At the end of every year, I spend a little time looking back at all of my eating and drinking experiences over the past 12 months, creating a list of the best of the best. This time around I narrowed it down to 12 – some are entire meals, some just small components of a meal. Big or small, fancy or simple, each of these are things I’d love to be able to experience again and again!
While this is just a basic list, you can read more about each one by clicking on the links provided.
Without further ado, here is my Top 12 of 2012!
