Foodtourist Guides

We often get asked by people who are about to travel to various cities and regions for a guide to the best places to eat and to shop for food and wine. Therefore we have developed these guides to provide a short summary of our current thinking about various cities around the globe as well as some selected regional centres where we know the food and wine well.
