This is really easy for me; I tend to judge upon where I ate the best when I visited their respective countries.
First choice: Italy. No brainer. Several courses in a modest little trattoria, no menu, however patience and endurance is required. Do NOT use
up all your room on the antipasto. Great local fare. Nobody shops for the week, but for the day. People were great. I nearly stayed there
forever. Italian would do me well for the rest of my life, thank y'verymuuuuuch.
Very close second: Mexico. WOW. Fish, and all manner of meats, sumptuous vegetables, great regional differences. Friendly people. I could
survive well for the rest of my life on Mexican cuisine.
Third: Jamaican/Caymanian.......... these two are very close together, and mostly differ by various spices and favored fish. This is the cuisine
in which I mostly cook, although I foray into others every week. This cuisine renders lesser meats into flavorful and tender dishes. The toasty
Scotch Bonnet pepper plays a major role, and fresh thyme, basil, garlic, ginger, pimento seed (allspice), and oregano are recurring themes.
Really interesting to me to see everyone else's choices and why.
