Hello world!

Food. Extremely high on my priority list. I’ve been interested in cooking for a long time.

I think it was because my mother couldn’t cook. Let me rephrase that. She could cook, but choose not to cook well.

One summer, I took a beginner cooking course. That was it. The fire was lit and I saw the possibility of food. My eating philosophy went from “eating to live” to living to eat.” Since then my thinking has changed to embrace both. Living to eat is self-explanatory. Eating to live is finding foods and ingredients that can contribute to a healthier and happier (within legal limits) life. 🙂 Instead of choosing one or the other, I choose both.

There have been numerous influences and inspirations along the journey. Hopefully this blog will pay homage to many (if not all) of them.

This blog is mainly about my thoughts, experiments, triumphs, and failures related to food (there may be sidetracks and tangents along the way).

If you want more information on any of the pages or posts, leave a comment, I’ll get back to you.

Hopefully you enjoy the journey. If not, that’s okay too.

Until then, peace out.
