Helen Hokin's Autumn Picks
Travelling to a different part of the world usually means sampling the local cuisine, but if you’re headed somewhere as uninhabited and challenging as the Antarctic, then you only get to eat what you bring with you.

Helen Hokin's spring picks
Spring has well and truly sprung- in fact, you'd think we'd skipped straight to summer. We've been frantically busy at Foodtripper and have a host of brand new features and giveaways to usher in the season. And don't forget to check out our TV series, 'Food Tripper' airing now on Travel Channel on Sky 251 with new episodes being filmed on location as I write.

Helen Hokin's February Picks
Kung Hei Fat Choi! London's Chinese New Year celebrations are one of the biggest outside China, and fittingly, we kick things off with a chat with Ken Hom, OBE. And what a month for Cornwall where pasty makers finally get their long-awaited PGI staus and the wonderful Camel Valley triumphs again with 1st prize for the World's Best Sparkling Rose. And talking of prizes, we have a week's worth of Bigham's Gourmet Pies to give away.

Helen Hokin's December Picks
It's Christmas and we have a host of festive features, cookery holiday ideas and gourmet gifts to give away. In London, the restaurant scene has never been hotter. With Heston's 'Dinner' at The Mandarin now taking bookings for the January launch and Wolfgang Puck on his way to The Dorchester, 2011 promises to be an exciting year - for Londoners, at least.

Helen Hokin's November Picks
There's a brand new Gallic phenomenon that goes by the name of Gourming; a French-style update on afternoon grazing akin to Spain's tradition of tapas. We head to Moet & Chandon HQ to find out more. We've heard whisperings of a six-star London hotel launch. Win 'The World Atlas of Whisky' an erudite tome by expert 'whiskateer' Dave Broom. And from the very talented chocolatier, Marc Demarqutte, there are sumptuous Nutkeeper's Chocolates up for grabs.

Helen Hokin's October Picks
We follow recent landees Obama and Tom Cruise to the fabulous new Hotel Verta, billed as London's Gateway, at the London Heliport. Arriving by helicopter is de rigeur as is dinner at Patrisey inside. Locally sourced ingredients - yes we got that already - but honey from Battersea? Who knew. It's Avocado Week from 25th to 31st October and on that note, Foodtripper received news that the Chilean miners ate avocados in at least two of their first few meals back home. And very good on them, too.

Helen Hokin's September Picks
Travel Channel has teamed up with Foodtripper to make an exciting new show entitled ‘Foodtripper Miami’ to be broadcast this coming October (on SKY 251 and 252). Written and presented by Foodtripper’s Helen Hokin, the show explores how recent history has shaped the way Miamians eat today and why The South Beach Wine & Food Festival is key to the city’s newfound status as the USA’s hottest destination for food tourists.

Helen Hokin's August Picks
Foodtripper goes hunter-gathering in Northern Finland. We check in for a full inspection of the £5 million transformation of the Greenhouse Hotel in Bournemouth, sample the summer seafood menu at The Petersham Hotel in south west London, and go canal cruising in Burgundy. The Hungry Cyclist's back with a thrilling London tandem tour. And we have the latest on cookery and wine courses from Foodtripper's preferred partners.

Helen Hokin's July Picks
Foodtripper: The Collection has just launched. This boutique selection of the world's best cookery holidays brings global gourmet retreats direct to your fingertips... your very own delicious escape is just a click away. On Foodtripper TV, we’ve invited top chef Rowley Leigh to make the most of Spain's short-lived Picota cherry season, cooking up a classic clafoutis. And we have a fab holiday to Spain's Jerte Valley for one lucky individual.

Helen Hokin's June Picks
In anticipation of a long, hot, British summer I stay close to home dropping by Le Cafe Anglais where Rowley Leigh  - just turned 60 - shares future plans  for the restaurant and role as poster boy for the forthcoming Picota cherry season. Across town, at The Lanesborough, Heinz Beck's elegant summer menu is served. Go there for the chaud-froid Herbal infusion with tuna tartare and green tea sorbet - more Mediterranean gluttony than molecular gastronomy.

Helen Hokin's May Picks
Foodtripper met the most lauded chefs on earth at The World's Fifty Best Restaurant Awards. Taking 1st prize is Noma in Copehagen knocking El Bulli off the top spot and sending a ripple effect through the chart. Heston moves down to 3rd place. Hibiscus is in, by a whisker, at number 49 leaving the total number of Brits in the top 50 at a mere three. If you missed our live tweets on the night then start following us on twitter for future live updates.

Helen Hokin's April Picks
Travel this month, with volcanic ash clogging the skies, might be all but vicarious. But in anticipation of trips to come, we have three top dining spots in L.A., an expedition into the Khao Lak jungle to make a Thai green curry, and for Foodtripper TV, I travelled to Miami to meet the talented Clay Conley head chef of Azul at The Mandarin Oriental - arguably the city's most upscale eatery. Naturally.

Helen Hokin's Pick of the Week
Tom Kevill-Davies is The Hungry Cyclist. He agreed to let me interview him about cycling across the Americas and his new book, ‘The Hungry Cyclist’ on one condition: we talked as we cycled - on a 1960s tandem, through central London, in rush hour. Sure, why didn’t I think of that!

Helen Hokin's Pick of the Week
Years of food and travel writing have brought their challenges: scaling the Andes for ripe avocados; gulping down insects impaled on sticks in Beijing; brewing coffee over the campfire in the Rocky Mountains with real cowboys for company. OK, maybe that last one wasn’t so tough.

Helen Hokin's Pick of the Week
As hard as they might try, Foodtripper's seasoned travel writers have some way to go before they can match the distance covered by delivery vans shunting chandeliers, mirrors and imported rugs across country to our MPs second homes, as revealed last week.
