Food writing

Food, Glorious Food

While the site didn’t start out being about food, the more I traveled the more I obsessed over the new dishes I tried—how food connects people around the world. That obsession culminated in a book about traveling through food.

This landing page is divided into the different categories of writing that are food related.

Bon appetit!

1. Gluten Free Guides

As a celiac who has struggled to find food safely as I’ve traveled, I wanted to put together a set of tips and posts for people who were anxious to eat while they explored the world.

For resources specific to celiacs, and long-form gluten free guides with detailed translation cards, please see my Gluten Free Travel page.

2. Food History and Narrative

Pieces about where certain dishes or ingredients come from, and how they are connected within the wide world we live in. This category also includes the longer form food writing about people and places that I’ve penned during my years of stuffing my face around the world.

For all of the food history pieces, see here.

3. Recipes from Around the World

Readers started to ask me for some recipes a few years back, and it has been fun to occasionally post instructions on how to make one of the dishes I’ve loved and experienced on the road. This category features these recipes in simple terms, often with links to books from that country that you can read and enjoy.

4. Food Artwork and Posters

As part of the Legal Nomads site, I’ve started an eCommerce site that features hand-drawn, one-of-a-kind maps of food that were commissioned specifically for me. I’ll be doing 10 countries in all, and they are all found on the Legal Nomads store.

These posts feature the maps as well as some of the other fun artwork I’ve commissioned, like my “Say no to Olives” shirts.

5. Inspiring Reads for Food Lovers

A book is not a living tree, unlike a blog post. Thus, while I am thrilled to share the tips and tricks and many resources I’ve gathered together in The Food Traveler’s Handbook, I also wanted to house additional sources of knowledge. This page will continue to grow, even before a 2nd edition of the book is released, with books to read, sites to learn from and delicious food to focus on from around the world.
