One of the upsides of visiting Prague when it's -12°C and snowing is that Czech food is perfect for winter. It's comforting and hearty, potato dumplings and rich beef goulash, Sunday roasts and sweet yeast buns. You can get pretty much any food you want in Prague, there are lots… Read more of "What to eat in Prague"
We spent the first two months of the year in Prague. It was long enough to get into a proper routine and three times a week we'd head out early and spend the morning working in one of the coffee shops near our apartment. Our area, Vinhorady, turned out to be full of coffee shops… Read more of "Five great coffee shops in Vinhorady, Prague"
I'm not going to tell you how long we spent in Vienna because this list of cakes is much bigger than it ought to be for such a short stay. Vienna has a long and delicious history of making sweets. There are bakeries and coffee houses all over the city, and they're especially… Read more of "Five Viennese cakes"
I had no idea what Bosnian food was like before we decided to visit this autumn. It had never even crossed my mind. But after our first meal (cevapi in a cafe in Sarajevo), I couldn't stop raving about it – why aren't there more Bosnian restaurants everywhere? There's an obvious… Read more of "What to eat in Bosnia and Herzegovina"

I think Mexican food might be my favourite. And I'm writing this in Italy so you know I'm serious. We spent 6 months in Mexico. From our first meal (where our waiter laughed at us as he bought out bowl after bowl of tortilla chips because we ate so much guacamole) to our last… Read more of "What to eat in Mexico"
When we lived in London, every Saturday we'd stroll around the farmers' market at the end of our road. Coffees in hand, chatting and browsing (but never actually buying, London is expensive peeps). So it was lovely to pick up this little tradition again here in Mexico at the… Read more of "Sayulita farmers' market"
Breakfast is big in Mexico. We're talking eggs, baskets of handmade corn tortillas, shredded chicken or beef, refried beans, lots of salsa. Before we arrived, my knowledge of Mexican breakfasts started and ended with huevos rancheros, but there are so many more and they usually… Read more of "A guide to Mexican eggs"
One of the things I've enjoyed about spending longer in one country – we've been in Mexico for 4 months now, our longest stint yet! – is getting a better understanding of the culture. We're starting to pick up on things that we might not have noticed on a shorter trip. My… Read more of "¡Buen provecho!"
One of the things we loved about Oaxaca was the coffee shops ( here are some of the others! ). Oaxaca produces some of the best coffee in Mexico and there are lots of great places to enjoy it around the city, from cosy hole-in-the-walls to bright, colourful outdoor spaces. Here… Read more of "Five great coffee shops in Oaxaca, Mexico"
Speak to pretty much anyone about Cuba and you'll hear the same thing – the food is terrible. Food is one of our favourite ways to experience other cultures, and we love discovering local dishes, learning about the different ways people use ingredients and trying new flavours… Read more of "What to eat in Cuba"
From local tapas joints to contemporary dining and fish restaurants by the sea, Valencia has a lot to offer foodies.

If you're heading to Valencia for the first time, here are… Read more of "What to eat in Valencia"
