Waiter, There’s A Bug In My Appetizer

Mealworm sushi from a past Explorers Club annual dinner. If python, larvae, scorpion, jellyfish and yak were on the dinner menu, one may assume a night camping in an Amazonian jungle was in store. But don’t start stuffing your pack with teepee and GORP just yet, because this dinner is […]

Skip The Beach, Visit The Real Mexico

I know that for most people, Mexico this time of year means beaches, beer funnels, lounge chairs, diving excursions, 600-thread count sheets, sunny weather, and nights slept on the floor of dingy jail cells while being protected by someone named “Big Hector” who for some reason has taken an interest […]

Top 10 Bars In Seville

Seville is not a cheap city. On the other hand, it is the epicentre of tapa culture and cuisine. The tapas here aren’t free, as they are in Granada for example, but they are good — maybe the best that Spain has to offer. And it isn’t as if there […]

The Worst Airplane Food (And What You Can Do About It)

If you’ve ever found yourself on a flight longer than eight hours, you have undoubtedly experienced the travesty of the modern airplane meal.

Lonely Planet’s Tastiest Food Places v. Diner Pizza

There is a restaurant called Post Corner Pizza in Darien, Connecticut, not far from where I grew up.

What Is It Like Eating In The World’s Best Restaurant?

Back in April it was announced that for the second year running, Copenhagen-based Noma was the best restaurant in the world. What — you may wonder as you read this post over a steaming bowl of freshly prepared Ramen noodles — is it like exactly having a meal at the […]

Cooking Class In Thailand: Learning Culture Through The Tongue

“Tan Khao Ma Rue Yung?” asks our cooking instructor, as she holds up ginger root, also known as khing in Thai, its sharp and slightly tangy scent awakening my sense of smell. We are standing in a Chiang Mai market choosing fresh ingredients for the day, and she has just […]

My 10 Ways To Revamp Argentina’s Top 10 Foods

Every food needs a little evolutionary jump-start once in a while. As a fan of mash-ups (some of my favorite foods include shepherd’s pie and bubble & squeak — a post-Thanksgiving swirling concoction of leftovers), I think that combining one’s culinary cultural upbringing with that of another can only bring about good […]

Speaking Easy, Eating Clandestinely In Barcelona

Clandestine dining finds its roots in the United States back in the Jazz days of the ’30s.
