See the world's most glamorous butcher shop in Pazano on F&W contributor Nancy Harmon Jenkins's Essence of Tuscany tour, departing on October 7. Can't make it? Don't despair. Her Tuscan Olive Harvest trip leaves next month.
A seafood pavilion, a "wine tunnel," a barbecue competition and spice seminars are a few highlights of Tasting Australia, a biennial food bash in Adelaide, October 3-10. How big is it? Big enough to attract star chefs from Sydney, on the other side of the continent, including Serge Dansereau of Bathers' Pavilion, David Thompson of Darley Street Thai and Neil Perry of Rockpool (from $195 a day; 800-546-2155).
Dave Eckert, former host of What's Cookin' Chicago, leaves the Windy City for, well, everywhere on Culinary Travels, a 26-part series that starts on PBS this month.
