2016 a year in review

Last year was an exceptional year for food and travel. From crispy roast pork in Maui, to experiencing Ireland’s food evolution, magnificent lunch with a stunning view in Prague, almost fantastic mussels (actually more like salmon due to torrential rain and flooding) in Brussels, farm-stand lunch in Bergamo, and incredible everything in London.

There are many pictures and stories to share but let’s start with food trends that hopefully will not continue in 2017.

Green juice – let’s just eat real food in its natural form.

Wanna be “chefs” – folks with no specialized training but like to cook. Would you take medical advice from a YouTube trained doctor?

Copying established brands – I was shocked to see a stylized brand in Country A blatantly copied in Country B. Country A knew all about Country B but couldn’t do anything about it. I empathize with that brand.

Here’s to new exciting food adventures in 2017!
