If you’re in Santiago and want to know what people really eat, try a local food and drink tour that takes you through Santiago’s main market. The Vega and the buildings around it are a sprawling affair, with alleys and cross streets and friendly butchers occasionally holding up cow hearts, and a colorful assortment of fruit and vegetables. And I even though I live in Santiago, I decided to take a Small-Group Santiago Food and Market Tour Including Mercado Central, which is essentially a tasting tour of central Chile, with a splash of colorful stories, a brief historical overview, and a bonus walk through the flower market.

As the sky streaked orange and yellow, dusk found us in Grassdale National Park surrounded by hundreds of reddy-grey kangaroos in a feeding frenzy; they grazed unconcernedly as we moved among them, bouncing off across the tussocky grassland if we got too close. My husband and I had journeyed to Kangaroo Island, sitting off the south-west coast of Adelaide, South Australia, to see the kangaroos, koalas, Tammar wallabies, echidnas, seals, and sea lions that proliferate here and to sample the island’s famous hospitality. For us Brits it’s about as far away as you can get from Blighty, and it felt like it – remote, tranquil, and seemingly untouched by the 21st century.

Dark chocolate goodness melted in my mouth, and it was only 9am. Now this is how you begin a day right in Brussels!
The Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop started at 9 in the morning–a strange time to eat chocolate, but I figure there is never a bad time to eat chocolate!
The worn, fully-stocked bar glowed to my right as I entered the doors at The Court of Two Sisters, located along the Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter. Mimosas, bloody marys, or a refreshing gin and tonic were being made by the vested, bow-tied bartender for guests looking for a little more kick with their brunch.
If there’s one thing Midwesterners like to do (aside from complain about the weather – be it too hot or too cold) it’s eat, and Chicagoans are no exception. While the heartland of the United States is known for more simple, “meat-and-potatoes” cooking, bigger cities like Chicago stand out as dining meccas, shining beacons that represent just how amazing, delicious and creative food can be.
When you think about Italy, a couple of things might come to mind, like wine, pasta, pizza, and the boisterous nature of the Italian people.
What you might NOT know, however, is that the food scene in Italy varies with each region (and even each town). Cheese, for example, is often named after its place of origin.
