As I began to learn more about food and cooking, I found inspiration from trying out new restaurants. As my confidence in the kitchen grew, I started to recreate many of my favorite dishes.

Unlike watching TV or reading a recipe online. Going out to eat gave me a chance to experience what the food should taste like, smell like, and look like.

Over time, I started doing the same while I was traveling. The more I traveled, the more adventurous I became, which led to eating amazing food. Discovering cool new restaurants. And being able to meet some of the amazing chefs behind them.

As my fellow traveling foodies understand. We often plan our trips around our culinary adventures. So it’s helpful to know if there will be any award-winning restaurants nearby.

Ever wonder who has the most Michelin stars? So did we! And to help satisfy our culinary curiosity we put together this list of the top countries.
