New Here? Besides recreating and sharing recipes of the delicious things I've tasted during my travels, I love to tell stories, especially those about the characters I meet along the way. Almost always, food plays an important roll in my stories. Below I've included links to some of the most popular posts and my personal favorites. These should give you an idea of the kind of stories you'll find here. I've also included the Getting Around section below to help you navigate your way around this site and find me elsewhere on the web.
If you like something or just want to join in the conversation, I read and appreciate every comment left on the site. And if you REALLY like a post, I'd love it if you share it with your friends. There are sharing buttons at the bottom of each post to make it convenient for you to spread the word.
Getting Around -
On this site, I've created a Recipe Archive, where you can find all the recipes I've posted here. There's also a Food & Travel Posts Archive where you'll find a list of all other posts, except for the Italy on a Plate series (which has it's own page). You can also read my bio and learn more on the About Me page. There is an RSS Feed or you can subscribe via email notifications and get updates when I post something new.
If any of my culinary or general travel tips are helpful, if you use and enjoy recipes on this site, or if you just want to help support Food Lover's Odyssey, donations via Pay Pal a re much appreciated.
Social networking is a huge part of both blogging and meeting fun and knowledgeable people in France & Italy. You can find me on almost every social networking site. On the Food Lover's Odyssey FACEBOOK page, I share all stuff I like (not only food-related) about Italy and France. There, I also post daily photos from my Italy & France photo collection of 15,000 photos. On TWITTER, I chat food & travel with my tweeps, share new blog posts, and add a few snippets from my daily life. I've joined the PINTEREST craze pinning photos of all things I like to look at. On STUMBLEUPON I bookmark a lot of food & travel favorites from all around the world. I'm still figuring out how to use GOOGLE+. And if you'd like to sift through my unorganized FLICKR sets (I'm working on making them more gawker friendly), you're welcome to visit me there, too.
