Travel the world, or stay on the sofa? Shaun Keaveny asks what destinations are worth it.

As well as conjuring up the sights and sounds from their favourite destinations, the guests in the most recent series ofhave also really whetted listeners' appetites when it comes to the exotic smells, tastes and unique culinary experiences they have encountered on their travels.

“Oh my God, the smell! Phenomenal!” exclaims Catherine of her trip to bakery Pastéis de Belém, where people queue around the block to experience its flaky delights. “The fresh custard is just thick enough to be slightly set, and they're sweet and salty,” she continues. “And they're warm. I didn't expect them to be warm. They're just exquisite.”

One of her favourites is a “dive bar” called Toto's Garage where you can drink Kingfisher on tap while looking at half a VW Beetle coming out of a wall! Unexpected “delights” that Ainsley was offered, and were crammed in as he walked around, included locusts and fried tarantula. “It was wonderfully crunchy, a bit peanuty and nutmeggy, with a bit of chilli,” says Ainsley of the spider-y treat.

With goat water heartier than it sounds, leave some room for fungee and pepperpot, the national dish of Antigua. Fungee is like polenta and made from a cornmeal porridge. Meanwhile, pepperpot is a “one pot stew traditionally made in a thing called a yabba pot, a beautiful way to slow cook food.” Its many ingredients include salt beef, fresh pork, salt pork, oxtail, pigeon peas, kale, spinach, aubergine and – if that wasn’t enough – okra.
