One of the great joys of travelling is discovering food from different places. While the flavours and presentation can be different, there is something unifying about food and sharing a meal with people. Since ancient times, food has been synonymous with hospitality and welcoming visitors somewhere new. Now, experiencing the different foods and traditions can give unique insight into a country's history and the different cultures and peoples in a place.
On this page, you'll find some stories about food around the world, perhaps giving you an introduction to new dishes or letting you fondly reminisce about some old favourites. Our writers also share a few of their favourite recipes - from their travels and from their own countries and cultures.
