How we formed our results...
In order to find plausible results on our Country Ranking tool with regards to cuisine, we took 3 methods to find the overall standings. Method 1 - Best cuisine articles and blog posts. Search for 10 existing polls on cuisine and find an average of mentions of that country and place on the list. Method 2 - Collect a list of 10 top tour operators around the world. Search each country and find how many food tours they offer. Method 3 - Twitter search. Find the amount of times a country and their food was mentioned, e.g. #Peru #food.
