Many avid travelers like to keep journals of their adventures, as well as ticket stubs, pictures, and other memorabilia. Melissa Kronenthal, the creator of the Traveler’s Lunchbox, has taken that idea to a new gastronomic level by chronicling and reminiscing about her past travels through food and recipes. With gorgeous, high-quality pictures and detailed articles that read almost like personal diary entries, Melissa recounts her experiences and travels in destinations ranging from her hometown of Seattle (corn and crab pudding for Christmas) to Lyons, France (poulet au vinaigre). Kronenthal has spent a lengthy amount of time in Edinburgh, Scotland, and the Traveler’s Lunchbox often takes on an international bent, making for a truly global reading experience. The Traveler’s Lunchbox also includes a lengthy “Blogs Around the World” listing, featuring the writer’s handpicked food blogs from all over the globe. For those of us who might not be able to go on our own culinary travel adventure, the Traveler’s Lunchbox is a great way to get a taste of that life.
