A Journey Through Food

I want to go on a journey, a food journey that is. For a while now I’ve had this idea in my head about choosing random countries and learning more about their food and creating a dish honoring that certain country or region. I’m not a world class traveler by any means. Sad to say, this woman has never left the U.S. I have traveled to many places around the country…well…ate my way around the country I should also say. In the past I have always wanted to travel outside of the U.S, but I had a fear of flying. Well, that changed quickly when I met my now hubby I met my now hubby and some cherished friends that we all met through a sci-fi show online. With some prodding and planning from those friends, I flew for the first time to what would be a start of my own personal journey. After that my now hubby and I started dating. He lived in Boston and I’m here in SC so, yes I had to get over my fear very quickly.

I have always been intrigued and wanted to experience the food in other countries and learn about their food cultures. So now that I don’t mind flying….ok it still scares the heebijeebies out of me still but I will do it. I still haven’t been able to travel, but maybe one day. But until then I really would like to try to do this. I kind of think of this as my own personal challenge. Maybe I’m being a little too ambitious. Maybe I’m biting off more than I can chew…no pun intended…ok maybe a little. When I told my hubby what I was thinking he was already looking up what Ethnic grocery stores we have near us. He was born in Guatemala and still has family there so I have already learned so much about that region of foods and flavors. But there is so much more I’d love to learn and what better way than to do it through cooking.

I will still post some of my regular food posts, but I would really like to include you all on my journey and see what you think. So with a deep breath and fork in hand I will begin planning.

    This is very exciting, Christy! And you’re not being too ambitious. I’m already looking forward to reading about your journey and the dishes you’re inspired to create. Happy planning, and how wonderful that you have a very supportive husband. Congratulations on overcoming your fear of flying enough to even contemplate your new journey. 🤓🎉🥳🥂

      Thank you 😊 I’m going to cook the first one tonight. So fingers crossed it will turn out well and I should have it up in a day or so. Thank you for the encouragement, it’s so appreciated. I may need it later.😂
