Just because the rest of the world hasn’t caught up to your ethical or health-conscious eating style doesn’t mean YOU need to sacrifice one of the best parts of a trip: food! There are plenty of chefs around the world that travel on your mindful wavelength. Here’s a tasty sample:

Back when the Earth was still moving and shaking and glaciers and volcanoes shaped the world, sheets of ice carved their way between the ocean and mainland Alaska to create Gastineau Channel. It is this stretch of water between Juneau and Douglas Island that is perfect for cruise ships to dock and seaplanes to land and bring families to explore this still wild land.
Thanks to Pike Place Market, Beecher’s Cheese and premium coffee, Seattle was a grown-up food lover’s destination years before the word “foodie” was coined. This fall, Thompson Seattle is breathing new life into its stalwart status as a food town. While it is, understandably, taking advantage of neighboring Pike Place Market as a perfect base camp for some of its food tours, it is now thinking outside the market in a number of ways.
While urban wine country might sound like an oxymoron, it’s actually a reality at the stunning City Vineyard in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The water-side venue is the perfect host for your next event — whatever that may be, from 20 to 200 guests and from cocktail party to plated dinner.
When travelers unfamiliar with a place rely on its past reputation as a spring break haunt for college kids or a family-friendly place with limited dining opportunities, there is nowhere to go but up — even if some genuinely excellent restaurants have served its residents for ages. That’s certainly true on South Padre Island, whose chefs and restaurateurs take full advantage of its sub-tropical location in the Gulf of Mexico, fresh produce from the Texas mainland and a mix of familiar (Mexican, Texas barbeque) and unexpected culinary influences from near and far.
