Europe’s most visited modern art gallery, The Tate has a worldwide reputation as striking as its building, a converted power station in London’s Bankside. With a permanent collection shown across the Boiler House and the recently opened Switch House , designed by Herzog & de Meuron , a visit to the Tate offers an entire history of modern art from the 20th century and beyond. On top of its permanent collection where you’ll encounter everything from painting to performance, it offers well-curated retrospectives of contemporary art greats, including  Damien Hirst , Roy Lichtenstein and Edvard Munch .

Europe’s largest modern art collection, housed inside a fascinating postmodernist building designed by Richard Rogers  and Renzo Piano , the Pompidou offers a collection as impressive as the world’s most famous gallery which it shares a city with – the Louvre. As well as its outdoor escalator offering a novel way to get a great view of the city, the gallery offers extensive collections of Picasso, Miró , Chagall, Matisse and Kandinsky , which are rotated every six months, as well as a vast array of brilliant exhibitions on its first and sixth floors that have in recent years included Freud , Dali and Richter .

As well as rejuvenating the city of Bilbao so well that regeneration projects are now said to have ‘ the Bilbao effect’ , the Guggenheim Bilbao  offers site-specific installations as impressive as its Frank Gehry-designed building. These have included projects by Jeff Koons and Richard Serra , and complement a frequently changing roster of exhibitions, which feature the work of internationally famous artists alongside those who work or have worked in the Basque region where the Guggenheim is housed. No wonder this was labeled one of the ’12 Wonders of Spain’ in 2007.

The cuisine of early modern Europe (c. 1500–1800) was a mix of dishes inherited from medieval cuisine combined with innovations that would persist in the modern era . Though there was a great influx of new ideas, an increase in foreign trade and a scientific revolution , preservation of foods remained traditional: preserved by drying, salting and smoking or pickling in vinegar . Fare was naturally dependent on the season: a cookbook by Domenico Romoli called "Panunto" made a virtue of necessity by including a recipe for each day of the year. [1]

The discovery of the New World , the establishment of new trade routes with Asia and increased foreign influences from sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East meant that Europeans became familiarized with a multitude of new foodstuffs. Spices that previously had been prohibitively expensive luxuries, such as pepper , cinnamon , cloves , nutmeg , and ginger , [2] soon became available to the majority population, and the introduction of new plants coming from the New World and India like maize , potato , sweet potato , chili pepper , cocoa , vanilla , tomato , coffee and tea transformed European cuisine forever.

There was a very great increase in prosperity in Europe during this period, which gradually reached all classes and all areas, and considerably changed the patterns of eating. Everywhere both doctors and chefs continued to characterize foodstuffs by their effects on the four humours : they were considered to be heating or cooling to the constitution, moistening or drying. Nationalism was first conceived in the early modern period , but it was not until the 19th century that the notion of a national cuisine emerged. Class differences were far more important dividing lines, and it was almost always upper-class food that was described in recipe collections and cookbooks.
