I travel, cook, eat, observe, interact, live and write.
Tinos About, the magazine of Tinos Island (Cyclades Islands, Greece) published an interview with me July 2019:
Marc d’Entremont : THE ART OF GASTRONOMIC JOURNALISM
I do travel to Greece frequently.
If you prefer a condensed version of who I am…
As a culinary and cultural travel writer I seek connections among people, activities, the environment and what they eat that tell the story of a region/culture, whether that be in the remote Andes Mountains or the streets of Puerto Vallarta.
Additional publications include the internationally circulated print and digital editions of the Hellenic News of America for which I am their monthly travel columnist and my travel guide to Argentina.
Industry experience includes over 45 years as a chef, hotel and restaurant manager, catering and education.
I’m an active member in the American Culinary Federation.

Dear Mr. d’Entremont,
After reading your blog on Evansburg, I am curious to know if you are the chef at Osteria or do you have another local connection? I live “down the road” in Arcola, in a stone farmhouse with the wrap-around Victorian porch. We think the first owner of our house was John Rees, miller, whose wife was the daughter of Frederick Mulhenberg, first Speaker of the US House of Representatives, who lived in Trappe. There is a Quaker meeting house on Black Rock Rd. an Upper Prov. Twp. website places the establishment of this meeting house at 1740.
Unbelievable how well-wirtten and informative this was.
Thank you Magdelina for your nice comment. Please tell your friends about my blog and suite101 articles. I’d enjoy more readers such as yourself.
Sorry for not seeing this much earlier but, for some reason, your comment did not show up on my dashboard or email. No I’m not the chef at Osteria. I retired from active kitchen work at the end of 2008 and have devoted full time to establishing a freelance cultural travel and food writing career. Besides international travel, I’ve always been interested in our local world, and we certainly have history in this area. I’ll certainly check out the Meeting House, being a member of Abington Meeting myself. I’ve just returned from a press trip to Missouri and will be publishing articles both on-line and in print media. Take care and thanks for your interest!
We hope that you are doing well. While surfing the web for nice travel websites we came across this site and want to congratulate you on the great webpage you got there!
Currently we are putting the finishing touches to our new website which is called Tripsofa. The main purpose of Tripsofa will be to offer an exciting new platform where travelers can find the latest travel information and where they are able to share their travel experiences and ask travel questions.
As we are all aware, there is a lot of travel information on the web. However, the problem is that many of the websites have not been updated, contain incorrect information or are plain and simply outdated. Hopefully this can change with Tripsofa as the site will be continuously updated by our members and staff so that travelers can easily find a wealth of travel-related information without getting annoyed by excessive advertising which – unfortunately – seems to be the norm with most travel websites nowadays.
Tripsofa has been built on a system which integrates and fuses traditional forum elements with community aspects. Travelers can vote for the best answers which means that the best ones will show up first.
Our biggest problem is that we need to spread the word about Tripsofa so that more travelers will know about our non-commercial travel information platform. We are hoping that by bringing in some industry experts such as you, we will be able to turn Tripsofa into a popular online hangout for travelers.
So we really hope to hear back from you and if you have any feedback for us then please be sure to let us know. You can sign up on http://www.tripsofa.com and become one of the first beta testers. We definitely hope that you will give Tripsofa a try as you seem to be an avid travel enthusiast yourself.
Have a great day!
Think we should do a culinary tour to Cuba? Why not? BTW- the plane is direct to Havana from LAX, via Continental. Flights from Mexico have been cancelled. Americans are welcome.
Maybe we can work with IFTWA and make it a reality
Sounds terrific! I did not know that the USA had allowed direct flights.
Hi Marc! Would you do me the honour of accepting the Kreativ Blogger Award? Details in my post http://restlessjo.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/kreativly-tagged/
Thank you very much. I’ll work on the details.
I don’t believe I didn’t respond to your generous offer. Please forgive me as I’ve been swamped with writing and planning a major series of trips that start in two weeks. I’ve read your blog on the award, and I will return the favor, but it may be a couple more weeks due to deadlines.

Have you ever been to Israel? You will found a fabulous culinary country. Would love to tour and cook with you in Israel! http://www.cookinisrael.com
No I have not yet traveled to Israel. If you can arrange a sponsored press trip for me I’ll be happy to go. I usually pay my own airfare, but I require all travel expenses while in the country to be covered – accommodations, meals, transportation in the country. In return I will write no less than 6 articles that are published in the outlets listed on my site, but I will never lie. If I do not like something, I will not write about it.
Hello Marc d’Entremont ,
We are Greece destination D M C / travel providers located in the city of Heraklion island of Crete – Greece.
We are operating special concepts of travel as food, Wine, culture and hands on cooking classes offering a combination of entertainment, cultural and archaeological sightseeing, guided tours, food and wine tasting and last but not least hands on cooking classes.
I was wondering if it’s possible and how we can post one or more of the packages we provide.
can u point me to great places to eat in FLorence and Verona italy?
Marc, I know you are a fan of Clarissa F. Dillon who still lives and works in Pennsylvania doing what she does best—sharing her great passion for 18th – century domestic arts. She stars in a series now called One Cool Colonial created during the Pandemic. I read your blog and also saw your comment on “Vermeer painting” as I felt the same when we were filming at the window!
Best to you,
Radnor Memorial Library
Thank you very much for the news!! Is One Cool Colonial on the web?
Yes, Marc, on Vimeo. I am Clarissa’s neighbor, a librarian, and we started this little web series (not a filmmaker here) to keep us out of trouble while social distancing. It starts with a fun two-minute trailer back in May and we are still making episodes. I had a weird Vermeer moment and googled that and sure enough found you had the same. Gotta keep the window on the left…
She is so wickedly outspoken and wonderful — I read your blog articles on your visit with her and know that you feel the same. How could you forget Clarissa??
Thanks for your speedy reply. Stay well!!
PS: don’t know which post on Clarissa you read. I wrote 2 articles on Clarissa for my site: (1) https://travelpenandpalate.com/2016/10/18/clarissa-dillon-on-the-great-age-of-english-puddings/ (2) https://travelpenandpalate.com/2010/11/01/church-keys-are-going-extinct-but-not-clarissa-dillon-colonial-cooking-in-the-21st-century/ and included her is a couple for other publications (that are not on line).
Marc, I read both posts on Clarissa and continued to read your posts on other Pennsylvania destinations. Didn’t stop there, though…as
you have so much to offer here. For many people traveling is not an option and I hope even more people find you! I’ll do my best to spread the word at my library, Radnor Memorial, in downtown Wayne, PA.
Hope all is well. I am sending you a link to a recent post on my blog where I write about your Massey House adventure. Little did I know that visitpa.com would post my blog as an event because of Holi-stay! Stay safe!
