Croissants in Paris, pasta in Italy, or chocolate in Belgium? A bit of everything, please! Being a foodie does not mean to devastate every fast-food that comes in your way, it means to have a real passion for food and drink, to appreciate the culinary technique, and to find pleasure not in satisfying the hunger, but in sampling various local cuisines.
Each country or region has its own distinct style of cooking based on geographic location, local ingredients, tradition, and practices. Food is an important part of the local culture and it has always gone hand in hand with travel. Therefore, I decided to put together a list of 5 food cities to choose from when planning your next culinary adventure in Europe.
Home of ragu, mortadella, and tortellini, the capital city of Emilia Romagna is a haven for foodies. “La Grassa”, how Bologna has been nicknamed due to its brilliant culinary traditions, is a memorable experience for anyone in search of authentic epicurean escapades. One of the best things about Bologna – and Italy as a whole – is that when trying to find a good place to eat it’s almost impossible to fail. Whether you opt for a Michelin-starred restaurant or a tucked-away trattoria, chances are you’ll not even notice the difference.
There’s no doubt France has brought food to another level and made Paris the number one fine dining capital of the world. From the real temples of haute cuisine to the quintessential Parisian bistros, the glamorous French capital has something for everyone. Trying Laduree’s famous pastries might be a must for some, but a simple picnic in one of the city’s many green areas can be an equally charming experience as long as you’re in Paris and there’s a good rosé and a mouth-watering butter baguette on the menu.
