The first FoodTrekking publication is about Cascadia, one of the best-regarded GeoCulinary regions in the world. This special area is brimming with incredible food and drink, but more importantly with amazing people with amazing stories. There is a beautiful and unique food culture hidden in this land, and we want to share this charm and splendor with the whole world. What better way to this goal than through an online publication? 

FoodTrekking in Cascadia will take all the wonderful stories and photos that make up this region and provide Cascadian food and beverage businesses and their owners, the global recognition they deserve. The publication will be a valuable source for both visitors and locals, with the power to reach all corners of the globe. We want to make Cascadia famous ... and for all the right reasons. 

Yelp and TripAdvisor can only get you so far. 

And aren't you tired of reading the same kind of lists of restaurant reviews and recipes? FoodTrekking in Cascadia goes far beyond these overused and boring formats. You can eat with your eyes, as you learn about the rich and delicious history of Cascadia, and the people who make its food culture one of the best in the world. Why not celebrate the best-kept secret in the food lover community? FoodTrekking in Cascadia will highlight our amazing community with the highest quality editorial content, beautiful photography and even compelling videos. These are stories you'll want to share with your friends and family, not something you'll click through once and be done. Get excited to see your new favorite culinary region be celebrated in a way like never before!

We said it before, but our publication truly is different. We only source material from the best up-and coming journalists and photographers because we want FoodTrekking in Cascadia to represent the best of the best. Do you have a story or a photograph you are dying to tell the world about? We can help. Our content is sourced through a competitive submission process, and we would love to see what you've got. Scroll down to send us your best photographs of the natural beauty and wonder of Cascadia, the stunning food and drink the region has to offer, or of the people that make this place great. Send us your stories about your favorite Cascadian person, or your favorite local business or farm. What makes them amazing? FoodTrekking in Cascadia is a place to share our passion and love for this special culture of food and drink. We especially welcome work from people from non-majority cultures.

A publication for the people and by the people.
