About Us

The Family That Eats Together

One thing you can say about us is we love to do things together.  Whether it's hiking in the Cascades, watching a Disney movie, playing a board game or climbing into our Subaru Outback for a road trip we do it together, as a family.  That's what makes this adventure through "1000 Foods To Eat Before You Die" so much fun.  Trying new things, and seeing how all of us, old and young, react to the amazing foods from around the globe.

Why This Book?

Before there were kids Nicole bought Jason 1000 Places to See Before You Die in the USA & Canada, and the two took a lot of trips together.  We always thought it would be fun to share what we have learned with others, but never sat down and put anything together.  With kids came less traveling as well.

The food book presented a whole new world to explore, and one that could be done, for the most part, from our home.
