A few months ago, I invited my fellow travel bloggers to share with me their favorite dishes to travel the world for. The result was a mouthwatering display of 21 really tasty dishes. You can’t look at any of the photos without immediately becoming so hungry you want to gnaw your arm off.

As you probably already know, or can tell from the copious amounts of food pictures plastered all over my site, I love to travel for food.

Until I met my amazing and adorable husband, Nick, and we started exploring food and wine destinations during our travel,  I had no idea the limitless benefits I would gain from traveling for food. I can assure you, now that this very important lesson has been learned, no matter where our adventures take us, food is a central part of the trip.

For that reason, I wanted to create a larger, more comprehensive food guide – a sort of food traveler’s companion – that would introduce the world of food to my readers and hopefully encourage some of you to start traveling for food, as well.

Thus, today I am unveiling our brand new COMPLETELY FREE ebook: 101 Dishes to Travel the World For.

If you’re interested in learning to make some of these awesome dishes at home, and pair them with wine and beer, take a look at our Food & Wine Recipe series, where we introduce a new International recipe every month that you can easily make at home. In a few months, we’ll have an International foods cookbook to share with you, loaded with all kinds of fun and delicious recipes that you can make at home. Why should we only be able to get these foods while traveling, when they’re easy to make at home.

Why travel for food?

Have you ever noticed how even the faint aroma of something you ate on a vacation instantly takes you back to the moment you experienced it? Eating is one of the few things we do that utilizes all five senses. Not only do we taste our food, we touch it, smell it, undress it with our eyes and listen to it sizzle in the pan. It is because of this that intentionally experiencing food while we travel increases the intensity of the memories we build.

Another major reason to travel for food is that food is an essential part of life and community. It’s what makes us who we are as a people. Without it, there is no authentic travel experience. Isn’t it the times you congregated around a dinner table with new friends, had lunch with a local family or tried something you never thought you’d eat (like deep-fried crickets!) that you remember the most? Those are the moments when the best memories are made.

I read a lot of blog posts and travel articles about how to save money on food while traveling and how to avoid street food so you don’t get sick. It makes me sad to think of all the amazing things I would have missed out on in a country if I had taken that advice. I question whether you can experience the real, authentic side of a culture without embracing the food. It’s not just about putting food in your mouth. It’s not about whether you even like the food, or food in general. Maybe you’re a vegetarian or vegan or gluten-free, for that matter. It’s about the vast and dynamic culture of the country that can only be learned through the food and the community that is built around sharing a meal together.

    I’m not the best water in the world so I find eating abroad sometimes challenging, especially through my years of vegan eating! That said I totally agree with you, when people say to avoid street food I feel sad for them as that is often the best insight into the loca culture!

    • Laura Lynch says:

      Even if you’re a picky eater, you can always find something that you’ll like in another country, and part of learning to eat new things is just trying them.

  3. Carmen @ Carmen's Luxury Travel says:

    I love traveling and one of the best things about it is tasting new food everywhere we go. That’s great that you put together an ebook with recipes from all over the world. I’m going to download it, and check it out.

    • Laura Lynch says:

      I agree. Tasting new foods is one of the best things about traveling. The book doesn’t have any recipes, sadly. It’s just food porn. The cookbook will be out later this year! I hope you come back and check it out.

  4. Shannon says:

    Traveling and food! Two of my favorite things to do in life. Amazing article and I’ll be sure to download this book as it’s something I’m sure will come in handy while traveling.

    I’m actually pretty stoked for the ebook. I’ve found that when we’re home we’re in a cooking rut. Thank you for sharing this!!

  6. Miranda Post says:

    I totally travel for food – if I read about an out of the way nook that serves great pasta, seafood or ice cream, I’m there. Downloading the ebook tonight! Congrats on curating such a tasty endeavor.

  7. Angela says:

    Food is such a big part of fully experiencing a new city, state or country. I completely agree with your thoughts on street food. We’ve had some of the best and cheapest plates from either carts or food trucks lined up on the street.

  8. Carol Colborn says:

    Love that you are giving away your e-book for free! Love finding out about great dishes from around the world. Thanks for this gift!

    I’m a shameless food following traveller. Cannot get enough of the local cuisine when I’m on the road. Thanks for the e-book!

  10. Alana Gidycz says:

    I’m a chef so all my travel tends to be totally food oriented. I love the inspiration to create new dishes traveling gives me.

    • Laura Lynch says:

      I love it too. I’m always inspired to make these dishes at home. You should check out our food and wine pairing recipe series, if you haven’t already.

  11. Kristen Sarra says:

    All I do when I travel is eat! I’m illogical in the fact that I truly believe calories don’t count while on the road. This is such a great idea for an eBook! I loved your 21 Dished to Travel the World for article so I know this book will be a hit 🙂

  12. Anna @ shenANNAgans says:

    I only travel to eat. Haha! Seriously tho, food travel is one of the best ways to experience the world and a culture. Signing up for my copy, pretty interested to see how many of the dishes I will have eaten. 🙂
