3 Spain¡A comer!
Discover the secrets of traditional Spanish cuisine, an array of unique cuisines heavily based on seafood, particularly in coastal regions, but also meat dishes made from lamb, beef, etc. are very popular.

Spain’s history and as well being a seafaring nation brought many culinary influences to the Spanish cuisine of today with thousands of recipes and flavors.

One of the world’s most famous restaurant is in Spain: elBulli was a Michelin 3-star restaurant near the town of Roses, Catalonia, Spain, run by chef Ferran Adrià.

elBulli has been described as “the most imaginative generator of haute cuisine on the planet.

The restaurant is closed by now, to reopen as a creativity center in 2014. You better get a reservation yesterday.

4 JapanJapanese cuisine is not only Sushi and Sashimi, for its gastronomic specialties it uses some of the most expensive ingredients. There is for example the blue-fin tuna, for which Japan’s high-end restaurants pay a king’s ransom to purchase it. Or the most expensive beef in the world, Wagyu – Kobe beef, or Matsusaka beef, its consumption welcomes you to the beef-eaters heaven; try it as shabu-shabu, steaks, sukiyaki, or beef sashimi.

Dare to enjoy? Japan’s cuisine offers also thrilling experiences like that of the consumption of Fugu fish. Fugu can be lethally poisonous, therefore it has to be carefully prepared to remove toxic parts and to avoid contaminating the meat. Fugu is served as sashimi and chiri-nabe (hot pot).
During the winter months you can enjoy nabemono or nabe, a very traditional way of cooking and eating in Japan.

France is a synonym for exceptional culinary arts and famous chefs. The French kept, refined, and reinvented the very best from all culinary influences of the last 2000 years.
France offers a state-of-the art cuisine and the world’s best wines. But in recent times it lost some of its international reputation because many restaurants are using more often ingredients that are factory-made or processed, instead of using fresh ingredients.
The French government is trying to reverse the trend by awarding chefs who uphold culinary traditions with the title of ‘master restaurateurs’. But so far just a few have qualified for the title.
Therefore France has lost its number one rank in “Travel Destinations for the Gourmet Traveler”.

Travelers in a hurry to get to Cusco and Machu Picchu often landed and blitzed right past the capital. But recently this coastal city has been riding a wave of growing fame for its gustatory pleasures. Lima is now drawing a new flock of visitors who travel all the way to Peru just to eat”.
