Main Stage

Where are the best places on Earth to eat and drink? What about Mendoza, the Argentinian wine region famous for its steak and malbec reds? Or San Sebastián, the Spanish city that’s taken the restaurant world by storm? How about Lyon, the centre of French gastronomic excellence? Many of us travel in the hope of a good meal — but if you want to truly put food and drink at the heart of your plans, where do you start? Join Nicola Trup, deputy editor of National Geographic Traveller Food, and her panel of experts as they pick out the places that could almost have been designed with food-lovers in mind, from Bologna and Beirut to Cusco and California. 

Featuring chef and broadcaster Jonathan Phang, food blogger Katie Pix and food and travel writers Liz Dodd and Pól Ó Conghaile.
