Hometown Foods showcases the best dishes and drinks around the world from travelers’ home towns. We define “home town” as either

  • your original home town, i.e. where you were born/raised; or
  • your adopted home town, current or past, where you (have) lived for an extended and consider(ed) it home.

We will group contributions by country or continent, with 5-10 contributions per post.

Please read the instructions below carefully, as we don’t have any capacity to babysit you. We’re all professionals here, so let’s get our poop in a group, and do this right. Herding cats ain’t our jam, is what we’re saying (we do love our metaphors, though).

We’ll follow up with you and work to publish your contribution as soon as possible, including 1-2 dofollow links to your website and 1-2 links to the social media profile/channel(s) of your choice. Your contribution will be published when we match it up with related contributions.
