One of my favourite foods - bobotie from the Cape Malay kitchen in South Africa.  I had it in Cape Town - one of the great cities in the world with lots of great restaurants, a stunning setting and lots of activities.

Saigon in the Luberon (in Provence) is a delightful village still relatively undiscovered.  We had dinner at Auberge du Presbytère - wonderful foie gras - reservations strongly recommended! tomg@adventurecenter.com

I found the food in Vietnam to be some of the freshest I have tasted.  Wonderful sea food and salads and, in the north, fresh spring rolls.  Probably the very freshest was a particular lobster at a homestay in the Mekong Delta.  Our host served it as part of an extensive spread and indicated we should try it.  OK, we said.  He was about to dump it in a pot of boiling water when the creature let out a cry (or was that my imagination?) and started kicking its legs.  We politely declined...

Vietnamese food is ranked popularly as one of the healthiest and the most delicious foods in over the world because of fresh ingredients and herb vegetetables.

The amazing city of Prague did not strike me as foodie paradise when I was there.  The Globe & Mail Sue Riedl disagrees http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/travel/destinations/prague-the-delicious-you-just-cant-get-enough/article4526309/

Would love to be back in Provence again, shop for some cheese, baguette and wine in the market, then hike to a nice picnic spot and have a lazy lunch. tomg@adventurecenter.com
