    I was traveling in Italy, and of course everywhere there, the food is so amazing—but while in Milan, I had one of the most unexpectedly delightful dishes I ever had—strawberry risotto! It was scrumptious—savory, with Parm and wine, but ever so slightly sweet with the flavor of strawberries in the most delicate pink hue. By today’s standards, with all kinds of flavor mashups, it may not seem odd, but “back in the day” it was quite usual!

    Most of my travel has been domestic, but I do love to watch episodes of his shows that focus on American cities before traveling to them myself. Always great insights. Some of my favorite meals on trips include finding those places that nobody would suspect offer amazing dining.

    A few of my favorites have included The Old Coffee Pot Restaurant for amazing breakfast in New Orleans, just a quick turn off of Bourbon Street, Also in New Orleans is Lefite’s Blacksmith Shop, a Bar dating to the 1770’s.

    On a recent trip to Baltimore, I uncovered Amicci’s in their Little Italy section. An awesome casual Italian experience. If I could either their House Gnocchi with fresh spinach, italian ham, and roasted red peppers in our creamy alfredo sauce everyday I’d be a happy (and fat) camper

    One of my favorite travel finds were the amazing food stalls at the annual Ram Lila in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, India. One of the ice cream stalls had frozen mangoes stuffed with saffron kulfi that was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten in my life. About six months later when my mother came to visit me there I asked my friends where we could find this delicacy so I could share it with her and they said they only have it that one time a year (during fall Navaratri for anyone who is intrigued by this). I’m definitely hoping to go back one day!

    Hands down….one of the very best meals I have ever had was on a spectacular trip to Kauai, Hawaii. We were lucky enough to have the seafood buffet at the Princeville Hotel which overlooks HanaLei Bay. No part of this could have been better….the food was some of the best and freshest seafood dishes I have ever had and the view….unbelievable!! Will never forget!!

    I had a traditional Peking duck while traveling in China. We had a private room, complete with a large round table with a lazy Susan in the middle and a staticy black and white tv in the corner. The food was presented with such honor and distinction. Our hosts had so much pride in the cuisine, most notably the duck. And it was darn good!

    One of my favorite meals ever was Husk in Charleston with my husband. The flavors are so elevated but authentic, Sean Brock is a food genius. The recent Charleston episode of Parts Unknown with him is my favorite!

    Today, most everyone knows what bubble tea is…even if they haven’t tried it. As near as I can tell, I was drinking bubble tea from Ten Ren in Flushing as early as 2005 (and not being Asian meant I was quite out of place). But drinking bubble tea in Queens is not quite the same as going to the source.

    So, my wife and I booked a trip to Taichung, Taiwan, the “birthplace” of bubble tea. Specifically, Chun Shui Tang’s first shop ( It was magic. The glass was huge (like German beer stein huge) and the tapioca perfectly cooked. To this day, if I want a traditional “milk tea with bubbles”, nothing beats the place that started it all. That is one expensive glass of tea, though.

    My most memorable international meal was in South Korea in 2004. It was called bulgogi. We sat on the floor at an adorable wooden table. Little bowls of condiments and sides covered the entire table. Thin slices of raw beef marinated in a bowl of deliciousness was brought to us. The center of the table opened to reveal a cast iron-type grill top. We grilled our meat in an interactive dining experience, and we could garnish it however we wanted from all the choices laid out before us. That trip played a big part in my decision to become a chef, and that particular meal will always be one of my all time favorites.

    My most memorable meal was in Iceland on a business trip many years ago, the Seafood cellar in Reykjavík (Sjávarkjallarinn) Its sadly closed since but was by far one of the most amazing and adventurous meals I’ve ever had. Butter poached langoustine in glass jars, Icelandic cheese, hare carpaccio, all odd and amazing!
