We've just completed one year of non-stop family travel. We made it from Australia, to Asia, to Europe, to Central and North America and back to Europe. We are very into food, my husband is an exec chef, I'm just a big food freak. We've tried some amazing new dishes, bur what were our food highlights from one year of travel? In no particular order, here are a few of our … [Read more...]

Are you a morning person? I am, so that first coffee and something to eat are very welcome, particularly if I'm sitting overlooking a stunning, deserted Thai beach or a sleepy Central American town just starting to wake up. We've been sampling breakfast around the world for almost 4 years now, 50+ countries, here are some global breakfast highlights and disasters. You can … [Read more...]
Mmmm...curry for breakfast! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and Sri Lankan breakfast has been the highlight of my early morning eating experiences over the 10 months of our nomadic travel adventure. (Read more about who we are, what we're doing and why, here.) Large amounts of delicious, gently spiced dishes always put a smile on my face in the early morning. A … [Read more...]
We are having a very nice time here in Antigua Guatemala, quietly living our lives for a month. the Guatemalan food culture in Antigua is very different to what we're used to on the backpacker trail in Asia. For some reason we expected everywhere to have plenty of inexpensive eating options, it's not really the case here. So lets talk a bit about food and where to eat in … [Read more...]
We've just spent an amazing few days in New Orleans at Mardi Gras and, honestly, we spent a lot of that time eating. In our whole 1 month USA road trip, I think New Orleans offered us the best food, even on our moderate budget. We did wonder a little, where to eat out in New Orleans with kids, because we ran into quite a few places where children weren't allowed. Signs … [Read more...]
We like to try new foods as we travel around the world, but chocolate coated bacon? Seriously? We haven't found anything that bizarre since Marmite flavoured fudge. We found this new and exciting culinary invention at the Bird in Hand Farmers' Market deep in Amish country, Pennsylvania. It's just up the road from the unusually named town of Intercourse. We stopped at the … [Read more...]
Everybody knows that Marmite is the best tasting yeasty spread in the world ( this is where I duck and cover while the Aussies throw abuse at me!). But would you fancy Marmite flavour fudge? We've tried Marmite flavour chocolate before, you can find that fairly easily in the UK. It's nice, but more as something to try than to eat regularly. Even for me, a total Marmite … [Read more...]
What is a hopper? I'd read about them in the Sri Lankan food section of the Lonely Planet, but until our 2014 month in Sri Lanka I'd never seen or tried one. That was because my first trips to Sri Lanka were as a much richer tourist staying in fancy hotels often eating at the more expensive beach restaurants. To get hoppers you needed to go to the local eateries, the roti huts … [Read more...]
If you've been following our Facebook page over the last month, you'll have seen me alternately complaining and raving about food in Sri Lanka. Food is a big part of our travel experience, we like to try as many new foods as we can and, hopefully, enjoy them. (For non-regular readers, my husband is an Executive Chef and I'm a food nut). We were really looking … [Read more...]
What is Thai food? Most of us know these days. Many have eaten Thai food in a restaurant at least once, so maybe a guide to Thai food for beginners is a little redundant. All the same, Chef and I thought we'd put together a beginner's guide to Thai food to help you out if Travel in Thailand is new to you. Maybe you're taking kids to Thailand ( great plan!) and wondering what … [Read more...]
