International Street Food Festival
Finding fabulous new foods has to be one of the great joys of traveling.
And often street food is the best local food you can find – cheap, fresh and cooked right in front of your eyes.
Street food is … a roar of gas, a handful of this and a teaspoon of that, the scrape of a spatula against metal, some tossing, lifting and turning and maybe a shake of something on top — voila! — a taste sensation … made even more exciting by the bustle and noise of the street behind you.
What the world cooks up on tiny street food stands is simply astounding.
To celebrate amazing street food from around the globe, I invited some of my favourite bloggers to the world’s first online international street food festival – right here on The Dropout Diaries.
The festival, which starts Monday March 12, will be a week of street food heaven – dishes from Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and north America.
I guarantee the fabulous photos and wonderful descriptions of street food from around the world will make you hungry, will make you drool into your keyboard and will leave you with an insatiable desire to check the cost of flights to some far-flung corner of the world.
You’ll also meet some of the most amazing and good looking travel bloggers in the blogosphere. (You’ll be able to tell they’re amazing from their writing. To gauge their actual hotness, you’ll have to skip on over to their blogs to check them out. It’s not actually stalking. Promise.)
During the course of next week you will see … meat in a dessert, tea leaves in a salad, an Asian take on a cheesey greasy Quebec wonder and food that’s traveled far far from home.
