Dear fellow food-lover,

Sometimes you have to venture off the beaten path for the most authentic travel experiences. Why not skip the fancy restaurants and indulge in street food? When you take in the local sights, sounds, and tastes of a new country, you'll immerse yourself in its culture.

In this week's blog, we take a tour of the Mediterranean through the street food of Italy, Turkey, Morocco, and beyond— arancini , lacmacun , or falafel , anyone? Then bring the taste of the streets to your own kitchen with our featured recipes!
