I’d be lying if I said I had great expectations regarding the food side of things during our USA trip. Call it prejudice, call it awareness, I had a feeling the USA favors quantity over quality. We were sitting in a plane to Las Vegas and about to take off … more »

We’ve really been enjoying the culinary adventure that we’ve been having in the USA. Food is a great part of culture and connects you to the people of a given place. This is an amazing salmon and cream cheese bagel that we had in Santa Rosa, California. The salmon is … more »
If you’re starving… head to the USA! This country serves the most massive portions of food we’ve ever come across in 5 continents! For instance, this “slice” of carrot cake! Served by a cowboy inspired diner in Route 66, Arizona, this thing would be enough to feed an entire family! … more »
