Lonely Planet looking for amazing food stories for new anthology...

Ask any travel writer about their favorite travel memories and you can just about guarantee that food will be involved.

In fact, according to Lonely Planet author and editor Don George, ‘every traveller has some unforgettable food story – a larger-than-life feast, a mind-bending immersion in a rural market, the homemade, heart-opening treat shared by a stranger on a claptrap train, an adventure on the trail of an edible exotic. In all these tales, food is an agent of transformation, taking travellers to a deeper and more lasting understanding of and connection with a people, a place and a culture. And if they’re really lucky, it tastes good too!’

With that in mind, Lonely Planet is looking for submissions for the upcoming anthology, A Moveable Feast: Life-Changing Food Encounters Around the World.

All you need is a (true) tale of travel and food. He's looking for original, unpublished pieces of exceptionally high literary quality.

Length is from 1,000 to 3,000 words. Deadline is April 19.

If you have a great food story to tell, email it to Don at with Food Anthology in the subject line. All submissions are on speculation.

A Moveable Feast will be published this fall.
