SOPHIA KING SENIOR COMMUNICATIONS EXECUTIVE AT KNIGHT FRANK WHERE IS YOUR BUCKET-LIST DESTINATION? The Maldives, Giraffe Manor in Kenya, the Northern Lights... the list is a work-in-progress! A vegetarian feast served in a family-run restaurant in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. From a makeshift kitchen, the chef cooked up dishes of mouth-watering delights, which were carefully carried over by her young granddaughter. I stumbled across the place after a long day travelling, and the food and welcoming environment made me forget that I was thousands of miles from home. WHAT’S THE BEST MEAL YOU’VE EVER HAD?

I once wrote a novel called Death On the Ice about Captains Scott and Oates and I only made it as far as New Zealand when doing the research, which was their final port of call before the ice. So I’d love to see the white continent for real.

New Zealand – partly for the incredible landscapes, the amazing mix of beaches and mountains etc, but also because I’m a huge fan of NZ pop culture, specifically actor Taika Waititi and Flight of the Conchords .

WHAT’S THE BEST MEAL YOU’VE EVER HAD?

Lunch at the Bauer Palazzo hotel in Venice. The rain was so biblical that the hotel had its flood gates in action. We were inside the beautiful dining room facing the canal, watching the drama, eating our way through the Venetian specialities: cuttlefish in squid ink sauce with polenta, and lots of red wine.

Sitting next to Albert Roux at The Point, an old Rockefeller summer camp in upstate New York turned hotel. At that time the entire kitchen was staffed with young men and women from Le Gavroche and they pulled out all the stops for Chef.

To take my two young boys on their first safari, ideally self-drive with a tent on the roof of a 4x4, to Africa where I met my wife while we were both working in Kenya.

WHAT’S THE BEST MEAL YOU’VE EVER HAD?

On my honeymoon, in a roadside restaurant on the island of Korčula, Croatia. All cooked by the woman who ran it, using ingredients visible from the outdoor table where we were sitting.

Sushi served at a beach shack in Montañita, Ecuador on our last day on honeymoon. Ridiculously fresh fish and the most romantic sandy setting.

I was in my early teens, and my parents had taken us to small restaurant in Corfu. There was no menu, we just pointed at what we thought looked tastiest. I’m not sure I knew what I was choosing, but it was the most succulent squid in an amazing sauce.
