Part 1: Best Dishes In the World

If you’re a member of my email list, I’m sure you’ve heard about the international food tour I’ll be doing over the next few weeks! We’ll travel to countries like Germany, Greece, Israel, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Jamaica to checkout their national dishes and compare the best of the best.

WARNING: This series is LONG – 5 posts to be exact, however it’s easy to follow because I’ve separated the list into regional cuisines (for organizational purposes). If you ever have the opportunity to take an “EATcation” to one (or all) of these regions, PLEASE document every moment of it and shoot me an email! Feel free to comment/review the dishes you’ve tried, and let me know if you feel there’s anything I’ve left out! Happy Travels!
