There are many ways to embrace the local culture when travelling. You can meet the people, explore different neighbourhoods, see the sights and more. Another is food - if you eat live how the locals live and experience a destination the same way they do you have to try the local food. Somebody who knows this all too well is Jodi Ettenberg of LegalNomads.com - that's why I'm looking forward to discussing the topic with her on the next Hostelworld Hangout which takes place later today at 12.15pm EST/4.15pm GMT.
I've been lucky enough to have met Jodi a number of times over the last few years so I'm really looking forward to discussing how she enjoys food in all the destinations she's visited (she's been to a lot of places). Another reason I'm looking forward to the hangout is because Jodi has actually written a book on the subject - The Food Traveller's Handbook, a book which, in Jodi's words, 'provides a compelling argument for using food as a primary focus in discovering the world'.
We'll be posting the link to the hangout live on our Facebook page just before the hangout takes place later afternoon and we'll be tweeting it too. Alternatively, you can visit our Google Plus page http://plus.google.com/+hostelworld
as we'll be and streaming it there also. Just watch out for this image:

So mark your calendar - March 20th at 12.15EST/4.15GMT for the third Hostelworld Hangout - experiencing food on your travels with Jodi Ettenberg of LegalNomads.com.
