Chicory and Nori Salad w/Avocado + Hazelnuts

Sometimes, the little inconsistencies of travel are what fuel my curiosity and makes travel exciting and fun. In Italy, “where will I find coffee?”  In Turkey, “how do I order a pastry?”  In Japan, “is this toothpaste or spackling for the tub?”  But sometimes,…
