One of the greatest things to do when you visit a different place is to try the local dishes. By eating ethnical food you'll go a little further in the experience of that city or country, which is the whole idea of traveling.

Gabriele Galimberti is an experienced Italian photographer who travels all over the world to capture the soul of different cultures in the little things. You might know his project called Toy Stories, and following the same idea, he captured the essence of each country's traditional foods, cooked mainly by old ladies, which is totally cute. The project called Delicatessen with Love is a explosion of colors and tastes [in my head] that will bring you new light about other countries' cultures. These are only a handful of dishes: for more, and even to get the actual recipes, visit the project page at Gabriele's personal portfolio. It's a delight. Cheers. ;)
