The Art of Lost is a swiftly growing food and travel digital publication focused on finding those delicious moments to get lost in while exploring the world. In a generation epitomizing the habitual essence of instant gratification, the desire was born to features those delicious moments that pull us into a mindful presentness; a pause in time reminding us what it means to truly exist. Launched in the country of "slow living" in August of 2015, The Art of Lost began its journey in Milan, quickly growing its readership to span across 86 countries. The journal provides a curated, highly visual and photographical diary view for those with a big appetite for international food culture and stories off the beaten path- tasting life to the fullest, delving into and getting lost in a savory dish, a conversation with a stranger in a busy tram on foreign land, music that possesses you to dance, the muddled musings of pen and paper in a cozy, corner coffee shop, the smell of a memory...

 

Stay turned for "Behind the Apron" a photo and video series that takes an intimate look behind the scenes and into the lives of those behind our food. Launching the end of 2016/beginning of 2017.

An Note from the Editor

I have found, it is often in the least likely of places that we find the strange, comfortable, homeyness of foreign lands and this is what fascinates me. Ironically, this is through the paradoxical excitement of their eccentricities, commonly through our bellies - sampling scorpion in a side alley of the hot, humid and sticky streets of Bangkok with a chattering group of new friends; spooning in red tree ants with beef and holy basil at a food stand in the bustling downtown of Siem Reap, Cambodia with a young Khmer girl; downing my first shot of fiery grappa on the back patio of a vineyard in Tuscany with an Italian family that quickly became my own... Food is our universal language; we may speak it accented and peppered with different spices, prepare our tongues at different temperatures and dapple in the hides and flesh of different creatures- but, at the end of the day, we all sit down to share in the same beautiful speech - a dish shared in the company with those we love.

Let's get talking, let's get cooking, let's get lost.
