#Follow Friday: The Best of Travel in Social Media (Part 7!)

Food & Wine, Websites and Blogs — By on February 17, 2012 at 12:00 pm


One of the aspects of traveling that I love the most is food. I try to ignore any sort of guilt that comes with overindulging and  thankfully I can usually chalk it up to being on vacation. In Scotland, a meal of neeps, tatties and (vegetarian) haggis found its way into my wary heart; in Portugal my friend and I sipped capirinhas like locals; and after a treacherous donkey ride to the top of the island of Santorini I gobbled down a fry-filled lamb gyro like it was my job. In honor of food, glorious food, today I offer up 5 so-good-you-could-eat them culinary travel blogs.

This week I’ll let the blogs themselves do most of the talking.

Wild Junket: With the tagline “Travel Light, Travel Far,” Wild Junket is a site laden heavy with inspiring posts that will undoubtedly take you all over. Written by travel writer and photographer Nellie Huang and her partner Alberto Molero, Wild Junket is truly a culmination of the evident wanderlust of this dynamic duo. While not all posts are strictly culinary, those are the ones that catch my eye the most, like the world’s most bizarre foods (live, squirming octopus? Oh god) and famous markets around the world. Follow WildJunket on Facebook or on Twitter @WildJunket!

Eating Asia: Eating Asia is the brainchild of the husband and wife duo Robyn Eckhardt (freelance food and travel writer) and David Hagerman (editorial and commercial photographer). This combination makes for both visually and intellectually captivating blog posts every time, as they travel around the world documenting their favorite encounters. Most recently it’s boza in Istanbul and chicken chops as Malaysian comfort food. Follow Eating Asia on Facebook or on Twitter  @EatingAsia!

Accidental Epicurean: Accidental Epicurean was a blog I fortunately stumbled upon, and ironically so, their site’s tagline is “Stumbling upon the good life, savoring food, discovering wine, and exploring places.” The aesthetically pleasing lay out to this culinary blog is almost (almost) as yum as the food and drink posts from all over the world. You can browse the site by Location, Recipes, Eat & Drink, and more. I’ve been scoping out my favorite meal, brunch, and it all looks delicious.

Rambling Spoon: Author Karen of the Rambling Spoon culinary travel blog describes herself as follows: “I’m a journalist, author and media trainer. My kitchen forever smells of garlic and curry. And much like my mother, I start thinking of dinner long before breakfast…” Unlike Karen, I myself am always thinking of breakfast. Yet I still love this blog and its beautiful images. Read on as Karen talks everything from coffee in Cambodia to wasabi slaw in the summertime. And there are recipes galore! Follow Rambling Spoon on Facebook or on Twitter @RamblingSpoonMorning coffee

Our Tasty Travels: Erin and Brett are American expats living in Taiwan, tasting their way through countries all over the world. This is perhaps the most food-centric of our travel blogs this week, and Mmm! I could click around this site forever. The photo of the week is chips, cheese and guacamole… I shouldn’t be reading this when I’m hungry…! Follow Our Tasty Travels on Facebook or on Twitter @OurTastyTravelsChips and guacamole
