We’ve been bitten by the travel bug in recent years so we now long for a life of non-stop travel and adventure. And of course, lots and lots and lots of eating.

JB & Renée, Will Fly For Food

Interview with JB & Renée of Will Fly For Food

What should your visitors be expecting while researching your blog?

JB & Renée: Comprehensive travel information that’s well-presented and easy to digest. From where to eat, to what to do, to how much money to bring, my goal is to make each travel guide a one-stop resource for would-be travelers. Despite our shift to a more travel-centric food blog, people can still expect Renee’s delicious recipes because that’s always been the backbone of our blog. Food, after all, takes you places.

What is your definition of an ideal/perfect meal?

JB & Renée: Something made from the heart. You can tell if a dish was made with love because you can really taste it. It’s unquantifiable but essential.

Food from which Asian country do you like the most?

JB & Renée: That’s easy, Japan! I LOVE sushi so Japanese cuisine is easily my favorite, with Indian being a distant second. Renee isn’t as fond of Asian cuisine as I am but if she were to choose one, then it would be Japanese as well.

What advice would you give to other bloggers who just started their own food blog?

JB & Renée: Be authentic, be yourself. Don’t try to be someone else. People aren’t stupid. They’ll see right through it.

What do you wish to see more or less of the food blogging community?

JB & Renée: More honest blogging. I feel that some newer bloggers get into it for the promise of free meals. Whether they like to admit it or not, it influences how and what they write. As they say, there’s no such thing as a free meal.

What are your top 5 bucket list destinations?

JB: Cuba, Galapagos Islands, Madagascar, Bhutan, Peru

Renée: Egypt, Madagascar, Scotland, Bolivia, Cuba

What would your last meal be?

JB: Sushi! Either an omakase experience by a top Japanese chef or a kaiten-zushi meal. I love being able to grab whatever I want whenever I want.

Renée: Anything with foie gras and truffles
