Six Things to Do and Places to See Before Climate Change Swamps the Party | Off the Road. The conversation of climate change and its possible effects on our world and our future often hinges on millimeters of sea level rise and half degrees of temperature increase—little enough, perhaps, to make it all sound irrelevant if you’re already a skeptic, or by no means an emergency, anyway. #travel #smithsonian

Great Food Festivals of the World | Off the Road. Where does a traveler go to best taste the foods and flavors of a region? Local restaurants? Not me. Because when a dish arrives at the table in a fine restaurant, it is more often the artful work of a chef, not the pure product of the land, and I don’t know about you, but I travel to experience a place, not its chefs. #travel #smithsonian

Best Vegetarian Foods of the World | Off the Road. “Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food.” #travel

Paul Theroux’s Quest to Define Hawaii | Travel | Smithsonian Magazine. Hawaii seems a robust archipelago, a paradise pinned like a bouquet to the middle of the Pacific, fragrant, sniffable and easy of access. But in 50 years of traveling the world, I have found the inner life of these islands to be difficult to penetrate, partly because this is not one place but many, but most of all because of the fragile and floral way in which it is structured. #travel

#Istanbul makes all the latest travel hot lists, for good reason. Domed mosques, topped with fairy-tale minarets, anchor scores of neighborhood squares where prayer calls echo down cobbled lanes.

From the Horn of Africa to the Arabian Peninsula, and onto Europe via Venice and Constantinople, the cult of coffee has been spreading for close to five centuries. Globally, we’ll knock back over half a trillion cups of the stuff in 2012; only that other energizing black liquid, oil, is more widely traded. But while the addiction might be international, the habits that have evolved around coffee’s consumption are as diverse as the ways it is served. #coffeetrade #travel #time

I focus on French food at beast, my restaurant in Portland, Ore., but I try to approach it with a slant.

36 Hours in Siena, Italy - In many ways Siena hasn’t changed much in 800 years. And that’s a good thing. The town’s gorgeous 13th-century main square, the Piazza del Campo, is still the city’s symbolic and physical heart. The twice-a-summer bareback horse race, Il Palio, is still the most anticipated event, and the contrade, or neighborhood associations, still inspire a loyalty as deep as they did in medieval times. #travel #Itlay
