- To bring my readers inspiring, entertaining and educational articles about interesting places,
- To describe my experiences in those places and with the people there,
- To present photographs that help readers experience the places and people for themselves,
- To research the places I visit and bring readers pertinent history, anecdotes and related language tidbits,
- To distribute authentic, traditional family recipes from other regions and cultures, along with the stories of how I came to acquire the recipes,
- To provide step-by-step photos and instructions so that readers can recreate the recipes in their own kitchens.
