The Travelling Table Euro Trip
This isn’t my first culinary adventure.
During the summer of 2015, I set off on a culinary road trip across America with my writing partner at the time, where I interviewed food professionals from pit masters, chefs, and restauranteurs to bee keepers, sea urchin divers, and butchers. I spent three months in my tiny 2007 Mazda 3 to discover the food landscape of the United States and how it intrinsically intercepted with American culture.
Now, after the success of my first culinary adventure, I am head across Europe to see what the food scenes there have to offer. We will be on route for an entire year, traveling first to France, then Spain, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Croatia to delve into the culture of food, family and history in each region.
Why follow The Travelling Table?
I will be posting about my trip as we travel across Europe, providing photo essays, restaurants reviews, authentic recipes, local haunts and interviews with various people in the food industry. I will also be filming episodes over on my Youtube channel!
Born in raised in Victoria, British Columbia, Gabrielle is the matriarch of a tight knit group of friends, and the creator of the popular food blog, The Laughing Table. A published author and obsessive hair twirler, Gabrielle devours novels almost as quickly as recipe books. She sets aside every summer to travel the world, has lived in both Quebec City and Paris, France, and, consequently, speaks French (almost) like a native. If she isn’t coaching her youth soccer and basketball teams or hosting a dinner party for her friends Gabrielle is hiding from them, indulging in marathon TV runs and compulsive creative writing.
Michelle has called many places home, from the rural town of Kojokrum, Ghana, the warm beaches of Cairns, Australia or the beautiful Victoria, British Coumbia in Canada. It is no surprise that as a recent psychology graduate, she loves to travel, learning about new cultures and meeting new people. She is excited to film and photograph the many wonderful adventures she and Gabrielle will have throughout their European adventure.
