This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all who participated!

The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen cookbook giveaway

Today’s giveaway is a fantastic cookbook, but it’s much more than that: It is history, rich storytelling, a love letter to the South, an education in Lowcountry foodways, and an entertaining read even for those who aren’t in the mood to cook! Introducing The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen, the most recent cookbook by James Beard Award-winning authors, hometown heroes, and siblings Matt Lee and Ted Lee.

Frogmore stew in honor of Eat Your World's Charleston Food Week

Charleston is a real pleasure to eat in. It’s a pleasure for the other senses, too—the gorgeous 200-year-old homes; the long, flat, ideal-for-strolling coastlines; the salty, swampy breezes—but food is a definite draw down here, and...

One look at the images in our Taiwan section, and it’s no surprise the island is such a beloved food destination.

Book Giveaway! “Smart Chefs Stay Slim,” by Allison Adato Laura Siciliano-Rosen January 18, 2013

There’s a reason why our Destination sections include detailed info about both What to Eat and How to Burn It Off: For all the fried chicken and rich curries and regional hot dogs we feature on these pages as EYW founders, Scott and I are generally healthy eaters and regular exercisers who’ve learned to indulge in moderation. Turns out we might have taken a cue from a renowned chef or two, as nobody knows the good food–good health balancing act quite as intimately as one who cooks and eats and tastes for a living—and still manages to keep fit. Such is the topic of a new book by journalist Allison Adato, Smart Chefs Stay Slim.

Allison interviewed more than three dozen top chefs for...

Amazon Giveaway Winners Announced! Laura Siciliano-Rosen January 17, 2013

Taquitos from Southern California
Taquitos from San Juan Capistrano, CA

In response to our recent newsletter-announced giveaway, we have had lots of great user uploads lately—spanning regional foods from New Zealand and San Francisco, The Gambia and Cambodia (fried spiders, anyone?)—but could choose only two to be our winners. Our methods were decidedly unscientific and old-school: written on paper, thrown into a hat, and chosen at random.

Congratulations to users Jessie and Liaht, whose uploads from SoCal (Jessie’s, at top) and Paris (Liaht’s, below) were the two lucky submissions drawn! They’ll each win a $25 gift card to, which we’ll email over later today.

Be the first to hear about similar...

Pizza contest winners! Laura Siciliano-Rosen November 3, 2012

We asked for regional-pizza photos, and we got them, from Italy and Connecticut to Turkey and Vietnam. But we can choose only three winners, so it’s with great pleasure that we announce the following:

Pizza rossa

Pizza rosso, a tomato pie, from Rome, Italy

How good does this look? It’s fresh pizza rossa from Rome, and it sounds as good as it looks, thanks to pizzaquixote’s apt description.

Vietnamese pizza

Vietnamese pizza from Ho Chi Minh City

Now this you don’t see every day. But pizza it is, and we’re grateful to ja3ja3 for alerting us to this sweet, spicy, and tangy creation in Ho Chi Minh City. We want some!

Pizza margherita, Roman style

Roman-style margherita pizza, from Rome, Italy

Our third winning entry comes from Rome too, just one of three great, descriptive pizza entries...

South America Contest Winner Laura Siciliano-Rosen August 6, 2012

We asked for some inspiration from South America, and, with entries from Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, and Brazil, we definitely got it.

Mondongo, a traditional tripe soup from Colombia

But we had to choose one winner, and kept going back to a beautiful bowl of soup. Our winning entry comes from pauletteh86, who uploaded this gorgeous photo of mondongo, a traditional Colombian soup that includes pork, chorizo, tripe, potatoes, cilantro, avocado, and cumin. She also uploaded a Food Memory that elaborated on this dish—not a requirement of the contest, but we loved reading about her own personal relationship (or “affair,” as she calls it) with mondongo.

Felicidades, Paulette! She wins a copy of Lonely Planet’s inspirational...

Canalazo from Bogota, Colombia

Our friends at Lonely Planet are always working to inspire travelers, and they’re usually quite successful. And so it is with LP’s beautiful 1,000 Ultimate Experiences book, a hefty 700 pages of 1,000 globe-spanning travel ideas, activities, and images that will have you adding to—and revising, and adding to again—your lifetime travel bucket list.

Africa contest winner! Laura Siciliano-Rosen May 16, 2012

We just announced our new contest winner and want to give the Food Memory we selected some airtime on the EYW Blog, too.

User alexfhalpern wrote the winning entry, entitled “We Came to Eat Fish.” Why do we love this story? As we noted on the Contests page, it’s a well-written tale of a basic grilled fish dish enjoyed on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya, but like elsewhere in Africa, it’s not just about the food: It’s about the energy of the setting, the sheer “life force” of the lake, humming with those who depend on it for survival and play. It’s about the pride of the Kenyans who brought the author there, four hours out of the way, to feast on fish. It’s about food’s...

New Contest! We Want More African Food. Laura Siciliano-Rosen April 4, 2012

Binch or beans and yams in Sierra Leone, Africa

Yesterday we arrived home in New York City after three extraordinary weeks traveling around West Africa. (We apologize for the spotty on-the-road updates here: Wifi was not easy to come by for most of the trip.) We have loads of written and visual content to organize and post on EYW, including two full local-food sections for Senegal and Sierra Leone (pictured above is delicious binch (black-eyed beans) and yams from a streetside vendor in Bo, Sierra Leone). But our very first order of business is launching a new contest courtesy of AFAR, our favorite travel magazine (now available on both iPhone and Android) for its focus on real-deal experiential travel.

While we explored the...
