It’s top of the list. That’s part of the fun in travel.
But, have you wondered how certain dishes become a national favorite? Did the ingredients originate in that country?

However, food does have a trail of it’s own and food loves to travel too.
