Progressive Dinner Around the World?

We are feeling a bit nostalgic.  One of our recent conversations included naming the best meals we have ever had.   So, I posed the question to Gabe….if you had superpower and could have a ‘progressive dinner’ around the world (travel to different places for different courses), where would you go?
