Travel Blog of the Day: Epicuring

The internet is laden with blogs about travel. You don’t have time to read them all, you have to get to a Major League Baseball game.  This column will allow you to sift through the schlock and get back to finishing up work to cut out early! 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.

I have always been fascinated with the Californian culture in general, but especially their food.  Fish tacos and endless bowls of guacamole with a California pizza and a side of sushi, that hits the spot. 

Today we are going to northern California for our blog with a culinary twist.


Susie Wyshak and Laiko Bahrs (in the photo here with Chef William Werner) are the founders of Epicuring and epic epicureans as well.  They have created to bring the tourists and locals alike a culinary experience, “worth writing home about.”  They desire to take you on a journey through events, farms, and organizations; connecting with new friends and creating new food fans.

The site is pretty straight forward with a food and travel guide and additional lists as well as section for their blog. They are based in San Francisco, so most of their info comes from up there.  There are other places that peek their head out every once in a while. This site will be best used as a reference guide as they do not post very often. 

There is a ton of great information in the site, but if you are looking for something more current, follow their social media.  They really are great cultivators and researchers and they always have a ton to share.  As a foodie, I dig their vibe. Where they are a little different than most culinary blogs is that they also do consulting on the side.  They are culinary marketing and publicity consultants as well as Bay Area food and adventure concierges. 

So check them out.  Bookmark them and when you are heading to Northern California, check out the site and drop them a note.  We foodies have to stick together!
