Stop baking bread! We understand the therapeutic reasons that in times of anxiousness people turn to baking bread. It offers feelings of creation, satisfaction – the kneading with your hands and comfort in times of crisis. Instead, why not try using this time being stuck at home to tour the world with your pallet? After all, cooking offers many of the same benefits. But how are motorcycles and cooking connected? Allan Karl shows you in his book Forks: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine and Connection.
Allan Karl rode his motorcycle around the world through thirty five countries, across five continents and sourced forty recipes of native foods to share with all of us. His RTW adventure is more poignant today than ever before. Allan shows us that we are more similar than different. And, as the entire world is experiencing this crisis at the same time, by experiencing new foods from other countries, we too can show that we are all in this together.
On Episode 8 of Bedtime Stories with The Motelorcyclist, Allan Karl shares with us what inspired his adventure and the inspiration for writing his bestselling book Forks. Watch his full interview here.
Also ICYMI, Wes Fleming host of the popular podcast Chasing the Horizon discusses emissions for motorcycles and what we may soon expect. You can watch his segment on Bedtime Stories with The Motelorcyclist here.
