  • A year ago we landed in Lima in Peru our last stop! I think out of all our stops this had to be my favourite...we had no idea what to expect and it was surprising, exhilarating and confusing all at once.. @virgiliocentral and @mitsuharu_maido and the fresh fish @gastonacurio we’re all seriously outstanding. Experiences we will never forget. Personally @centralrest was my favourite...it had us confused, delighted and talking about it for days which in my book is what great restaurants are all about...but what made this trip special beyond words were the people we met, their spirit, generosity, knowledge and vision. And best of all I shared this whole thing with two of the most amazing human beings on the planet...thank you @gcalombaris and @mattscravat ......beyond amazing 🤗🤗 let’s film the next trip and then everyone else can come along for the ride...!!!! Thank you @limagourmet for our Lima introduction couldn’t have been better. #threemusketeers #boystrip #worldtour #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #onceinalifetime #lima #peru

  • Stop 6 last year: Chicago! We picked a couple of gorgeous days to be in the ‘Windy City’ Big modern American sky line, Trump tower, DuSable Bridge, Millennium Park, Cloud Gate very impressive...one problem though Matt missed the flight.....as we pulled out of the gate at Heathrow we imagined him, nose pressed against the glass whimpering ‘waaait...😢’ George and I made the most of it.... @publicanchicago for dinner, @roisterchicago for lunch....the waffles fried chicken and whisky butter was bloody delicious...🤩 Matt arrives in time for @alinearestaurant and @aviarycocktails which was brilliant and worth the wait...! Having eaten at the best of the best we went into full tourist mode and ate a really bad Chicago deep pan pizza....after Naples a culinary faux pas of epic proportions and @mattscravat and I went on an architectural river tour of the city.....brilliant for geeks like us not Greeks like @gcalombaris who stayed in his hotel room and watched the soccer in his undies and stripy socks....there’s a photo somewhere...🤪😂😂 #Chicago #lovetotravel #boystrip #foodtour #threemusketeers #onceinalifetime #foodiesofinstagram #alineachicago #theaviarychicago

  • Throwback to last year and a few days in Copenhagen were an absolute treat if not the most expensive stop on our trip....we ate so well and way too much @restaurant_geranium @nomacph @hartbageri to name a few. By now we all realised that these amazing restaurants on the cutting edge of the culinary world all had a wonderful and unmistakeable sense of place....none more so than Noma. This was the first time for me, it was the start of the game season and I fell in love with everything about it. One of the very best meals of my life. My favourite moment however was during a tour of the kitchens.....a young Indian girl who was busy working on a table with many other chefs whispered ‘that she had become a chef and found herself at Noma because of the three of us...❤️ I wanted to apologise knowing how hard she was working and what dedication it takes to be truly good at what you do but she was gushing. I had a little dad moment....so proud and pleased...walking away along the corridor I discreetly wiped a tear away from the corner of my eye...🤗 Nobody noticed thank goodness although later I told the boys and was sure they welled up too....just a little.....😌 @gcalombaris @mattscravat @reneredzepinoma #boystour #foodtour #threemusketeers #copenhagen #restaurantgeranium #noma #hartbageri #senseofplace #bestrestaurants #50bestrestaurants #lovetotravel #throwback

  • Throwback Friday - stop 4 Paris last  year..! I love Paris sooo much.....George left us to be a couple for two days...awkward? Not really we were a ‘couple’ of little piggies in the proverbial. We had a rocky start at Apèrge didn’t gel with the sommelier after he couldn’t offer us a beer...he tried so hard with the champagne...non! Vermouth?....non...cider? aaah qui...😝 I think he thought we were trying to be difficult....but things turned sharply up with the arrival of the first dish then everything just blew our socks off....the food was truly beautiful and quite frankly faultless...Alain Passard was our own food massiah (no offence intended) he came to the table opened his arms and with a big smile proclaimed ‘How good...is food and wine...!’ It became our catch cry for the rest of the year maybe for the rest of our lives.....oh Paris I miss you so...❤️ @mattscravat @gcalombaris #paris #loveparis #france #frenchfood #lovedood #lovetottavel #foodtour #threemusketeers #threeamigos #foodiesofinstagram #foodies #aroundtheworld #boystrip
