Fine Dining at Quantus in Chiswick, West London

Another great restaurant to add to my growing list of London's best is Quantus. Offering an exquisite menu of modern European cuisine with a strong Latin influence and a wine list that's inspired and rather Latin tinged as well, this local west London fine dining establishment is a great option for foodies foraging around West London in search of excellence. Service at this lovely little Chiswick local is formal and prompt yet exceptionally friendly, and the prices are a huge relief.

A Toasted Ravioli Tour of St. Louis

I was just like other travelers before me as I stood under the Arch in St. Louis. I am in the Gateway to the West not for any particular reason, other than toasted ravioli tasting. The stomach filling and diet-breaking dish was reportedly born out of the Italian neighborhood southwest of the city. Ravioli can just be ravioli, but in St. Louis it is fried up like a fluffed up pillow and served as an appetizer, even if that palette starter is heartier than the main course. In order to understand this quintessential St. Louis food, you must do as I did, go taste it at some of the supposed best restaurants for toasted ravioli. Here are three tastings of toasted ravioli in St. Louis that are sure to leave stomachs bursting and taste buds satisfied.

Don’t Eat That! How to Avoid Food Poisoning While Traveling

I took a bite of a plate of various meats at a medieval festival in Portugal. At the time, it seemed like the right thing to do. I went into traveling around Portugal with the idea that I would be more adventurous with the foods I try. I was a cautious eater as I traveled, never wanting food poisoning to take away some of my travel days. I left Portugal with a parasite, most likely from that bite at the medieval festival. While it was nothing that some medicine couldn’t handle, it was still unpleasant to say the least. If you would rather not get a parasite or another food born illness as you travel, practice these food safety tips.

Although many Americans tend to claim them as our own, sandwiches are an international culinary phenomenon. It’s amazing how much diversity can exist between two pieces of bread. Here are five sandwiches all globetrotters should try at least once (and I’m willing to bet you’ll go back for more).

As most of the country gets ready to have a Thanksgiving feast, in case you have a few at your table who don’t speak English or French for that matter, it is useful to know how to wish someone a good meal in some of France’s neighbors.
