Cultures and countries are defined by food and many are rightly proud of their culinary heritage.

Some dishes are so iconic that they carry the name of their birthplace and, of course, they taste so much better in situ.

So if you're a serious global foodie with a checklist you're itching to tick, Lonely Planet put together a list of where to go and what to eat to start you off.

Salad Nicoise
1 of 8
The Nice section of the Mediterranean coast is known as the place where 'the fish live in the sea and die in oil' and the perfect Niçoise includes those fish and a view of that sea. The internet is filled with foodies arguing over the 'true' ingredients of Salad Niçoise. Most agree that anchovy, artichoke hearts, tomatoes and black olives are 'in', other ingredients are disputed, but all must be heavily doused in a good local olive oil.
