Culinary travel has many wonderful benefits. You get to experience a place through its delicious food and drink, while the essence of its past, present, and future unfolds on your palate. There's no better way to learn about a people's history and culture than through the food that defines them.

Small but Mighty: Lunchbox Broccoli Mini Quiche

Scrambling for nut-free school lunch ideas? Try these super easy mini quiches!

by: Gav Martell

It's getting harder and harder to come up with inventive lunches the kids are willing to take on a regular basis. It seems since peanut butter fell off of the school lunch menu there are few options that my kids don't start to get sick of after a few days in a row. That means I've got to keep changing up the sandwiches I give them, or get inventive in the kitchen.

By day, Gav is VP at a software company. Otherwise he is busy cooking up a storm, exploring culinary travels, drinking craft beer, training for half-marathons, playing endless amounts of hockey, and being a dad to three awesome taste-testers — not necessarily in that order.


You can find Gav on his food blogGrill Interruptedwhere he takes a break from the busy to jot down some recipes. He is always on the lookout for new foods to experiment with and new ways to get the kids helping out behind the counter.
