During July we're exploring the new things we taste and learn when we travel. We'll bring you fresh inspiration from cuisines around the world, too. But first, we want to know: What was the tastiest thing you ever brought home from vacation? I told you the story here of Oliviera, a little olive oil shop and restaurant in Nice, France, that is bound up for me in memories of being newly married and having a rather magical late honeymoon in the south of France. The taste of the olive oil we bought there, though, is not just warm nostalgia; it is still some of the most delicious olive oil I've ever tasted.
What about you? What are the best edible souvenirs you've ever brought home from travel — international or otherwise? And what do you do when those tasty things run out?
