For many, Europe represents the height of culinary accomplishment. From the elegant dining rooms presided over by renowned chefs to the bustling street carts that pepper the cobblestone streets, the endlessly varied cuisine draws us back to Europe time and again. Whether you've been once or a dozen times, there are always new ways to expand your palate. Our hungry editors have scoured the continent to recommend the best destinations for travelers with an appetite. 

Each country offers a unique culinary history that most will recognize, including Spanish tapas, French wine and cheese, Italian pastas and meats, and German beer. This list just barely exposes the tip of the iceberg. The best-known foodie destinations - Paris, Tuscany, Rome, and Barcelona - have many fans. But there are also emerging destinations that are becoming culinary hot spots in their own right. Copenhagen, Madrid, and Crete are among the places that have been added to the itineraries of foodies in recent years.

For an immersive experience, there are companies that run curated food and wine tours. While many come with a hefty price tag, they may afford you experiences you could not arrange otherwise such as private tours of a winery or a tasting of exclusive ingredients.
