Jan. 20 Virtual Exploration: Gastronomic Inspiration With YouTuber Jonathan DeLise

Real Wasabi: Looking Beyond the Restaurants for Gastronomic Inspiration
Saturday, Jan. 20, 2024
@ 2:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) / 1900 UTC

Whether or not you’re a food-focused traveler, eating is one of those few activities that we all ultimately share. Yet what is published in English-language media often gives short shrift to the breadth of edible adventures that await. That’s why we invite you on a culinary journey, one that doesn’t so much ignore restaurants as it does inspire you to set those menus aside.

Jonathan DeLise is originally from the NYC area, though he’s also lived in various cities in East Asia, Saudi Arabia, and Mexico. Through his small YouTube channel @findingfoodfluency, he has covered a wide variety of foods and food culture. Language study is one of his hobbies, and a pivotal reason for this is to decipher menus. His dream title would be Fluent Eater.
