A Taste for Adventure: Top 25 Culinary Travel Bloggers to Follow for 2014


We take everything with us when we travel – our clothes, our money, and especially our appetites. Navigating meal time abroad (whether you’re in the kitchen at a luxurious FlipKey rental or out to eat at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant) can be a thrill at best and downright frightening at worst. We all need a little guidance on proper culinary etiquette and recommendations when traveling the globe to help us answer thousands of pressing questions like: What are the must-try dishes in Africa? How much should I be paying for authentic Asian cuisine? Will these red berries kill me if I eat them? So with that in mind we’ve compiled our list of the top 25 culinary travel bloggers to follow. These writers will wow you with their pictures, recipes, and advice for eating globally – most of them coming straight from the source.
