New User & Food Memory of the Month

April 16, 2012

Queso humacha, a traditional soup from La Paz, Bolivia

It’s April 16, which means: It’s National Eggs Benedict Day!* But also: We have a new User and Food Memory of the Month!

This time around we’ve selected Jessie as our User of the Month, and one glance at her profile illustrates why: The girl gets around! To date she’s contributed 21 food pics, from Guatemala to Sweden to Syria, always with detailed descriptions. Most recently she put Bolivia on the map for us, adding foods traditional to La Paz and Santa Cruz, including the colorful queso humacha shown above.

Our new Food Memory of the Month is “The Kindness of Strangers in the Seychelles,” by spiceboxtravels (who blogs about food and travel at Spiceboxtravels.com). It’s a story about a memorable meal in the archipelago nation made possible by some unasked-for assistance, reminding us of the many times we’ve experienced the generosity of perfect strangers while on the road—and how those moments tend to translate to the best travel experiences.

The winners will be featured on our Get Involved page for the next 30 days or so. Congratulations, and we hope to see more from both of you soon. As for the rest of you: Contribute today, and your praises might be sung next!
