    Worth trying/recommending

    I wrote a report about my recent holiday and my teacher has marked my mistakes, most of which I can correct but for example I wrote: 'Worth trying are local dishes' and: 'Worth recommennding is...', they have been marked as mistakes but I don't know how to correct these sentences. Can anyone help me?

    It would be more natural to write "Local dishes are worth trying" and "I recommend X".

    'On certain days of the week in Barcelona's Placa Espanya impressive shows are performed combining water and illuminations.' What's wrong with this one?
