What is a Food Travel Blog?
There are travel blogs. There are food blogs. Travel blogs provide stories and tips on how to travel. Food blogs tend to focus on the food in a few destinations, maybe a particularly city, often times they focus on recipes, or restaurant reviews.
With Husband In Tow is a food travel blog, and as part of that I want to share a series of food travel guides. So, what does that mean?
Food travel is a different way to travel. It’s exploring a culture through its food. It’s a way to travel for food. It’s searching for the perfect food tour. It’s planning your journey as a food trip.
We travel on our stomachs, and as a result, have eaten a lot of food all around the world. We aim to find the best we can in a foodie destination. We try to learn from the food we eat and the people we meet.
What Is A Food Travel Guide?
We often receive questions from our readers and followers about food and travel. They want to know where to eat and what to eat, when they are planning their food holidays. Although there is a nifty little search function on the top of each page on this blog, I wanted to centralize this information, and make it easier for people to find our tips on food travel.
Our Food Travel Guides provide the stories behind the food: the chefs, the wine makers, and even the ingredients. They are meant to inspire people to get out there and travel, and to explore a destination in a unique way.
But, these food tourism guides also provide specific recommendations, such as which foods to track down when exploring a new foodie destination, which food markets to explore, and where to go eat all of this amazing food.
As we continue to explore, and continue to refine our food travel niche, I hope this selection of food travel guides continues to grow . . . I am just hoping my waistline does not grow along with it. Because that is one of the occupational hazards of being a food travel blogger.
Europe Food Travel Guides
Our first trip overseas together was to Europe, which means I’ve been traveling to Europe With Husband In Tow for almost 20 years. Of course, we only started sharing tips from our culinary vacations over the last few years. Now, we are sharing our European travel tips from “home” – ever since we moved to Girona, Spain!
We’ve spent a lot of time eating in Europe the last few years, all in great sacrifice to bring you the best foods to eat. From the best food market in Barcelona, to the best pasta in Italy. From how to find the best seafood in Lisbon to how to cruise the Rhone River in search of great French food and wine.
All this and more in our European Food Travel Guides. We offer separate food and travel guides for Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Italy. But, we also have some great tips for England, France, Greece, the Czech Republic, and Eastern Europe.
Asia Food Travel Guide
We lived in Southeast Asia for about 4 years, so we’ve spent a good amount of time on some fabulous culinary tours of Asia. I love spice and curry. I love unique ingredients and unusual fruits. Taking food tours and cooking classes. It’s all part of the food adventure.
From hanging at a Hello Kitty themed restaurant in Taipei, to walking through the best foods to eat in Osaka. From how to eat dim sum to the best Cantonese restaurants in Hong Kong. And, how to search down spicy Szechuan food in Chengdu.
Southeast Asia Food Travel Guide
We spent about 4 years making Southeast Asia our home base while traveling. We lived in Bali and even created a home base in Bangkok for awhile. It all seemed very exotic, until it became our home, at least for a bit.
From the food markets of Vietnam, to spicy Bangkok food tours. From cooking classes in Malaysia to the best babi guling in Bali. From Hanoi street food to dining at one of the best restaurants in Asia.
Our Southeast Asia Food Travel Guide walks through all of our most interesting stories eating fabulous food across Southeast Asia. And, offers some great food tourism tips on food tours and cooking classes, in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Food & Travel in the US
We’ve been traveling the world looking for great food since 2012. But, we’ve also spent a bit of time exploring our own country, focusing on comfort food and craft beer. Here are some of our top American culinary travel posts:
Searching for the Best Gulf Coast Eats in Mississippi and Louisiana
Learning all about Boudin – what is boudin and where can you find it
Where to Eat in Athens Georgia – exploring a college town through food and craft beer
Where to find the Best Food in Charleston – From oysters to she crab soup
Going behind the scenes on the Tabasco Factory Tour
Our Food Travel Video Channel
I am no film school graduate, that’s for sure. But, over the last few years I’ve really enjoyed creating our food adventure videos. Whether it’s a video about wine makers, or how they make mortadella, or a food tour, it’s a lot of fun to capture peoples’ stories in this way.
I love writing about food, and I love taking tasty food photos, but videos are different. First, it kind of makes us feel more like food travel experts! But, it also just makes our foodie vacations and trips come alive.

Our Food Travel Podcast
We launched a food podcast to share more of our Adventures in Food, Wine & Luxury Travel. We think this is the perfect way for readers to get to know us better, as we talk in our own voice. We are also interviewing people who we meet along our travels, including fellow food travel bloggers, chefs, and wine makers. We hope you enjoy our culinary travel podcast!
