In which Australian freelance journalist Cara Waters expounds her food passion with a travelogue, concentrated in London and Melbourne but in all points gastronomic. Recipes, wry observations (“cook books… my porn”) and readable reviews following anonymous visits make this one a treat. Visit Gourmet Chick.
A professional site with a nice opening skyline of spices and an ethical, grass-roots approach to food – no mere fine dining – makes Georgina Ingham’s mega-blog a toothsome place to tarry. This site is so useful, it even has weight conversions. Prop up your iPad and go… Visit Culinary Travels.
The Food Explorer
The scrapbook graphic sets the tone: this is a real traveller’s romp around the world’s oddest foods in the company of journalist and nutritionist Catherine Quinn. For example, recent posts include the joys and perils of eating grilled testicles in Argentina and rotting shark in Iceland. Visit The Food Explorer.
The Boy Who Ate The World
This is included not because most food blogs seem to be by women and we needed a chap, but also because it’s a goodie, with a cool white-on-black presentation and a London base. It’s a restaurant reviewing site: Guan Cha (the boy in question) mostly reviews London restaurants, but adds experiences from his various travels. This is a fellow who eats at a new place about 20 times a month and brings his voracity to the plate. Visit The Boy Who Ate The World.
Food and Travel Blog
Created by Yunike Setiyono, an Indonesian now resident in the US, this blog is notable for exhaustive descriptions (“layers of thinly pounded yellowfin tuna served on top of foie gras and toasted baguette, topped with shaved chives and extra virgin olive oil”) and most importantly, great quality close-ups of the author’s soon-to-be-devoured comestibles. Also context pictures of chic restos and sunsets. Glam, with a lot of Eastern flavour. Visit Food and Travel Blog.
