We consider ourselves lucky when we get to taste a country’s authentic dishes by traveling there ourselves. And if we’re even more fortunate, we can expand our horizons beyond the big capitals to explore the regions where many of a given country’s culinary traditions originate. Is there a more ideal situation than tasting local cuisine from the source?
