Will Travel for Food

Can you think of anything else that immediately connects people more than “breaking bread” together? One thing I like to share with my family, friends, colleagues and clients is my travel experiences. Often times people ask why do I enjoy traveling….crazy question, right? But it’s a good one and everyone have several reasons why they like or don’t like to travel. I travel because I love to see new places, I love to embrace the culture, hang out with the locals, meet new people, learn new things, create new memories to share with generations after me and what I really love most is FOOD!

Noord, Aruba - A stop at the California Lighthouse for a Coconut Milkshake and a bite to eat.

I’ve always loved food, but don't we all! I remember as a kid my family would call me, “Mickey” remember the Oscar Mayer commercial kid from the 70s-80’s? Yeah, I really never understood why they called me that, but they told me it was because I always went fishing with my grandparents and apparently I was always eating something (I still don't get the connection).

I’ve always had a love for cooking, I stayed in the kitchen with my grandma and aunts, helping them, learning from them and just trying out new dishes. I started cooking a lot more often when I had my son almost 21 years ago. I’ll be honest, when it was just me, you know, ‘kid-free” and all, I didn’t do much cooking because I was always hanging out with friends, dining out and trying new restaurants, I didn’t even cook for my boyfriends…..nope, I wasn’t giving them wifey vibes if I had no intentions on being his wife! He may have gotten lucky and got some basic a** tacos or some fried chicken and a box of rice-a-roni, but I definitely wasn’t putting my foot all in to it.

Enjoying some Red Snapper & Mofongo in Puerto Rico

From a child and even now, I always enjoyed watching Food Network, The Travel Channel, I would google restaurants mentioned, take notes and find these places so I can try them, when I dine out I will look through the menu and see what ingredients were used, talk to the cooks when they would walk over to our table and introduce themselves, watch street vendors whip up quick fast bite and then I would go home and try to recreate different dishes that I enjoyed……did the dishes all turn out great? Absolutely not! But most of the time I nailed it and I would even add my own spin to it by switching up or adding different ingredients.

Shrimp Paella, a dish I learned how to make while visiting Spain

Another thing I enjoy doing is going to Food & Wine Festivals and at one moment I thought about enrolling in culinary school, not because I wanted to be a chef, I just wanted to learn so much more about food, how to properly measure ingredients… I just add them until I hear my ancestors whisper in my ear, “Stop now my child". I wanted to also learn the importance of a paring knife, staples ingredients that you should always keep in your kitchen and overall I just wanted to build more confidence in the kitchen.

My husband and I enjoy trying new places to eat, but I may be more of a foodie than him….Sor
