Earth Eats: Real Food, Green Living

Around The World In 5 Food Blogs

Be transported to another culture by these bloggers' accounts of good food from around the globe.

Each week, Earth Eats shares a comprehensive list of links to food media outlets, including filmbooksphoto blogswebsitesvideos and podcasts.

This week’s installment of food media links brings you recipes and thoughtful travel guides from abroad. Learning about another culture through food will inspire some home cooking — and perhaps an upcoming vacation!


Kerrin Rousset is a food and travel writer with a massive sweet tooth. She has literally traveled the world – from Alaska to Zambia – and has lived in New York, Boston and France. She now calls Zürich, Switzerland home. Rather than personal recipes, Rousset shares the sweet recipes of master pastry chefs and chocolatiers through fun photography and informative cultural insight.

French Revolution

Kerry lives in New York and blogs about French-American fusion and comfort foods. Her recipes are simple, but they enlighten readers on what ingredients and cooking techniques make a meal uniquely French — from appetizer to dessert.

Souvlaki for the Soul

Born in Australia, Peter of Souvlaki for the Soul is a self-proclaimed glutton of Greek heritage, hence the reference to the popular Greek fast food in the title — grilled meat and vegetable skewers. His recipes may be focused on Greece, but his travels span just about every continent. Scroll through his beautiful photo diaries of Bali, New York, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore and New Zealand before cooking up some dolmades and feta fritters.

Parla Food

A Rome-based food journalist, educator and historian, Katie Parla provides readers a glimpse into life in Italy (and life in London, Istanbul and America, too). She highlights personal narratives of individuals who have dedicated themselves to producing and cooking good food. Check out her many useful city guides before your next vacation.

She Simmers

Leela Punyaratabandhu shares with readers her search for Thai ingredients she uses to recreate favorite recipes from her heritage. The ingredients may be found in the United States, but the many recipes are from traditional Thai home cooking. She not only simmers, but she steams, roasts, bakes, grills and muses her way through the kitchen.

Sarah Ostaszewski

Sarah Ostaszewski is a student of anthropology and fine arts at Indiana University. She dreams of fresh summer tomatoes from her family's garden, and she loves tasting unique ingredients, learning culinary histories, and tracing foods back to their roots.
