World's Best Desserts: Win DK's 'Ultimate Food Journeys' Book (SLIDESHOW)

The length of the flight to Africa might be forgettable, as is the name of that new friend met at a Parisian cafe, but the memory of an amazing food experience never fades. A steamy hot waffle from a kiosk in Brussels, a sweet cone of gelato in Italy, fresh dim sum in Hong Kong — food can make a great travel experience better, and some bites simply can't be missed.

Such is the idea behind DK Eyewitness Travel's book "Ultimate Food Journeys," a 330-page stunner filled with dining inspiration and tips to guide readers along the most epic of food journeys. Think barbecue joints in Memphis, pho stalls in Hanoi, and patisseries in France. Besides offering meal locations, the book offers travel and hotel recommendations, as well as short foodie-fueled itineraries. The photography is not too shabby either, with half-page wide shots of savory pot pies and desserts dripping with cream and sugar.
