I Traded My Traditional Thanksgiving for a Thailand FantasyPeople
What’s better than a table groaning under turkey and all the fixings, a swarm of family members, and leaving the dishes for later while you hit the early Black Friday sales? For me, it turns out, it’s a day in steamy, delicious cacophony on the other side of the globe. In 2008, my husband and I started a tradition of traveling to points further and further from home over Thanksgiving.

I Only Ever Stay in Hostels. Here’s Why.People
I remember the first time I ever booked a hostel room. My dad nonchalantly informed me that he was not, in fact, Liam Neeson — ergo, he would not be taking names through Europe to find me when I got kidnapped. Fair enough, I thought. My dad’s c’est la vie attitude towards my inevitable disappearance aside, the exchange shows us that hostels sometimes get a bad rap. But for me, they’re the only places I stay when I travel.

I Got on a Plane for a Cocktail & It Changed My LifePeople
It was midweek when I found myself staring outside the plexiglass window of my landing plane, worrying my lip as the typical Dublin rain blurred the lights of the airport. What am I doing? I asked myself as the “unbuckle seat belts” sign dinged overhead. This is not what a rational, put-together adult would do, I lectured as I wrestled my carry-on out of the overhead bin.

I Went on a River Cruise & This Is How It WentPeople
I’ve always had old-soul predilections. As a kid, instead of frolicking in the park, I preferred watching The Lawrence Welk Show and Murder, She Wrote with my grandparents. As a teenager, I hummed Perry Como songs as frequently as those from Pearl Jam’s Ten. I sought out Shredded Wheat, not Cocoa Puffs, for breakfast.

Mexico City Is the Most Unsung Food VacationPeople
For most of U.S. history, Paris reigned as the food-vacation Mecca. To get your gourmet cred, to validate your thoughts on bread and fine dining, you had to have spent time at the bistros of Saint Germain and wandered the alleys of the Marais. But it’s high time to put that myth to rest, chuck the Euro-centric view of food, and realize that the best food vacation destination is closer and cheaper than France. I’m talking about Mexico City.

I Love Food, Wine & Portland, Maine (I’m Even Getting Married There)People
Conversations with friends, family, colleagues, and strangers have followed a pretty tight script for the past two years that my fiancé, Joe, and I have been engaged. It usually starts with: “You’re engaged! Congrats! When is the wedding?” Once that’s out of the way, it’s: “Where are you planning to have it?” When we say Portland, Maine, like clockwork, we get: “Oh … why Maine?

How Louisville Turned a New Yorker into a Top ChefPeople
When the now-familiar Ed Lee — telegenic presence on several cooking shows (Top Chef season 9, Mind of a Chef) and perennial James Beard Award nominee — landed in Louisville in 2003, he was searching for life outside his native New York and a sense of post-traumatic meaning. “After 9/11, I had to get out of the city and clear my head. I sold my restaurant and started traveling around the country, discovering what America meant to me.

See Miami Through the Eyes of Award-Winning Chef Michelle BernsteinPeople
When you think of Miami, what do you think of? A place to catch some rays with a frosty beverage in your hand and miles of sandy beaches at your feet? A place where salsa dance beats and international flavors create a tangible energy and sizzling nightlife scene? This is the Miami you see in the movies and hear about in songs. This is the Miami that everyone knows. But Miami is so much more than this — especially when it comes to food.

A Love Letter to New Orleans from the Owner of Its Most Famous EateryPeople
You can’t talk about New Orleans and food and not talk about the Brennan family. Someone by the last name of Brennan runs some of the city’s most recognizable and renowned restaurants in town, including Brennan’s and Commander’s Palace, but also at least a dozen more. They are responsible for the invention of Bananas Foster!

A Love Letter to Oakland, CaliforniaPeople
I remember when I knew for sure that Oakland was going to be the right home for me: About five years ago, I was in the process of moving out of a temporary sublet in Berkeley and into a tiny new apartment in North Oakland. A friend of a friend was helping me to move, volunteering the spacious back of his old, listing, tied-together-with-a-bungee-cord biodiesel Mercedes Benz station wagon.
