In September of 2008 I began my mission: a Personal Food Project in Blog Form: Man Bites World. Unemployed and running out of money, my mission was to try to eat and write about a different country’s cuisine every single day—in a row—until I ran out of money or countries. The blog began with Day 1: Mexico and took off from there, with each day bringing its own unique adventures, sights and flavors into the fray.
The result of the blog was a 102 consecutive, exhausting, exhilarating and delicious days that changed the way I viewed food, my city, and ultimately, my life. So check out the archives section for a list of every country, the press section for news articles, radio appearances, TV appearances and blog shout-outs, and the postmortem to see how the whole thing wrapped up in the end. Also, take a look at some of my personal favorite days, like Ghana, Japan, South Korea, Peru and Bahrain.
Thanks everybody— and enjoy!
