Hello. I’m Lee. Welcome to my Culinary Travel Blog.

Come Along With Me as I Travel and Taste the World

Lee Blackwood

Through compelling stories, beautiful photography, and my distinctive (and often unusual) opportunities, I try to create a captivating story about every place I go. This website is a culinary travel blog and  resource, one that focuses on luxurious and authentic travel, as well as cultural food experiences around the world. As a professional fine dining chef, writer, author and lecturer (known to some as “the Tasteful Traveler”), I can take you behind the kitchen door: I try to seek out unique, custom and authentic food experiences where ever I travel, in order to learn about a local culture.

More than just another travel blog, EatTravelCook focuses on exploring – and understanding – destinations through food culture and from the people who create and live it. The purpose of ETC is to inspire you not just to travel, but to go beyond the typical tourist boundaries, to discover, experience and learn about authentic places and people – through food — the best way I know how — through tasting, eating, cooking.

So come with me, and TASTE THE WORLD!
