Food Tourism is on the rise and there is an ever-growing interest in experiencing local food activities.  At Authentic Food Quest, our goal is to help people find the best local food experiences on their travels.

As a resource platform, we showcase the authentic dishes and drinks not to miss, the best cooking classes, food tours, local restaurants, travel-inspired recipes, and more. All this aimed at helping travelers have the best local food experiences.

We welcome partnerships with brands, travel companies, and tourism destinations that offer enriching local culinary experiences.


We are Rosemary and Claire, culinary explorers and digital nomads behind this website.

We created Authentic Food Quest in 2015, with the goal of helping people enjoy the best local food experiences on their travels.

By creating awareness about the local and regional specialties, we aim to inspire travelers to connect deeper through food.

A partnership with Authentic Food Quest is a fun and effective way to promote your brand or destination and the amazing local specialties, restaurants and more in your area.

We can produce high quality content centered around the culinary gems and local food experiences to a highly engaged audience of food lovers. Content includes written articles, social media promotions and video highlighting the local food experiences in your area.

In the last 5 years, we’ve traveled through local food in South America, Southeast Asia, Europe and North America. As digital nomads, we travel slow while living like locals. This approach helps us understand and bring to bear  the cultural context of the local food specialties.

Get in touch. Let’s collaborate together!


We want to partner with brands, companies and destinations who share our love for putting a spotlight on the local food experiences. We can help you promote the local specialties through some of the ways listed below.  Additionally, we are open to your ideas for how we could work together.

  • Press Trips
