Local Foods & Dishes on Google Maps
One of the great joys of travelling is discovering (and tasting) the local and regional foods and dishes of the places you visit.
If you ever get the chance to travel around England then I recommend you consult The Food Map of England and the UK Food Tourism website.
The Food Map of England is a Google Map that shows the local and regional specialities of food throughout England. For example, if you visit Cheshire, The Food Map of England shows you that Cheshire Onion Pie, Cheshire Lamb Crumble, Cheshire Cheese and Cheshire Pork Pie are all local delicacies that you might want to try.
After finding the local dishes on offer with The Food Map of England you can then consult the UK Food Tourism website to discover local restaurants, and local food markets and festivals. The UK Food Tourism website contains a number of regional Google Maps that allow you to discover locally recommended food centres throughout the UK.
