Escapes: Most Inspiring Vacation Meal?

Pin it button big

August's theme is Escapes and we're thinking about getting outside, getting away from normal routines to find fresh inspiration.

Even though we focus here on home cooking in our own kitchens, one place of course we find inspiration is in food from restaurants and great chefs. We've talked about trips to Paris and the recipes they've yielded, like this one for Salade Lyonnais and another for the chocolate Gateau Zoë.

So we're asking you - what is the most inspiring vacation meal you've ever had? What restaurant or local dish made you scurry back to your own kitchen to try and reproduce it?
