“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.” Audrey Hepburn

For Food Tour Guides, Requests to 'Eat Like a Local' Are Complicated
Food tour guides want to showcase the best of their cities—but often come up against unintentional biases, fear of new foods, and lack of context on their tours. 
In recent years, food tourism has been defined by a single phrase: “Eat like a local.”
The gold standard of a good vacation is no longer to hit all the famous monuments, or even to blow a lot of money on a restaurant with multiple Michelin stars. It’s about finding the chaat wallah in a specific alleyway who serves Mumbai’s best bhel puri; the superlative noodle stall in Singapore in a sea of food vendors; the doubles in Tobago sold out of an unmarked van in a parking lot. People don’t want to just vacation to a city; they want to feel like they live in that city—and a great way to do that is through food. By Priya Krishna – September 9, 2020

Fall, no matter your age, still somehow signals the chance to start anew. The season almost urges you to slow down, savour quiet moments, dig into harvest foods and discover new experiences. Here are a few of our favourite ways to safely embrace autumn this year. Source – Destination Canada
