The Story of Icelandic Lamb

And not only the where, but also who is producing the food and are they pouring their heart and soul into that production. I have traveled from Kansas to Belize learning about farmers and food production and recently returned from Iceland. I spent a few days learning about meat, fish,…

But, I always take it a step further and do my own investigation. I check out Instagram and message locals I find and know.

La Provence: A Taste of France in Beaverton Oregon

I am one of those restaurant goers who likes to find something different, out of the way, not the usual fare. In order to find these “pearls” when traveling, I rely on various sources; locals who are willing to share their favorite eateries, hotel concierges, newspapers, internet (of course), and family members.
