Miles to go before I eat: Foodigenous!

Miles to go before I eat: Foodigenous!

Writing and food might just be the most heavenly combination a blogger could concoct. That’s exactly what Adam Horvath does in his blog, website and social media pages called Foodigenous (food-IDGE-enous), a culinary adventure to foreign lands like Philadelphia, Elmira, East Hampton and even Newark. With a background in the food industry and a day job as a CFO, Adam’s blog is a passion project. His experiences not only recount amazing food but the amazing places where the food lives. And there are the people, the inventors of things like a pizza made with American cheese and a clam chowder pie to make you weep.

“I’m the combination of my grandmother’s chicken paprikash and Indiana Jones movies,” he says. “If you read my blogs, I try and shoehorn as much pop culture in as possible. I started writing more when I went to college. I wrote for my college newspaper and I started writing short stories. I also started writing scripts but, like, little tiny short films. Came up during that era of Kevin Smith. He’s a Jersey guy, so I’m like, yeah, maybe that’s a possibility. My college internship was for Robert DeNiro, Tribeca Film Productions, and I was the first-ever accountant intern. I just did it to get in, meet people and write, you know. Maybe that was my in.”

Our chat on the Type. Tune. Tint. podcast reminds you of a backyard conversation that wanders aimlessly but always returns to that intoxicating combination of food and writing. Here you go:
