One of the many wonderful things about travelling the world is discovering new dishes and cooking methods. The ultimate way to get to know a country's culinary specialities is to take a cooking class, you will find these in almost every city or town you visit and they're well worth spending a few dollars and a day or so of your time to take. In Battambang we took a half day … [Read more...]

Food around the world. Food posts from World Travel Family travel blog, and Chef. Regulr readers will know that Chef and I are food crazy and that food is a big focus on our travels. We do our best to find and enjoy authentic, local, world food wherever we go.
I posted today about our cookery course in Battambang, Cambodia. It was a fabulous experience. As part of the tour we visited the local market, something we do often, but on this occasion we stayed longer than usual and took more photos. I'm publishing these photos separately because sensitive viewers may find them a little unpleasant. Here is a quick tour of Battambang … [Read more...]
We've been in Istanbul for 5 nights and we're having a fantastic time. This morning I was so overcome by the fabulousness of the food that I felt the urge to write a post sharing the joy of eating in Istanbul. If you're hungry, you'd better go read something else, some delicious pictures coming. We've stayed in two quite different hotels so far, the wonderful Hotel Alilass … [Read more...]
Have you heard that Nepalese food isn't so great? I have. Luckily I've been to Nepal twice, so I can tell you that it's not true. Back when Chef and I trekked the Annapurna Circuit we enjoyed discovering Nepalese food and on our second trip, trekking the Everest Region with kids, we discovered new regional variations on local Nepal food. Sure, Dal Baht can become a bit … [Read more...]
We love British food at World Travel Family. We love most food, to be honest. We have a passion for Thai and a fixation with Indian, my husband loves food so much he's made a career out of it. He's a chef, busy now in a 5 starkitchen on Park Lane. Right now we're in the country of my birth, Britain. I'm on a mission to share British food with the world, it gets … [Read more...]
It seems so long ago now! On our first night in Lancaster county PA, in some nondescript but friendly motel, we were just settling down for the night when we hear a bellow from the next room: "Get yourself in that tub or I'll be opening a can of Whoop-Ass on y'all!" We didn't think people really said that. But they do and now so do I, with full Southern accent. The … [Read more...]
Since we've been back in the UK we've been revelling in the British food scene, privately and professionally. For those who don't know, my husband is a Chef and is loving working in London's top hotels again. Great food is easy to find in restaurants and in the shops, local markets being a particularly good place to find quality produce and lovingly-made local products. On … [Read more...]
Discovering Umbrian food was a massive highlight of our week in Umbria with Our Whole Village. Everybody knows Italian food to a greater or lesser extent, but food in Umbria has its own specialities and local flavours. We dined incredibly well during our week and have the expanded waistlines to show for it. It was worth it, it was good! I will never look at shop bought … [Read more...]
I'm never going to be able to eat dried pasta again after our time in Italy. Fresh, home-made pasta, produced with love from the finest ingredients is a totally wonderful eating experience. The pasta is softer, slightly spongy, and soaks up the flavours of the sauce. It's delicious and very more-ish. A kids cooking class in Italy gave my boys a chance to make pasta, from … [Read more...]
As we were tucking into a sensational plate of spaghetti with fresh black truffles the other night, it was mentioned that maybe, just possibly, we could go truffle hunting in Italy. A lady knew a lady who had a truffle dog and she maybe, just possibly, would take us on a truffle hunting expedition. Umbria is famous for truffles, we've enjoyed all sorts of truffle scented dishes … [Read more...]
