What's the Mediterranean Comfort Food Tour All About?
Rich and I decided to set off on an open-ended, unstructured journey to sample some of the world's best comfort foods — I know, a tough job, but somebody has to do it! Each meal gives us fresh insight into the character of the local culture. We started on April 20 in Crete and are slowly working our way north through many quirky towns, remote islands, and terrific meals. We plan to travel until somewhere around August-ish. You'll find highlights, recipes, and videos in the stories below.
