On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we’re happy to catch up with Jen Murphy, the wanderlust Deputy Editor of AFAR magazine. This globe trotting gal grew up on the shores of New Jersey, only to find herself jaunting to far flung beaches and beyond in over 40 countries on 5 continents. Recently, Jen’s been in Croatia, Slovenia, London, Colorado (Granby, Crawford, Durango), Verbier, Austin, Asheville, Charleston, Maine, Marrakech, Nambia, Mozambique, Cape Town … just to name a few, but what tips does she have to become a better adventurer. From travel etiquette to cultural practices, assimilating like a local, and asking a bartender where to eat, here’s how to make it about both the journey and the destination. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.
