We came back from our Umbria culinary travel, a road trip, with the car exploding. We had, as always, gone a bit too far with wine, oil, and local specialties shopping.
When I call myself a foodtrotter, I’m trying to explain how deeply linked culture and food are to me. When I travel around, eating is not only the best way to connect with the place; it is also a charming adventure.
Spices, cooking methods, local ingredients, foreign influences: that’s a lot of information about a place and the people who live there. The story around a dish is usually the story of a community. And I want to know it.
Here is where I talk about my traveling adventures. Mostly about what I ate, but also what I felt when I was there. And of course, the pictures of my trip.
Don’t you dare skip e-mailing me if you need any info about the place, routes, or else.
