Editor's note: Our pals at CNN Travel take a great global view on food culture. They'd like for you to weigh in with your favorites.
We love to write about food. We love to celebrate the good stuff and lambaste the bad.
But there's a debate we've avoided, if only to save computer screens the world over from the liters of spittle that will fly from the mouths of irate readers as they vent incredulously about our "ignorant, biased, un-researched and unreasoned" choices.
Which is why, having taken the plunge, we want to turn this particular piece over to you, and ask: which country has the best food?
[Editor's note: We ran this post a while back, but because so many people are traveling for Thanksgiving, we wanted to share the great advice in the comments below and ask you to shout out more of your hometown favorites.]
Our managing editor gifted Mr. Velshi with the signature dish of her homeland - a can of Skyline Chili Spaghetti, in the hopes that it would sway him to accept her offer of a position as Eatocracy's official Spokesanchor/Taste Tester (he has since been named our Senior Junk Food Correspondent). He, in return, waxed rhapsodic about poutine - a meld of fries, cheese curd, gravy, and, according to him, a soupcon of rancidity from infrequently changed fryer oil.
Bees, bees, everywhere! 50,000 of them - on purpose.
