Dinner Destination Inspiration

Look up your destination’s local fare. Is this place known for their street tacos or is it the home of the Cronut? Or perhaps it is a global location, like Italy or China that is famous for their cuisine? Plan a meal around your trip’s famous foods.

Let the clues begin to drop at the supermarket with a destination-themed ingredient list. When you get home, set the table with decorative napkins and plates that hint toward your trip. While eating, ask your kids if they can guess what town, state or country the meal was inspired from. Then reveal your trip once they guess the right location. Bon appetit and bon voyage!
