It's a long weekend and we can't wait to celebrate. If you're like us, you like to make things memorable so every last detail is planned. But that doesn't mean we're willing to spend hours prepping (it's too hot, and summer is supposed to be laidback), so we plan on easy drinks that have a little extra flair.
Pack you bag because it's all systems go! It's the start of summer vacation so traveling pretty much any and everywhere is fair game. It can be tough narrowing down where to travel so we turned to a few of our friends for advice. This June we have Alana Kysar of Fix Feast Flair heading to New York City, Brian Samuels of A Thought For Food set on Chicago, and Lloyd & Yaya from Hand Luggage Only pining for Peru and Patagonia.
We're totally smitten with toast — top it with cinnamon sugar, pear compote, or avo, and we're there. But as of late we've been very much partial to this toast. Inspired by the toast we had over the weekend at the SHED Cafe in Healdsburg, we made our own version and we're sharing it with our friends over on LaurenConrad.
Here it is, friends: the unofficial first weekend of summer. And while lots of people are hitting the road, I’m more than alright to stay right here. When you live in a coastal city like Los Angeles, everyone heads to the beach and that’s exactly what I’ll be up to. We’re staycation-ing in Malibu and all we have on the agenda is long hikes, late mornings, oh and endless brunches that will most definitely involve these Tomatillo Bloody Mary Cocktails.
If there's a month when it's a good time to visit prettymuch anywhere, it's May. The desert isn't too hot, Europe has started to thaw, and Japan still has some of its cherry blossoms, which explains why this month's contributors have got their bags packed and tickets booked.
We know we’re supposed to be equal-opportunity travelers and all, but we’re totally partial to April. The snow starts thawing, the flowers blooming, and with it? The ability to travel near and far before the big holidays really starts.
This month we're looking forward to making the most of the last days of winter while embracing the start of Spring and our fellow food-travel friends are doing the same with travels taking them from a St Pat's celebration in Chicago to the cliffs of Amalfi and the beaches of Hawaii.
If you ask us, the Aussies are owning it right now. True, it's summer there, which means it's easy to get green with envy as we stare down snow banks and they kick it beachside. But, we're crushing on them and it's about way more than their weather.
February is the month of love and it's clear that applies to travel too. This month includes wintering in Whistler, tasting the asado of Uruguay, hunting in the Blue Ridges, and dreaming of visiting South India.
They say that love is the universal language and while we’d like to think that flying sparks do not get lost in translation, we’re giving the idea a run for its money. If you ask us, there’s another universal language and it’s got us very much in love. We’re talking Instagram, obviously.
We love that love can be a bit dramatic, and, like a good dessert, a bit spicy, sometimes salty, and very sweet. So, we embraced that and made the theme of the February giveaway spicy & sweet. We've rounded some of our favorite sweet and spicy treats and we'll be giving away one collection (worth almost $500). Click through to see what's included and how to enter!
Food and travel are two of the greatest loves in life, which is pretty fitting considering that my day job is owning an independent travel bookstore. Not that I need an excuse to get on the road, but this year I've made a food travel reading list to give me even more motivation.
With the bubbles bubbled and the streamers streamed, it's goodbye 2014 and hello 2015 (so weird to write that!). We're planners if anything so we're already talking where to go and what to eat in the year ahead.
Thanksgiving is a holiday so nice, I say we should celebrate it twice -- once with friends and once with family. This year we're kicking it off with a Friendsgiving with some of my favorite food friends here online and we're sharing some recipes for Thursday's feast.
Hello! Welcome to Salt & Wind, a new site dedicated to all things food travel. We’re taking our love for food and mixing it up with our passion for travel — all with the goal of creating an inspiring resource that encourages you to taste the world!
Imagine if your life had a soundtrack -- a musical score that would play as the day unfolded. One that would musically reflect where you were at any given moment and mirror the mood of the time, weather, and the company you were keeping. This week I'm exploring Basque Country and this is what I'm listening to.
