THE FAT DUCK - Situated in Bray, Berkshire. Voted The Best Restaurant In The World. It truly is. I have eaten there and Heston Blumenthal's mix of food and science just blows your mind and your taste buds
THE HINDS HEAD - Situated in Bray, Berkshire. Another Heston Blumenthal restaurant, just down the road from The Fat Duck. This is true British fare in true British surroundings - superb
ROGANO - Literally step back in time when you enter this original Art Deco restaurant in Glasgow. They had the forsight never to change anything and all the walls and fitted furniture are truly original. They taught me to love oysters here. Fabulous seafood that really tastes of the sea
HARVEY NICHOLS @ THE OXO TOWER - Fabulous food and fabulous views over the Thames
THE OYSTER BAR @ BIBENDUM - This fabulously tiled oyster bar is in the foyer of The Conran Shop on Fulham Road, London. The old Michelin Building is, to me, a palace
LES TROIS GARCONS - In London's East End is a visual delight. Packed with quirky vintage pieces and so much eye candy you could go blind. The food's good too
POONS CHINESE RESTAURANT - Situated on Lisle Street in London's China Town this is scruffy and one particular member of staff sniffs the whole time she is serving but the food is to die for. Do not be put off by the exterior or the sniffing

LA GAULOISE 59 Avenue La Motte Picquet, 75015 Paris. If you are in Paris don't miss this truly traditional French restaurant where all the politicians and famous eat but don't worry it's not expensive, just delicious
CHEZ MARIANNE - A Marais institution. Situated in the Jewish Quarter I have no idea what it is they serve but it tastes divine. Worth it just to see and hear Marianne a middle aged Bardot type French woman with a laugh like a drain
CAFES OF THE HAM FAIR - If you are visiting the Ham Fair in Paris on the little island of Chatou then go and eat some ham dishes at the cafes in the centre aisle of the stalls - delicious fare
BRASSERIE LIPP - On the Boulevard Saint Germain this Paris institution is worth a visit just to see the jewelry on the customers. If you look poor you get put in Siberia - the cold part of the restaurant - dress up
AIX EN PROVENCE CAFES - Any pavement cafe in Aix is the place to stop and have a bite to eat just to people watch
AVIGONON CAFES OPPOSITE THE PALAIS DE PAPES - Just one of those fabulous places to sit and eat
ABSOLUTELY ANY VILLAGE IN THE LUBERON -So beautiful the food becomes irrelevant

LA CASTELLANA - If you are staying in Greve in Chianti, which I would strongly advise, you can take a walk up the hill and by the time you get to the top you will be ready to eat. This is a superb restaurant in the most idyllic location - go
CAFE FLORIAN - Venice is not the best place for eating out but sitting in our outside Cafe Florian is something everyone should be able to do at least once in their life. Best time is when the orchestras outside each cafe in St Mark's Square compete against each other
VILLA BORDINI - Situated in the Greve area of Chianti this is a cookery school, hotel and restaurant. Stunning place and stunning food
OVERLOOKING THE SEA ON THE ISLE OF CAPRI - Restaurants and cafes too numerous to mention all with fabulous views over the Bay of Naples
TRASTEVERE IN ROME - Just stop anywhere in this ancient part of Rome and enjoy real Roman peasant food - delicious. I had Christmas Dinner at one of them - 5 courses of delicious food and 1 Litre of Wine for 15 Euros
INSIDE THE MERCATO CENTRALE IN FLORENCE - Go in the front doors, turn left and sit at the little cafe in the corner. It has been there for years and the old couple running it will give you the best cup of coffee in Florence with delicious snacks

BRASSERIE LES HALLES - Anthony Bourdain comes second on my favourite chef's list - Jamie Oliver is first. I was in no way disappointed when I visited his restaurant in New York
THE RUSSIAN TEA ROOM - Well how can you not visit this New York institution? The decor is blinding and Carol Gillot (Paris Breakfasts) paints their menus
THE FRENCH MARKET IN NEW ORLEANS - Just strolling around eating items purchased from the stalls is heaven on earth then stop off at The Original French Market Coffee Stand
TAVERN ON THE GREEN - On Central Park, New York this fabulous restaurant could serve me dirt and I would still be in awe - fabulous rooms and gardens


BODEGAS IN THE MOUNTAINS - If perchance you are going into the mountains of Spain then stop by a Bodega and not only will you get fablous wine but they will feed you with the best ham, tomatoes, bread and olive oil that you have ever tasted
TAPAS IN BARCELONA - Only because they are the best Tapas I have had in Spain

CAFE MOZART VIENNA - Don't listen to those pain in the butt people who tell you it's full of tourists because it's not due to the fact that most tourists believe them and don't go. GO it's fabulous and the cakes are divine
