About

After a year of planning, Duncan Smith and Rob Grant have embarked on the culinary adventure of a lifetime. Riding their motorcycles to every country across the Americas, they’ll explore different regional cultures and cuisines, focusing on local street foods and their origins and heritage. This site is aimed to keep people in tune with their adventure and will provide recipes along the way.

Duncan is a professional photographer and a motorcycle enthusiast with a love for food and adventure. Having been raised on multiple continents and in an international family, he’s passionate about travel, meeting new people and learning about their cultures.

After 20 years of being tied down to his work, Duncan has made the leap to follow his dream and spend the next year or two traveling around Latin America, exploring the beauty, cultures and cuisines based around local street food.

ROB GRANT

Rob is a professional chef and world adventurer using his skills to achieve a life long dream. Rob has paired with celebrity chefs all over the United States, tutored under some of the best chefs in France and spent more than a year in Mexico. These culinary skills and educated palate combined with a love of life will serve help deliver a delicious and practical product to our readership.

A motorcycle enthusiast with a collection of classics (Honda, BMW, Ducati, Kawasaki), Rob has already traveled most of the US on long distance tours, experiencing the diverse culture that exists in our country. With his mastery of the Spanish language and culture from his time in Mexico, Rob with his wife Kitty will be expert guides to the reader of well known dishes and their history – and local street food found in off the beaten-path neighborhoods.

    Rob-
    Your “adventures” are starting to sound like some of my field days in the Philippines and Indonesia while conducting field work on volcanic lakes. I’m impressed that you found the energy at the end of the day to write about it! But, I’m so glad that you do. It always lifts my spirits. Your humor and dry wit are so very missed here.
    Take care of yourself. Keep that helmet on, sounds like it comes in handy on occasion :).

      Buenas dias Cami,

      Glad to see that you all are following us. Keep leaving comments and spread the word, we are starting to get global attention (some spam). The more attention we get the better chance we have of keeping the ball rolling.
      Miss you all,
