Picasso allegedly once said that when you travel you must “devour with your eyes.” When I visited this region on the Italian Riviera, I devoured everything—and not only with my eyes! The scenery was certainly divine: brightly painted houses perched atop high cliffs; stony beaches spreading down to the deep-blue Ligurian Sea. But I also enjoyed the best food, hands-down, that I have ever eaten in my life. I love seafood, and I will never forget the small restaurant where a server brought a big earthenware vase to my table, and dumped a pile of fresh-caught, simply prepared octopus right onto my plate.—Andrew Tedesco
