Food by NGT Issue 16

LONDON (1 June): Food by National Geographic Traveller (UK) is setting off for Spain this Summer, with a tour of some of the country’s most memorable culinary highlights.

The latest edition of this special-issue series takes readers on a trip around one of the world’s most extraordinary food destinations — from Granada’s tapas trail to the vineyards of Catalonia and Valencia’s orange groves.

Glen Mutel, editor of Food by National Geographic Traveller, said: “In this issue, we celebrate all that’s great about Spanish cuisine, from the simple to the sublime, and occasionally even the surreal.

“It’s so easy to eat well in Spain. Even if you’ve only been once or twice, chances are you’ve dined in style, whether on paella, tortillas, chorizo
or churros.

“But the great thing about having a country like this on our doorstep is that it offers a potential lifetime’s worth of discoveries, such as the furanchos of Galicia — restaurants so unofficial they can only operate for three months in every year. Or the historic cider houses of the Basque region, where crowds gather to catch a golden arc of amber liquid in their glasses as it gushes from a freshly tapped wooden cask.”
Also in this issue, we explore the cuisine of Brittany, France, which brings the sea and the land together on a plate; head to the Greek island of Chios, for a family meal; and explore the street food stalls of Mexico’s food capital, Oaxaca. There’s all this, plus the culinary highlights of Mumbai, Verbier and Edinburgh.
In addition, expect the usual mix of thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes from world-renowned contributors.
