Welcome to our recipes and cooking classes section! On this page, we’ll share with you some of the favorite recipes we’ve collected from around the world. We’ll also review the cooking classes we’ve participated in on our travels.
Food helps you to experience a place
We love food and, for us, it’s one of the biggest parts of traveling. Looking back on our travel experiences, food and traveling often go hand in hand. Simply put, travel and food are always intertwined. We love eating street food, as well as trying out new restaurants for local flavors, cultures, and customs from the places we’ve visited. And we generally don’t do the expensive stuff. The recipes and cooking classes that we share with you are almost always very reasonably-priced. Anyone can do them. In our opinion, some of the best food in the world comes from places that are nothing more than a vendor with a cart on the street or a small restaurant in a back alley.
Vegetarian recipes and cooking classes
Michael is a vegetarian, but that doesn’t mean that he can’t experience a place through his taste buds. We’ve turned into creative souls that discover how to fulfill the desire to taste a place through a vegetarian lifestyle. In our travels, we always try to find vegetarian-friendly places. Sometimes, it’s a challenge, but it’s one that is usually easy to overcome. We’ve discovered that, most times, all you need to do is ask and a restaurateur or vendor will make your meal a vegetarian meal. And most cooking classes we’ve done or researched these days tend to have vegetarian options.
Bonding over food
Food is one thing that everybody in the world has in common. Everywhere you go, food is a great way to break the ice, and eventually turn into an experience of the new place with locals. We’ve bonded with locals through food in our travels. From camping out with the Bedouin in a Jordanian desert, to attending a cooking class in Ubud, Bali, and everything in between. We have experienced many ways to appreciate how locals welcome visitors through food and drink. It is a big part on how we have fallen in love with the people and places we’ve visited.
