Andrew and Karen Strikis, author of the Hobart, Tasmania, guide:
 
Calling Hobart home for more than 10 years, Andrew and Karen are two traveling foodies who love to get off the tourist trail, seeking out authentic, local dishes that make their taste buds sing. Join them at Fork + Foot as they continue their never-ending quest for the world's best street food!
 
Ideal day in Hobart: If it's a Sunday, start your day at the Farm Gate Market and snack on grilled octopus (with a shot of ouzo if you're keen!), wallaby tacos, and homemade sourdough doughnuts. Feeling active? Get yourself up to The Springs and hike to Sphinx Rock—the views are amazing! Or, for a more sedate afternoon, meander your way from the historic Salamanca waterfront over to Sandy Bay and Short Beach, where you can chill out and watch the local dogs tumbling by the waterfront. The eclectic, and slightly disturbing, MONA museum at Berriedale is sure to get you talking, before taking the ferry back to the docks and a sunset dinner floating on the water at Aløft. Bliss...



Michael Evans, author of the Beijing guide:

Based in China for the better part of a decade, Michael believes the best meals are those that are either the beginning or the end of a great story. A die-hard carnivore, he still has a soft spot for Buddhist temple fare. In his travels across Asia, he shamelessly seeks out the weirdest foods he can find to gross out the folks back home. That being said, he still hasn’t worked up the courage to try balut…
 
You can follow Michael on Instagram to check out his latest culinary and other adventures.
 
Ideal day in Beijing: Start off by wolfing down a freshly grilled jianbing at the breakfast stand down the street, then beat the crowds with a morning trip to check out the latest art installation at 798. For lunch, head to Li Ji for chuanr and shaobing, then hop over to Houhai for a stroll (or maybe a quick swim). Cool off with the locals with an Arctic Ocean orange soda or a creamy binggun Popsicle, then join the expat crowd for a microbrew in the courtyard bar at Great Leap. Hop on a Mobike to cycle home, with a quick detour to enjoy the lit-up buildings along Chang’an Avenue.

 

Lauren Sloss, author of the San Francisco guide:

A Bay Area native and a San Francisco resident, with a tendency toward prolonged stints in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Istanbul, Lauren Sloss writes about food, music, and adventures, and indulges in all three as often as possible. Say hey and follow Lauren @laurensloss

Ideal day in San Francisco: Start with an almond latte and toast at The Mill. Bike out to the ocean; bike back to the Mission for a Dolores Park hang, including burritos and beers. Cruise to the Ferry Building for oysters and bubbly on the Bay. Meet friends for cocktails, followed by an amazing dinner with wine, and a dance party to work it all off. Photo-booth photo shoots ensue. Repeat!

 

Mona Polo, author of the Cebu and Manila guides:

Mona Polo is a Manila girl to the core, though she is currently based in Cebu tending to the sailing apparel line Blood Red. In Philippine lore, a mole on the sole of the foot is a sign of wanderlust—she has two moles under her left foot. She has produced documentaries, travel videos, a magazine, and off-the-wall events before settling in as a writer for hire. She takes photographs when coerced encouraged.

Ideal day in Cebu: Go to a deli (Tinderbox) or supermarket (Rustan’s Fresh) for cooler supplies: fruit juice, beer, water, and ice, plus freshly baked bread, cheese, carrots, cucumbers, and ham. Stop for some roadside lechon manok, puso, fresh mangoes, watermelons, and other fruits in season. Get to a pier, hire a banca (an outrigger pumpboat), and go island-hopping: Hit Pandanon Island, Sulpa, Hilutungan. Swim. Eat. Snorkel. Eat. Lounge. Eat. Sunbathe. Repeat til sundown.

Ideal day in Manila: Meet friends for brunch at Café Adriatico, and linger over coffee and suman. Escape the heat and pollution by hitting The Metropolitan Museum for ancient Filipino gold or The National Museum for the jaw-dropping Spolarium and Philippine artifacts. Spot vendors hawking buko, kwek-kwek, camote cue, etc. while crossing through Rizal Park (Luneta) for pancit canton at Amber’s. Or, head over to Intramuros for a bambike ecotour and stop at The Manila Collectible for hand-crafted souvenirs, local munchies, and liquor for pasalubong. Rush to the Bayleaf Hotel’s Sky Deck for a sundowner to toast the famed Manila Bay sunset. Order dinner from the Heritage page, and save room for leche flan and halo-halo.

 


How to contribute


For the EYW Blog: Eat Your World is looking for a few hungry food/travel writers to work with.

Our guest blog entries fall into two categories:
—unpaid guest posts from other bloggers in which previously published content is repurposed to suit Eat Your World (works particularly well for our Recipes column; see below)
—paid, original articles stemming from a successful pitch ($25-$40, depending on length and scope)

Anything with a local-food angle is fair game, though we do have a few regular columns in place:

Trips (food-related stories, i.e., a quest for a local dish or a narrative about tracking down a slew of local foods), Roundups (Top 5/10 Local Eats in TK City, like this), Recipes From Afar (recipes of foods encountered while traveling, with backstory), Q&As (short interviews with local food producers around the world, like these), Origins (explorations of where certain foods come from), Dish Spotlights (short tributes to one particularly quintessential dish from a destination)

Pitches can be sent to [email protected]. Please note whether you have original photos as well.


For EYW destination guides: Do you live in a city you don't see covered on EYW, and know the food scene in and out? Are you a writer who fancies yourself a good photographer too? Pitch us a new destination guide: well-researched entries for What to Eat, How to Burn It Off, Where to Stay, plus an introduction and high-quality photos. This is a paid gig ($300-$500), based on how many food entries are to be completed. Please contact [email protected] to introduce yourself, your city, and your work if you’re interested.


As always, we encourage you to get involved by uploading your own regional-food photos and writing your favorite food-related memories. If you impress us with your own coverage, we may hire you to help with ours!
