• The best hiking and eating trips in Europe In tribute to the Northern Hemisphere summer happening right now: my slow food and hiking guides to Europe, all in one place. I’ve said before, if I get 100 people to leave their comfort zone and get out of the city to move and eat real food in regional areas…well, I will die in peace more
  • A slow food and hiking guide to Hobart and Freycinet It’s become quite a thing…these slow food and hiking guides. I’m glad you like them. From my point of view, if I get 100 people to leave their comfort zone and get out of the city to move and eat real food in regional areas…well, I will die in peace knowing my job is done. more
  • Slow Food and Outdoors Guide to Perth and Fremantle I’ve just come back from a jaunt over West. It was a quick one, but I got a very good feel for the scene there in just a few days. My bro’ Ben and I scouted the joint together. Perth and environs has some incredible produce and wine that fits to the “whole food”, locavore more
  • A slow food and hiking guide to Mudgee, NSW This is a nice quick post, to be told mostly in pictures. I like to eat and hike, both mindfully. Both ground and enliven me. Thus, I devote a lot of my energies heading off to explore (often) far-flung places in the bush/country/wilds that are also peppered with surprising real and whole foodie finds. If more
  • My slow hike in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, UK Growing up in the 1970s on a desolate hill where ABC was the only TV station available, I was exposed to a lot of quaint British programming. The Good Life, Worzel Gummage, The Famous Five, To The Manor Born, All Creatures Great and Small…you get the drift. All of which were evoked in full rolling-hills-and-howling-hounds more
  • A slow food (and Paleo) guide to London I’ve done a few trips to London in the past few years and have witnessed the slow/mindful/locavore/sugar-free/whole/Paleo food scene really shift. It was interesting to arrive this time from the US (I was in both New York and London doing publicity for my books) and compare the difference in food tone. The UK is super more
  • My ski trip to Skoki Lodge Recently I experienced one of the best adventures of my life.  If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you might have noticed me in a silly looking beanie with a grin on my face set against a background of feathery whiteness. I’d flown to Calgary (you can read my post on this here) to more
  • Slow Food (and Paleo) Guide to Seattle Seattle is a slow and whole foodie playground. Let me illustrate just how so with this example: the other night at Sitka and Spruce, a Capital Hill restaurant featuring local produce, I had one of my gut aches. When I have a gut ache I generally take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in some more
  • Slow food and hiking guide to Sardinia #2 A few weeks back I posted a Slow Food and Hiking Guide to Sardinia part 1. Forthwith is the rest of it. Sing out if you need any other tips. I’m forthcoming, mostly. Sardinia is an intriguing place. You’ll like it. But, as I always advise, it’s always best to make your adventure your own. And more
  • Slow food and hiking guide to Sardinia #1 Thinking of heading to this large, personality-drenched Mediterranean island? Well here’s my rundown on the highlights from my marathon trip there. Marathon? I covered a helluva lot of what is a pretty big island, sampling the highlights, covering vast tracts by foot and bike…the rest in my little Fiat Panda…all in less than three weeks. more
