No matter where you are in the world there are no strangers when you are traveling, only friends you haven’t met.
The book brings to life a three-year global adventure in a unique oversized, full-color, hardcover book. FORKS —three more years in the making—incorporates more than 500 color photographs and 40 recipes from all over the world to complement Allan’s stories of cultural discovery and human connection.
“The best way to experience the world,” says Allan, “is to see it through photographs, to feel it through stories of connection and culture, and to taste it in local food.”
As with any adventure there are good days – as well as the bad. While in Bolivia he crashed his BMW motorcycle and broke his leg. While in the Colombian jungle he was escorted to a remote waterfall at gunpoint by a rebel group. But it is always the most dicey of situations which make us appreciate the more routine.
“Every photograph, story, and recipe embodies the importance of connecting with people,” says Allan. “This book presents readers an opportunity to try something new, perhaps to taste flavors of a new food or to journey into unknown territories. Every experience is an opportunity to connect with others.”
