My husband and I share a passion for food, wine, and wandering through the city in pursuit of delicious things to eat and drink. I started this blog when we returned to our home of Washington DC after a 15 year absence to find a very different city undergoing an explosion of urban renewal. We had a great time visiting the culturally diverse areas of DC and sampling the local restaurants.
In 2016, we started another new chapter in life and moved to Valencia, Spain to experience the food and culture of the Mediterranean lifestyle. As Americans, we were in for some big changes and are very excited to share our journey eating our way through Valencia and the surrounding area. The markets of Spain are full of beautiful fresh produce, meat, and seafood that we just had to bring home and learn to cook for ourselves. And so, along the way we share recipes inspired by the Spanish markets.
So why food crawls? Whether we are exploring our home town or traveling to a new city, food crawling is our favorite way to experience the local culture. We like to get beyond the tourist areas and go to the neighborhoods, seeking out restaurants that make food for people, not critics. After all, food is more than just something to eat. It is a reflection of the people who grow it, cook it, eat it, and share it.
I hope you’ll enjoy following along with us on these food crawls and maybe even use them as inspiration to plan your own.
