One thing I like the most about vacationing somewhere far away from home is the chance to sample dozens of new and exciting dishes. (Besides, calories don’t count when you’re on vacation, right? ^^) So, while I don’t exactly like crowds, one of my future vacation goals is to attend an actual food festival…

Now, there are actually plenty of famous culinary festivals going on around the world. Some are quite close, such as the Jakarta Fashion & Food Festival, while others like the The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival is far away and probably way beyond my budget. Anyway, there are actually several festivals (amongst the dozens or hundreds being held each year) that I’ve put on my “I really, really want to go there” list.

First up is the Singapore Food Festival. Just like Indonesia, Singapore is a melting pot of cultures, which is highly evident in the island-nation’s cuisine. And I like Peranakan cooking… ^^

And then there’s the Wildfoods Festival held by our neighbors down south (New Zealand, that is). As the name implies, this festival will feature some pretty unusual fare—although ‘unusual’ would be quite an understatement. There will be sheep milk cheese, wasp larvae ice cream (seriously?), huhu grubs, and other surprises…

Finally, my absolute must-attend culinary festival is the Taste of Christmas which held annually in London. Say what you want about the commercialization of Christmas, but great food has always been part of Christmas celebrations all over the globe. And the Taste of Christmas usually presents celebrity chefs such as Jamie Oliver and the Baker Brothers. A festive atmosphere, great food, incredible cooking demos, and intriguing cooking classes… what more can I ask? ^^
