Must Eat in Milwaukee

By Steph | July 17, 2013

I know that when most people think of awesome food cities in the US, Milwaukee isn’t the first to spring to mind. Places like New York, Portland and even DC are bit flashier with what they have to offer, while the Midwest is woefully modest. Even so, I had high hopes for the food in […]

How to Eat Like a Local in DC

By Steph | May 21, 2013

Most visitors would never know it, but the Washington DC area is actually one of the best areas in the country for really authentic international cuisine. You name it, we’ve got it, from Bolivian to Chinese to Ethiopian, all fairly cheap and bringing total realness. From the make-up of downtown DC however, the city seems […]

How to Eat Well in Rome (And Avoid the Food Traps)

By Steph | April 4, 2013

I am obsessed with Italian food and especially Roman food. Coming from a big Italian family I grew up on homemade meatballs, fresh lasagnas, and anise-flavored pizzeles. I never really thought of this as any particular kind of “cuisine”, it was just warm hearty food. Eventually, I realized that not everyone has a saucy Nonna […]

What is Finnish Food?

By Steph | March 17, 2013

“What do they eat in Finland?” I asked Mike, almost immediately after we found out we were headed there (this was quickly followed by “how do we not freeze to death?”). I couldn’t name a single Finnish dish, and I really had no idea what to expect. I mean, in a place so frozen most […]

While traveling America this summer, I got the chance to taste dozens of dishes that were unique to the area I was visiting. I’ve already shared my favorite foods from the East Coast and a few of the foods that are so important to a region there’s a battle of which dish is better. This […]

How to Eat Well on a Small Budget

By Steph | October 21, 2012

My post on the prohibitive costs of French cuisine (which you guys totally lambasted me on by the way! I promise, I’m not dumb- I did make an effort to eat well) got me thinking about all of the many workarounds for food-lovers on a small budget. While it may not be possible to try ALL […]

US Regional Favorite Foods: North East

One of the best ways to really get an authentic feel wherever you’re visiting or traveling through, is to taste the local food. And there’s no better way to do that than by trying the iconic regional dish associated with the city or region. These dishes gives us a glimpse at what makes the area […]

Arabic Sweets: An Introduction to Middle Eastern Desserts

By Maria Laborde | September 25, 2012

Ahhh, the world of Arabic sweets and Middle Eastern desserts. As a Latina, my sweet tooth is omnipresent. I remember my mom requiring dessert after every meal– including breakfast. And so the ritual followed me to the Arab world, where I lived, studied, traveled and eat all the Arabic sweets for 16 months. Below are […]

What is Fijian Food?

By Steph | June 14, 2012

My first move when I plan to visit a new country? Find out about the food. Even before Eat the World, both Mike and I have been major international foodies. Visiting a new country and learning all about their unique cuisines is like unwrapping a present for us. Unfortunately, there isn’t much out there on […]

The Weird World of Colombian Fruits

By Steph | October 18, 2011

Most people think of cocaine and coffee when considering Colombian agriculture, but in actuality Colombia is a spectacularly fertile place. Not only does Colombia grow a large percentage of the flowers imported to the USA, it’s got an incredible diversity of fruits. Seriously, Colombia has fruits you’ve never even heard of, never even dreamed of! […]

Taiwanese Cuisine: Five Iconic Taiwan Foods

Ask someone who has been to Taiwan before what their favorite aspects of the trip were and “the food” will invariably be one of the top answers — and with good reason. Taiwanese cuisine is intricate and full of history. Cultural influences from indigenous aboriginal tribes, a history dotted with varying country rules, and the […]

10 Foods You Must Eat In China

Chinese food is surprising delicious. I had no idea what to expect because the only thing I knew about Chinese food was American-Chinese takeaway. To anyone who hasn’t been to China yet and is going soon, here’s an article for you. Or hopefully convince you enough to go to China because of this post. Sweet […]
