Like many other shops and stalls before it, Bread Ahead has added a new chapter to Borough Market's culinary history book. Here, on the southern end of London Bridge, food "traders"—the butcher, the baker, and the aged English cheddar maker—have been hawking and selling for more than 1,000 years, keeping a tantalizing legacy alive. #London   #market   #food   #culinarytravel   #cheese   #gelato   #sustainablefood

Rich in maritime heritage and bountiful soils, the towns and fishing villages of Penobscot Bay make up an idyllic destination that is both seafaring and earthbound. From shanty to gourmet, restaurant menus highlight farm-fresh produce as much as lobster, while local wineries and inns offer culinary surprises unique to Maine. Tall ships and lighthouses are ready and waiting for when the sea inevitably beckons.

Bees have earned their wings at airports as well as hotels, department stores, opera houses, and other surprising places. And because it's cool to drone on about the industrious creatures (especially on National Honey Bee Day), here are 10 of our favorite places to find them.

Want a sweet souvenir from your travels? Urban apiaries are the latest buzz in major cities around the globe, and you can discover them tucked away in popular tourist spots. In an effort to combat colony collapse disorder (a phenomenon in which bee populations decline dramatically), ...

From coffee plantations along the famed Kona coast to specialty farms on the world's tallest volcano, small-scale producers afford visitors behind-the-scenes glimpses into Hawaii Island's best food: estate-produced roasts, silken white honey, chocolate made from local cacao, succulent tropical fruits, and even Hawaii-grown vanilla. http://bit.ly/1jmGAwr

For real Big Island flavor, go beyond the resorts and luaus and head into the fertile rainforests and fields of Hawaii Island. From coffee plantations along the famed Kona coast to specialty farms on the world's tallest volcano, small-scale producers afford visitors behind-the-scenes glimpses ...

Breezy and unpretentious—and largely undiscovered by U.S. travelers—this group of French islands in the Eastern Caribbean Sea is perhaps best known for its French-Creole gastronomy, but it's equally enchanting for its carefree beaches, painted villages, colorful festivals, and majestic, misty volcano.

As an overseas department of France, Guadeloupe is, unsurprisingly, a gastronomic paradise. But when you add in a fusion of Creole, African, and Indian culinary influences, the West Indian archipelago becomes unmistakably Caribbean.

And whether you indulge in exotic fruits and spices, cod fritters with an addictive "dog" sauce, or potent rum cocktails, you'll surely be treated to a memorable tropical feast.

With memories of Iceland's disruptive Eyjafjallajökull (pronounced eye-a-fyat-la-jo-kult) volcano still burning in our collective memory, one might approach the country's recent volcanic rumblings with trepidation. But unlike in 2010 when Eyjafjallajökull's billowing ash cloud stopped air traffic, the latest eruption—this time from Bárðarbunga—is encouraging it.

While simple pleasures like just-picked fruit on a country drive hold the essence of summer anywhere, few places provide as ideal a setting as Maine's Penobscot Bay region, where the produce is fresh, the sea breezes calming, and the locals cheerful.

While rolling down Route 52, between Megunticook Lake's placid waters and the leafy maples of Camden Hills State Park, a sandwich board with the words "fresh blueberries" slowly came into focus. I made the snap decision to pull a Smart-car-sized U-ey into a dirt-covered driveway, my tiny wheels ...
