Simon has truly lived out his personal motto, "Go everywhere, eat everything." He has experienced cuisine in all 50 states and more than 70 countries. He regularly shares his unique story and encyclopedic knowledge of food and its history in his "This Month In Food" column for and through three bestselling food and travel memoirs: Eat My Globe, Eating for Britain, and most recently, Fed White & Blue: Finding America with My Fork.
