At AdventureWomen, we LOVE to EAT! One of our favorite things to bring back from our travels around the world are memories of great meals (shared with great company of course) and international recipes. Perhaps you’ve visited Delicious Destinations in our Ciao Bella blog? We hope so!
Foodies, the world over, have created an entire culture around taste, texture, aroma and visual presentation with top chef celebrities, and TV food experts. From Pinterest and Facebook snaps sharing of gourmet delights to the proliferation of network TV cooking shows to increased editorial focus on local “farm to table” buying, healthy eating habits and sustainable harvesting, food has taken center stage in media circles. Peer to Peer dining experiences leveraged by mobile apps is all the rage for local dining on the fly and even YouTube has funny cooking videos which are sure to make you laugh if not learn how to cook better! And with the Food Network and the Travel Channel’s “Now Reservations” and other food-infused Cable TV programming, the trend of “travel to eat” is just, well, HOT.
