Memorable Dishes of 2010in France, Spain, Italy, and Ireland
It’s become an annual tradition: we look back at the last year and consider what the best meals of the year were. Last year we focused on Italy, and this year we are doing it across the board.
As we travel throughout the five countries where we offer our gourmet tours (France, Ireland, Spain, Portugal and France) throughout the year, between the whole team we get to try literally hundreds of restaurants throughout the year. These range from hole- in- the wall – family restaurants to gastro pubs to Michelin starred high end eateries.
We have selected some of our favorite dishes (as you can see we tended to favor simple preparations and top quality ingredients over complicated dishes) this past year with links to where we were lucky enough to taste them.
May 2011 be a terrific year for all our readers, may you eat and drink very well!
