As Food + Travel content creators based in Lisbon, we travel the world in search of the next great meal. We eat it all from street food to haute cuisine and everything in between.
Since starting the award-winning 2foodtrippers site in 2012, we’ve collaborated with numerous partners including tourism boards, hotels, restaurants and major online travel brands. You can see many of our wonderful partners below.
We’re currently traveling vicariously by crafting global cocktails, eating out at Neapolitan-style pizzerias and teaching ourselves to cook Asian dishes at home.
Prior to 2016, 2foodtrippers was a hobby.
Daryl was an accomplished musician and worked for a high-end, celebrity chef-driven restaurant group based in Philadelphia. When he wasn’t performing at local clubs and weddings, he handled many of the restaurant group’s logistics. He also assisted with restaurant openings and special projects like the Food Network’s Iron Chef tv show. Though he’s not a chef, he occasionally wielded a knife or two on the job as well.
Meanwhile, Mindi earned an MBA and various professional designations while living in Atlanta, San Francisco, New York City, Denver and finally Philadelphia. She worked as an executive in the insurance industry and developed keen business skills including project management, contract review and managing others. This career gave her the opportunity to develop and hone keen writing and presentation skills.
Together, we worked on the 2foodtrippers site in our spare time and took short trips to destinations like France, Japan and Italy. We wrote about the food and travel experiences that we loved with minimal understanding of SEO or social media. But we wanted to do more.
Everything changed in 2016.
With a giant leap of faith, we left our careers and Philadelphia home to hit the road on an ongoing quest for the world’s best food and culinary experiences. This leap has enabled us to transition the 2foodtrippers site into a viable business and provide actionable resources for like-minded people who love food travel.
In 2018, we won two prestigious awards – Saveur Magazine’s editor’s prize for Best Travel Blog and TBC Asia’s gold prize for Best Food Blog. The following year, we exchanged the nomadic life for our current Lisbon home base. As it turns out, three years on the road was our limit.
Now we travel slowly and create comprehensive Food Travel Guides to help travelers find the best food, coffee, wine and beer in cities around the world. We’re constantly learning about food, travel and the business of blogging. Many would say that we’re living our dream and we don’t disagree.
How We Met
We met in 2006 at an Oscars party hosted by mutual friends in Philadelphia. It was a very successful party for both of us – Mindi won the Oscars pool and we both found true love.
It wasn’t long until we realized our mutual obsession for food and travel. We got married in 2007 and haven’t looked back since.
