We've all got to eat. So what better way to connect with the world and cultures around us, than through food? Fellow foodie, and this week's Travel Crush, Adebola agrees as she transports us to far away places via her culinary exchanges.
Tell us about yourself! Who are you? Where are you from? What do you do? What inspires you to travel?
I am Adebola, a Travel Foodie from the UK who shares food and travel tips worldwide! I enjoy tasting different foods worldwide and then coming home and making the dish when I get back home through an IG live that I call #CookingTravelTalks!
Cooking Travel Talks is a Live via Instagram. During the one-hoursegment, we cook dishes from around the world and encourage others to join. The idea is to enable our audience to experience and learn about a destination in one hour!
I caught the travel bug when I did a study abroad in sunny Singapore– a modern city-state in the heart of Southeast Asia. Singapore was just a stone’s throw away from the most magical places: the coral islands of the Philippines, party beaches in Thailand and the quirky concrete jungles of Tokyo, and within an hour’s flight (or two), I was transported to another world.
What inspires me to travel is seeing more people that look like my travel and explore the world. I want to see more black women traveling and tasting the world through me and with me.
As a fellow foodie, what was the most adventurous dish you've ever tried?
I've tried quite a few adventurous dishes! From crocodiles in the Philippines to duck feet in Hong Kong! I think trying new dishes when traveling and understanding different flavors in food is essential to experiencing the country.
Are culinary excursions commonly on your travel to-do list? If so, why should people jump at the chance to add it to theirs?
Yes, culinary excursions are a must! I try and make sure that I do a cooking class and a foodie tour along my travels, and I would say it is certainly something people should add to their list so they can really embrace the foods of the local cuisines.
Food is also an excellent way to connect with people, and I think it's a good way to meet new people and engage and network with the locals.
Which culinary creation was the most challenging to recreate?
So I think the most challenging culinary creation I tried to recreate has been a Hawaiian dish! I made Spam Musubi on a Cooking Live recently and it was difficult. It could be because I purchased the wrong rice!
What was the destination were you most taken aback by their cultural dishes?
I love Asian food, so when I lived in Singapore, I travelled to over 15 countries in South East Asia and was taken aback by Malaysian and Cambodian food!
