I was interviewed for a podcast!
My life as a culinary nomad with a day job
I was recently interviewed for the Nomadic Foodist podcast. Chris and his wife travel around the world for food. I reached out to him because we had been to so many of the same places, from Peru to Colorado to Argentina, just to name a few. I was inviting him to get a bite together the next time we overlapped. I didn’t expect to be on the podcast!

About the episode
Chris is a great interviewer. The interview is like a free-flowing conversation between friends. We focused on food, travel, and Peru, but we touched on many other topics as well. The episode is one hour and seventeen minutes.
Here’s a partial list of topics we covered:
How I started traveling as a baby
The path to remote work
Why I write about Peruvian food
What dishes to start with if you’re new to Peruvian food
How to try cuy (guinea pig)
The Chicharrón sandwich
Chicha Morada (Peruvian corn punch)
Nikkei food-this was a big recurring theme in the episode
The quintessential Lima eating experience you should try
My favorite, favorite travel moment-meeting Mariela
As you can see, we had a lot to talk about. I feel like we easily could’ve talked for hours more about a completely different set of topics that we have in common.

I would highly recommend subscribing to the Nomadic Foodist Podcast.
Also, check out the guides on Nomadic Foodist. I read a ton of food lists before I travel somewhere new. I especially like the guides on Nomadic Foodist because of how accessible and practical they are. Chris is great at explaining dishes and ingredients that might be unfamiliar to listeners.
