Trying food from different parts of the World is one of the best things about traveling!
There is nothing more basic and yet more real and down-to-earth than experiencing food as locals do! This is something that humans do every day, so more than seeing monuments and touristic sights, eating should make you feel somehow local no matter where you are.

When in Rome, do like Romans. And when in India, eat samosas! Samosas are, quite probably, one of the most popular Indian snacks known all over the world. Although eaten all year long, they are particularly comforting on winter days: the caloric overload of a couple of samosas along with a … more »
What happened to us while in Lima is proof that some of the most enjoyable experiences while traveling are those that you don’t even plan! After spending a few weeks in Peru, we were already die-hard fans of the local cuisine: intense flavors, ingredients from the land and sea, jungle … more »
How can fries and sausages, being such a straight-forward eat, become such a gastronomic icon in a land with such rich cuisine? I don’t know how, but salchipapas have certainly won the cravings of many Latins who love to snack! Salchipapas consist of a plate of potato fries topped with … more »
As chocolate lovers it was a pleasure to learn how to make our own chocolate. Peru is a very large producer of cocoa beans and I am glad we did this workshop in a place that feels like “the real deal”. If we would have done it somewhere else, far … more »
Magnolia Bakery in New York City has to have the most DELICIOUS cupcakes ever! We used to eat their cupcakes in Dubai and well, couldn’t resist when we saw them in New York City. We’re suckers for the authentic experience!
