Are you tired of trying to channel your own inner Martha Stewart planning and preparing the perfect holiday meal? More holidays are just around the corner but if you're ready to hang up your apron don't worry there's an easy solution. Just pack your bags and head to one of the top culinary destinations in the world and let someone else whip up a gourmet meal for you this holiday season.

For ABC's new half-hour travel show that I host called Travel Now, we just highlighted some of the top foodie finds from across the globe. One of my favorite dining destinations for mouth-watering meals and fine wine is Bordeaux, France, but to truly appreciate this region you need some insider tips on the best hotels, restaurants and wine chateaus.

I've included the part of our travel show that highlights Bordeaux to give you a true taste of the region. For more unique Travel Therapy vacation ideas check out and for more of our travel videos at ABC just go to and you'll find the videos at the top of the page and under Travel Now.

Bon Appetit!
