Destination Suggestions

Early in 2014 every website and travel guru has their best destination list for the year. I've taken a look at many of their suggestions and wanted to share some places and reasons to go there.

This is a list I found that works for foodies...

Marrakesh, Morocco for its Tagines. These classics are simmered in the conical clay cookware and often include food such as chicken with preserved lemons and olives or lamb with prunes.

Hong Kong, China apparently is home to the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant.

Turin, Italy has so many reasons to visit if you are into food. It's home to Salone del Gusto, the Slow Food organization's biennial extravaganza of cuisine. Of course, there's also abicerin, gianduja, Barolo wines, and truffles.

Lyon, France is known for its more than 20 Michelin starred restaurants in the city but also for its small, family run eating places. It's a foodie paradise.

New Orleans, Louisiana offers food in the traditional Louisiana-French style to Cajun dishes to the mix of both. And, of course...there are those beignets.

More destinations will follow later...
