The Blog: EatingPlaces
Food is a wonderful gateway to exploring and understanding culture. Maybe you’ve never been to India or Mexico, but I’m sure you’ve tasted food from these places. Recipes from grandparents, national flavors, holiday treats – these all vary dramatically based on where your ancestors have lived, settled, and traveled.
I studied sociology and focused on cultural studies and media studies during college. Once I graduated and entered a non-academic work environment, I craved some way to continue pursuing these curiosities. Through EatingPlaces I combine two passions – food and culture – in a way that I hope is approachable, educational, and fun.
While it’s easy to get stuck in Boston visiting trendy eateries and attending blogging events (even though I love them and meeting fellow bloggers!), I hope to continue pursuing the original concept of EatingPlaces: to ‘eat’, and therefore better understand, places around the world.
I’m always looking to try new-to-me cuisines, attend cultural events, and explore new restaurants that truly care about regional food and culture. To see where I’ve been, click here. Let me know if there’s something/some place I should check out!
Founder, Writer, Photographer: Liz Looker
I started this blog to record my original recipes, restaurant reviews, and food travels. Since moving to Boston, I’ve become involved with food bloggers and events, which has been a great way to learn more about food, culture, and food culture!
I love: travel, healthy recipes, painting, art, being outside, yoga/dance/Zumba, chocolate, a clean kitchen, connecting with passionate people, cookbooks with pictures
Food I can’t get enough of: oysters, sushi, ice cream, grapefruit, pickled anything, chocolate, fresh green beans from my parents’ garden
