Posted by courtneyschultz On February - 26 - 2013

Campbell alumnus of the Class of 2005, Elaine Lee has found herself traveling the world without ever having to step out of New York City.

Lee co-created Escapelicious, which showcases a twelve-episode series food and travel show to demonstrate the unique diversity of New York City.

Each episode highlights a different culture, often unknown to the typical Newyorker, according to the website.

The website characterizes the series as “a labor of love born from the desire to escape one’s mundane adulthood and live out the childhood dream of globetrotting.”

Escapelicious’ inspiration derived from Lee’s desire to be a globetrotter and to experience different cultures.

Each episode will feature a guest from a different culture as he or she opens their home to help host Elaine Lee escape from her everyday life into their own, distinct country and culture.

The guest also teaches Lee how to prepare a dish from a particular part of the world.

“While our official episodes are in production, we decided to collaborate with our social media friends from Instagram,Facebook, and Twitter to create Escapelicious Quickie, featuring recipes shared by our social media friends around-the-world,” Lee said.

Lee encourages CU students and faculty to expore the social media opportunities of Escapelicious:

1. Liking them on Facebook.
2. Subscribing to their Youtube Channel.
3. Follow Elaine Lee on Twitter.
4. Connect on Instagram.
5. Share easy-to-make, international recipes with #escapelicious.
