Carpaccio of smoked moose, Alexander Restaurant in Estonia.

Anton Sucksdorff

What's hot in travel this week

The Dish

There's no doubt Scandinavia and the surrounding Baltic countries are where fashion forward foodies are heading this year. Recently, Copenhagen's Noma restaurant was named best in the world in San Pellegrino's influential 50 Best Restaurant's list. At Alexander Restaurant on Muhu Island, Estonia, smoked moose carpaccio with asparagus and roasted onions is the must-try dish.

The Drink

Scientists at the Central Institute of Subtropical Horticultural Research in Lucknow, India are developing techniques to turn one of India's most important cash crops - the mango - into a low alcohol beverage that they hope will compete in quality with the great wines of the world. If they have their way we'll soon be discussing the relative merits of Safedas, Chausa and Alphonso the way we do Chardonnay, Merlot and Malbec.

The Chef

Michelin-starred Yannick Alleno, head chef of Le Meurice in Paris, is about to expand to Dubai (the new Vegas for top chefs) with the opening of three restaurants, Zest, Stay and IOI in the One and Only Palm resort. The hottest reservation is sure to be the Sharing Table at Stay where you and 11 of your closest friends will receive a private tasting menu and a special wine list exclusively featuring magnum-size (1,500 ml) bottles.
