Bajan food is responsible for some of the freshest, zingiest flavours out there. Take a look at our video guide to Barbados for starters, then get stuck into our guide to its must-try dishes and a tour of the best rum distilleries on the island.


If you're after cocktails and street food with a backdrop of music, dancing and sunshine, Rio de Janiero should be at the top of your must-visit list. Get to know more about the city's food scene, before discovering what other culinary treats the rest of the country has to offer.


Canada has shaken off its stereotypical image in recent years and emerged as one of the most exciting places to eat in the world.

Fajitas, enchiladas and burritos just don't cut it anymore in the UK. We're now eager to taste seafood cocktails from Baja, the incredible tacos of Mexico City and the rich moles of Oaxaca and Pueblo. The regional cuisine of Mexico is finally getting the attention it deserves, and with more and more of us visiting the country every year, now's the time to get to know about one of the most important (and delicious) cuisines in existence.


Peru boasts a bounty of ingredients like no other country. Hundreds of weird and wonderful potatoes, herbs rarely seen outside its borders and a rainbow of colours make it one of the most interesting places to eat.

If there's one thing US chefs and cooks know how to do well, it's flavour. While the country may have a reputation for fast food, unhealthy diets and excessiveness, look beyond the stereotypes and you'll find a wealth of cuisines, cooking techniques and world-class restaurants. From the Mediterranean-inspired cooking of California to the best barbecue in the world, a trip to the US guarantees good eating like nowhere else.
