About The Eaten Path
Um, that’s a strange question for you to be asking right off the bat, but the answer is yes — by following James. While you’re at it, keep up with us on Facebook!
What is this blog about?
The Eaten Path delivers the story of a meal. Sometimes it is about the meal. Sometimes it is about the journey to get to the meal.
Who’s behind this?
The Eaten Path was founded in 2008 by James Boo. In 2009, Zachary Mann joined as co-writer and contributing editor to the blog. Over the years, we’ve hosted a handful of like-minded authors to contribute food and travel stories from all over the globe.
What foods does this blog cover?
Sometimes we cover sit-down restaurants and fine dining establishments, but we’re typically drawn to the meal that doesn’t have its own PR consultant or board of investors. Soft spots for holes in the wall, regulars, meals from wheels, and tastes of another walk of life.
That said, we don’t read the Zagat Survey and don’t try to break “food news.” With so many qualified reporters and reviewers already writing about food on the internet, we prefer to take a step back and write through the lens of narrative whenever possible. This blog is our devotion to food, travel, writing, and the world at large.
We do not write about free meals and avoid one-off reviews as much as possible. We are independent food writers, not professional food critics. We observe this distinction and encourage a healthy dose of context and skepticism when reading any food blog.
Do you mind if I use your photographs in my article?
We reserve all rights under copyright law to the photographs we’ve taken for this blog. Whenever any of our writers includes a photo that he or she didn’t take in a post, that photo is attributed and linked to the image’s original page. We require the same courtesy from you for any non-commercial use-and-attribution of images on this site.
If you have any further questions on using our photos, be it for a food review, travel guide, mobile app or anything else, please e-mail James about it.
