Richard Martin launched Food Republic, along with prolific chef Marcus Samuelsson, in 2011 as an outlet to get men to eat better and cook more. His tips for dining in potentially shady countries include looking for a place that’s clean and crowded with people who look like they’re enjoying themselves. If you have the opportunity to embark on a four and a half hour meal, a truly adventurous globetrotter should of course do it. But at the end of the day, simple pleasures reign supreme. Richard’s contribution to Heineken’s #DROPPED council is simple: Doing your research before traveling is important, but getting lost with a portable French Press full of local coffee can be one of the greatest experiences of all. Stay caffeinated.
The Heineken Dropped campaign is a global initiative to launch the Heineken Voyage, the fifth chapter of Heineken’s global Legends campaign. Heineken will search the globe for four men who embody the “Legendary Traveler” and send them on voyages around the world to challenge them to travel outside their comfort zone. One of these travelers will be from the US.
