“I just want you to have a great meal,” says Jeff Gordinier, former food and drinks editor for Esquire magazine. “I do the leg work. I eat out all the time. So please, pay attention.” When he’s not travelling America or the world (the prolific writer devoted four years to shadowing chef René Redzepi of Noma for his memoir, Hungry), Gordinier spends his time at home in a village north of New York City. From James Beard-nominated Chinese cooking to hearty, soulful Filipino cuisine, his recommendations make a compelling case for travellers to venture beyond The Big Apple.
