Food and travel are, of course, essential to who we are.


A big (nay, huge) motivation for our travels is to give ourselves the opportunity to drink in nature's beauty while we hike. Hiking allows us to replenish our soul in the same way that food replenishes our body. Hiking through a forest, across a meadow, or up a mountainside are some of our favourite ways to truly savour life.


Here we'll share with you highlights of what we discover during our adventures; we hope you enjoy, and perhaps our musings will help you seek out and savour your next outdoor experience!

Ruck Pack

We have never tried this product, but have read amazing reviews and are eager to try it during the next hiking season.

From the official website: Originally founded by Marine Special Operations Forces in the battlefields of Afghanistan, RuckPack™ is combat nutrition designed to help you stay cool, alert, driven, and physically ready to ramp up when needed. Nootropics are ingredients that provide the brain with the fuel it needs to operate at maximum capacity. They not only boost cognitive functioning, but also support mind-muscle communication and promote agility in the face of fatigue. 

Adventure Companies

World Expeditions

When they say "world" they mean it. You can search adventure options by continent and country.  Expect prices to start at $1,000 and rise to as much as $10,000.

They cater to all tastes: Adventure, Culinary, Families, Arts and Photography,  Cruising and Sailing.  We have never used this company personally, but have run into their tour groups while  exploring Chile.

If you spend a lot of time out in the wild, being prepared to lend a help in case of an emergency is a great idea.   This is a list of organizations that provide Wilderness First Aid training.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
