All farmers markets should do this. A separate stall selling recipe portions from stuff around the market. As the seller you would have to be quick on your toes to deal with stuff selling out and so on. Fun challenge. I think it would definitely boost overall sales at a market. At your average retail store not so much because people aren't there with the mindset to try new things.

Could well imagine Expedia having another tab "Ideas" alongside "Flights" "Hotels" "Cruises" etc.

As a user Id be looking for well written reviews from similar people to me.

Maybe you could aggregate travel blogs and make them richer somehow. Give people some ideas on destination and let them browse a map. Maybe you see the whole route someone took and can clickthru to the blog entry.

they've recently added a few additional features to the explore section of their site.

Re: Your ideas are worthless, and I'm here to prove it

just to give a little more info on what my buddy said he was looking for. you'd enter in your starting location and say, I want to drive, I have 3 days total, I don't want to go to X and Y, I want to be able to stay in Z kind of hotel. Now give me a few ideas of where I can go and where I'd be staying.
