#21: For the Love of Food (and Travel): The Journey of a Wandering Foodie
What truly embodies a place is its food. And I've eaten a lot of good food in my country and abroad. I have a long way to go on my culinary journey. So, come along for the ride!
For as long as I could remember, I have loved food. The earliest memories of my epicurean adventures are when I first tried KFC’s fried chicken. Yes, it might not sound fancy. But fried chicken. OMG, you just can’t compete with that. Since that first bite, my palate has always been craving for more.
Now, if you’re expecting reviews of only Michelin-starred restaurants in the world, then you’ve come to the wrong place.
I’m not a food critic. But in a parallel universe, I aspire to be one. Therefore, I decided to carve out a new section as part of my Being Curious brand.
I realized I needed to talk about food.
Food that has nourished me, food that keeps me striving for more, food that can be found in the nooks and crannies of the world.
This venture may turn out to be a food blog or a travel blog, or an entire YouTube series. I don’t know. For now, I want to relive my food memories. Showcase the journeys I’ve undertaken to have a good meal.
Street food, restaurant food, Michelin-starred, mom’s homemade cooking, you name it, and I’ll be talking about it.
Let’s call it my ode to the first love of my life—food.
My foodie side is not a side I can ignore. I’m so passionate about what my next meal is going to be that it can annoy people. Food is exciting. Good food warms my soul and makes everything better.
I live to eat. Simple.
I’ll also finally have a legitimate reason for taking dozens of food pictures. Instagram used to be their home, but now they have a new home: For the Love of Food (and Travel).
Now, I’m young in my culinary journey, and there are many more destinations within India and globally that I have to explore. So, I’m only getting started.
Come along for the journey and the adventures.
I’ll see you next week.
