Travel Blog of the Day: Eat Your World
The internet is laden with blogs about travel. You don’t have time to read them all, you have two kids to get to extracurricular activities. This column will allow you to sift through the schlock and get back to baseball practice and boy scouts! Check us out on twitter at #travelblogoftheday.
This week, we are taking a look at travel blogs that have a definite lean towards the culinary as well. We have rounded up a handful of some really cool sites that when you get the chance you should check out.
So I am one of those people that want to eat what the locals do. I want to experience the culture in a location. I am willing to try the weird foods that are local delicacies and I want to bring home the local spices and recipes.
Today’s bloggers are right there with me. They write, eat and stay local, and I love it.
Laura Siciliano-Rosen and Scott Rosen are the powerhouse duo of writer and photographer behind Eat Your World and hail from New York City where they give culinary tours (I will be on one of those next trip to the NYC). They have a mission of keeping everything that they do native or traditional to destinations around the world.
Now, normally when I check out where people have been or they have amassed information from (which is something they highly encourage their readers to do) I will find about 20-40 places with decent information. Every once in a while I find something more. And then I looked at Eat Your World’s map:
Yeah. Wow. Ok. So they have my attention. So you can search by state, and I did, pulling up Georgia (my current state) to see what they had. They have six food photos with descriptions and one food memory. I love it; seven entries just in my home town. I love that it is user generated content. It so rounds out what they are doing as a team, it just makes sense.
Their blog is great, too. Whether it’s Derby Dining in Louisville or food markets in Athens, they have great write-ups and photos to go right along with them.
Their group of writers is diverse and spot on. The good news is that you can use their site as a reference and stop by once in a while to catch the updates. The blog itself posts once or twice a month and everything else is as it comes in.
Add these guys to your RSS feed. It is totally worth it.
