Maralyn D. Hill
Maralyn Dennis Hill, The Epicurean Explorer, was born to travel and tell the tale. From local cuisine to Michelin Star, simple to gourmet, Maralyn enjoys it all. Discovering flavors, spices, and trends worldwide, from Bocuse d’Or to being a judge at the Turks & Caicos Conch Festival, Oregon Chocolate Festival and others, or interviewing chefs, she is intrigued by all aspects of spa and culinary tourism. As a professional food, wine and travel writer, through guest spots on monthly radio shows, to being editor and contributor to over eight publications, print and online, she reaches several million on a continual basis, domestically and internationally. Maralyn’s years of writing incentive programs and meeting planning expanded her talent for digging below the surface for the unusual. She thrives on discovering different cultures and customs and feels it’s the best geography lesson ever. Also, she derives great satisfaction applying her organizational development skills. She has co-authored three books and hosted a television show for Time Warner Cable from 2002 to 2006. She is past president of The International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association (12-2008 to 12-2012) and continues as a board member and co-chair of the Conference and Media Trip Committee. Maralyn is always ready to explore different flavors of various cultures and share their tale. People she meets along the way are the best part.

Never did I expect to find an authentic multi-generation family-owned and operated natural area that would provide me with so many different experiences and opportunities. I’ve visited Oahu many times, but never Kualoa Ranch, where you see traditions flourish. In Hawaiian, Kualoa means “long back.” When you see the land, [...]

Having visited and enjoyed Switzerland in the past, I was pleasantly surprised by the Appenzell region. Located in the northeastern area, its dimensions are only 258.5 square miles (416 square kilometers). This area has the lowest population in Switzerland, with 26 villages that average 23 inns per village.
Puerto Rico has so much more to offer than I could begin to imagine. I'd certainly encourage those who enjoy culinary travel to put it on their calendar for next year, when Saborea will take place April 1-3, 2011
I'm enamored with a book on Absente. During the past two years, quite a few authors have written about the magic of this famous liqueur. However, Carrier's compilation brings everything to life in spectacular fashion. It combines history with over 130 photos of well known works of art with numerous artists' biographies…
Thirty Percent Chance of Enlightenment by Tim Brookes certainly enlightens. Brookes is able to articulate with humor and a sense of life and culture acceptance that transport the reader to experience India alongside him.
Visiting Southeast Asia has been a frequent experience for me. I did graduate study there in 1989. Thailand has been a personal favorite in this area, and since my first visit to Bangkok, I've gone North to Chang Mai and as far South as the island of Koh Samui.
Flowers' road to Sedona and Fournos shows a wealth of exceptional experience and talent. Ivan Flowers' birthplace was Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York.

When visiting the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, I expected a history of the space program. Unexpected was the excitement I felt in wanting to return and experience more—and even hopefully go to Space Camp in the future.
The various Space Camp programs are designed for ages seven and up—children to adults, and open to families, educators and those seeking corporate team-building activities. They offer something for everyone in 52 weeks of camp adventures.
As guests enter this state-run, privately funded NASA centre, their first vision is of the world’s only vertical standing Saturn V Replica. Once inside, everything comes to life. If you want to research and study rockets, it’s all there. If space is your interest, there are more than 1,500 artifacts from America’s achievement in space exploration.
