Anyone who has dipped their toes in F&B will be able to relate: it’s nearly impossible for kitchen staff to take extended breaks from the demands of the kitchen.

Even so, Isadora makes it a point to travel for the sake of rest, rejuvenation and, not least, creative inspiration.

Freshly churned goat butter from Extebarri, another one of Isadora’s finds.

“Apart from having discipline at work, I feel like I should also have more discipline to go on a holiday  because sometimes I have to cancel holidays for work even though they’ve already been paid for,” said Chai. “I try to take six to twelve mini trips about three to five days long throughout the year.”

Here, she lists five food discoveries from her search for deliciousness to whet your appetite for travel.
