I don’t really consider myself a food blogger, which admittedly is an odd thing to write, as one of the BxlFF organisers. I typically consider myself a travel blogger, but food and travel are so inextricably linked for me, I can’t do one without the other. Whether I’m exploring a new neighbourhood in Brussels, or a new country in Asia, I am thinking about what I’m going to eat.
I know I’m not alone (all of my fellow BxlFF organisers are travel obsessed foodies too.) For me, there’s no better way to get to know a place, than by eating its regional and traditional dishes. Whether it’s soup dumplings in Hong Kong, or Paella in Spain, for me, food just tastes better in its land of origin. In fact, I have been known to travel for the sole purpose of tasting regional food.
So, for further travel + food inspiration, I went trolling through some of our members’ blogs, to discover great tastes around the world. Whether you book a ticket to taste them in their homelands, or simply use them to flavour your own cuisine, I hope these ten travel + food articles inspire you to taste the world.
