Food Tales

They Travel for the Food and Booze! Flavorful Memories from Chefs, Cookbook Authors, and Food Writers We Love

by Team Fathom

Taste sensations in Hawaii, Argentina, and Tennessee.

There has been more than one occasion where we've realized whole albums of our vacation photos consist only of the meals, snacks, and drinks we consumed on the road.

Even then, photos don't always do the memory justice. Sometimes a food or beverage experience is so singular, so delicious, so mind-altering, that one flavor profile is forever linked to one place. We'll find ourselves telling and retelling those food tales to any appreciative, hungry audience willing to listen.

With that in mind, we asked a few chefs, cookbook authors, and food columnists we admire to tell us their favorite anecdote about food and travel. From fondue caves to Hawaiian cocktails, the tastes and memories are wildly different and entirely delectable. 

We make every effort to ensure the information in our articles is accurate at the time of publication. But the world moves fast, and even we double-check important details before hitting the road.
