Stories, thoughts and happenings from my first year long trip around the world.

What is “good”?

It was easy to dismiss Córdoba, Argentina as boring and uneventful. Even easy to say the food sucked and was all the same. In many ways both of these statements are true. After the never ending parade of parties, museums, concerts, bars and tours of Buenos Aires it’s not a surprise that the second [...]

Chau Argentina!

A little bittersweet to be wrapping up another city, let alone a country I have been looking forward to visiting for years. But, this year is all about exploring and finding new adventures!

Food is a Journey

Dining at Siete Fuegos last night was a beautiful experience for many reasons. Almost least of which was the food...

Building a community

"A community is a group of people who agree to grow together." – Simon Sinek Tucked away in a hot kitchen with sweat rolling down your temples, the printer ticks away and orders roll up onto the floor, it’s easy to disregard everything past the bin at the end of the line. In fact it’s [...]

Asados, Malbec and New Friends

"Average food with people you love is a lot better than Kobe beef with an asshole." – Penn Jillette I heard this quote on a goofy show back in August of 2005 and it's stuck with me since. It reminds me that regardless of how much effort a chef or cook puts into a meal, [...]
