Best Snack Foods to Eat in Amsterdam

In college, I spent a semester studying abroad in Amsterdam—and after four months, my jeans had gotten pretty snug (even though I biked everywhere, hmm…). While the city might be known best for Heineken and legalized marijuana, it’s also a serious snacking destination. From traditional Dutch fare to grocery store staples, here are six bites…


The Muffuletta That Changed My Mind About What a Sandwich Can Be

When I visit a city for the first time, one of my top priorities is deciding what to eat. I’m on a perpetual quest for food that’s utterly unique and essential to the culture of that place. The only hard part is weeding out the tourist traps from the places that shouldn’t be missed. In…


Free Three-Month Trip to Italy from Airbnb

Hi, hello, ciao, there’s someone I’d like to introduce you to. It’s future-you—more specifically, it’s five-months-in-the-future you. Five-months-in-the-future you lives in a charming countryside village in Southern Italy called Grottole. (It’s in the part right between the sole and the heel of the boot.) You start every day with a cappuccino and a lesson in…


Three Days in Seattle – Playful Cooking

Our New Year started with a short trip to Seattle. We explored the city and had a quick cooking demo along cookbook signing at Book Larder. We had been to Seattle before but it was only for a short few hours during our Portland trip. However, that was during pre-baby phase. Avyan loves traveling and…


The Vast, Incredible World of Peruvian Sandwiches

It’s late morning on a Sunday in Lima, the coastal capital of Peru. The sky is a dull gray color, which the locals call panza de burro—”donkey’s belly”—typical of the city’s skyline for all but maybe three months out of the year. Most residents of the “thrice-crowned city of kings,” as it was known in…


Best Restaurants in Mexico City

When my best friend asked if I wanted to visit Mexico City with her, I didn’t so much say “yes” as I did involuntarily expel an affirmation so shrill, it prompted a family of birds to flee the snow-coated fire escape of my apartment. Unfortunately for those traveling with me, it wasn’t the last time…

Top 10 Food Destinations in 2019

Come January and we all want the same things: We want to cook more. To exercise more. To call Grandma more, say “no” more, read more. And travel more. Don’t tell my other New Year’s resolutions, but that one is my favorite. Traveling, for me, has never been about sights to see or museums to…


5 of Our Favorite Bakeries in Brooklyn

Sometimes, it takes a tourist to show you around your own turf. Such was the case a few weeks ago when my friends from North Carolina visited New York City on a research trip for their in-the-works bakery-meets-restaurant. They headed to my neck of Brooklyn for a bakery crawl and asked if I wanted to…


Our Hokkaido Adventure · i am a food blog i am a food blog

I love nature. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time in cities, but I’ve definitely discovered that there’s something about being in nature that grounds me in a way the city never does. Nature is energizing in a pure, romantic way – and by romantic I mean in the Romanticisim sense: there’s just something…
