All of this is what I miss most about China. Hands down. The food. The glorious diversity of Chinese food, and how it’s nothing like what we call Chinese food in so much of the West.
I suppose this past year living in Jinan, China (and traveling all around the country) is where my passion for food as a huge part of travel began.

More of my Chinese food experience, and beyond
- An article I wrote for Fresh Cup magazine about China’s developing coffee culture.
- After China, I took a round-about path to moving to Italy – and learned how much different Italian food culture is from what I’d expected.
- I also wrote about coffee culture in Costa Rica.
- And then kept going on the coffee theme and covered the first Starbucks that opened in Milan, Italy.
