Just like his wanderlusting, gluttonous parents, Raff is a food and travel nut who spends hours perusing cookbooks and his well thumbed atlas. But my junior travel bug doesn’t quite understand the economics involved in his plans to travel and eat his way through “everywhere in the whole world ever” are more suited to the Jolie-Pitt clan than ours (though of course, we’re far better looking). Struck one morning by the wise words of that great sage, Babar the Elephant*, who said “Part of the fun of sailing through life is tasting different ways to live”, we decided to encourage his desire to travel and eat the world.

Now, whether we’re on an international escapade, exploring Australia’s great multicultural backyard or in our own kitchen, we’re venturing on a gourmet safari for kids – serving up recipes, tips and family adventures with a hefty dose of humour – in an attempt to raise fearless foodies who embrace and respect all people.

*Since the births of my beloved offspring, the associated brain fade and lack of time that came with them, I’ve pretty much parted company with my old literary pals and now seek inspiration wherever I can get it. Regrettably that’s generally a soundbite from a superhero or talking animal… in fact, it’s only by sheer chance that I’m not writing a blog inspired by a Ninja Turtle.

    How fabulous!!! As the daughter of a travel agent who became a tour group leader (still working and taking her next group to South America next month), I totally resonate with your son and you. Will be following your work xx

    Fantastic way to share your love for food and travel with the little ones!!! I am much the same, quite a foodie and keen to try something new whenever something catches my attention! Unfortunately the little one is much of a fussy young toddler – takes a lot to convince her to ‘like’ something! Unfortunately – maccas fries tops the list for the moment! Looking forward to sharing and reading your adventures and ‘connecting’!

      Thanks Winnie. Our younger one can be a little fussier than her big bro but she’ll always copy him so we’re getting there. Love to have you following our little and big culinary adventures. 🙂

    Love your blog! that’s great how you’re introducing new foods / cultures to your little ones. We’re about to start weaning baby number 2 (we followed BLW the first time and will do it again). Hopefully we can get the second one to love different food as much as the first – he’s only 2.5 and loves Thai curry 🙂

      Thanks so much. Our two are curry fiends as well! The big one loves them hot and we’re building up to that with the little one slowly but steadily. She’s almost there. 🙂

    I love this idea for a blog (and I love that Babar quote!). Thanks for stopping by mine, too. 🙂

      April 2, 2013 at 7:00 am (11 years ago)

      Thanks Allison, Babar is one very wise old elephant! 🙂
