Maya Stanton grew up in a family that structured vacations around where and when and what to eat, and proudly maintains that tradition to this day. A freelance writer, editor, and researcher, she and her million takeout menus — and cookbooks — live in a Brooklyn apartment that constantly has issues with water temperature. But luckily, no chickens. Yet. She hates Nicolas Cage, people who stand on the left-hand side on the escalator, and any soccer team that isn’t Arsenal.
Jill Moorhead’s first job was removing soggy breadsticks from the carpeted floors of an Olive Garden in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She’s been working in the food industry ever since. She spends her days marketing local foods at an independent market in Columbus, Ohio. An award-winning freelance writer, you can find her musings about food in Columbus Crave magazine. She’s terrified of freeway driving, getting stuck in historic restrooms, and public speaking.
We’ve had countless culinary adventures together — in person, via Skype, or by text message — since 2000, when we first met and decided, naturally, to go to Spain together. Itinerant Foodies was the logical extension of that friendship; here, we post about everything from dining triumphs to cooking disasters, both locally and on the road.
Recipes to share? Restaurants to recommend? Lavish praise to bestow upon us? We’d love to hear from you: itinerantfoodies AT gmail DOT com.
