Hi everyone!!,

my name is Jon Miranda, im 30, married for 3 years and utterlly, extremely addicted to both food and food sciences, everything about it is interesting, from the way of cooking and methods to what those methods do to the food, its all delicious.

ive been in kitchens for the last 15 years, and a sous chef or chef for the last 10, i LOVE food, and cooking, but not the service aspect as i feel its draining my passion in exchange for man hours.
during my time cooking ive also become a recording engineer along side always learning about sound and music, as well as persuing video editing and amateur cinematography,  i love it all!

what am i trying to accommplish? I want to finally stop talking about it, and finally compile my ideas and travel to find what inspired me in the first place about where my heritage is and why i cant break my addiction to incredible asian cuisines, all to culminate in a finely tuned, fresh and inspired cook book as well daily vlogs of my experiences and thoughts as my trip continues. 

What i need from you guys:
since i have plenty of video and audio equipment, thats all covered to get started, but i WILL need help getting myself and my wife shannon to all the locations(budget or otherwise) as well as places to places to stay and the ability to eat consistently each day. 

What you guys get: 
any contributors will be of course thanked and as a gracious return, i will go out of my way to make sure any requests for dishes you would like to see filmed and spoken about, i will find as best i can the places with the BEST dishes or i will find the best recipes and create tuturials for those dishes, i wont b able to do all of them, but me searching out these treasures ive never had is kind of the point :p 

so what i think im asking in all of this, is a chance, to do this better and dedicate a proper effort to get the best images of some of the best food while fing out its secrets.

thank you so kindly for your time
