Food and travel go hand-in-hand, but finding authentic eats can be tough. Luckily, Travel + Leisure is hosting a one-hour Twitter chat on how to eat like a local—wherever you are. The chat celebrates our Eat Like a Local series: T+L teamed up with CNN and iReporters (like you!) to find the best local food around, from warm scones in Canada to the catch-of-the-day in Abu Dhabi.

Join our Twitter chat Wednesday, March 27 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
