I’m a journalist who spends an abnormal amount of time thinking about food–often at the expense of my waistline and wallet. There isn’t much I won’t eat, and I’ll pretty much try anything once. To me, food is the ultimate universal language–the more you know, the more you are able to converse and connect with other people on a whole different level.
I don’t profess to be an expert on food of any kind, nor do I have any professional cooking experience. But this is what I know: I love to eat, cook and bake, and that the feeling you get when you serve something you made with love never gets old. Commiserating over good food with good people is always satisfying–whether it’s during a ten-course Chinese banquet with family, a backyard barbecue cookout with friends, a quiet candlelit dinner with your honey or an impromptu feast on a rickety old boat floating down the Mekong river with a bunch of people you just met. Life just doesn’t get any better than that.
Naturally, I want to learn as much as I can about all manner of animal, vegetable and mineral, and write about my experiences, not only for those near and dear to my heart, but also for complete strangers whose culinary wanderlust and curiosity may have led them to my little blog. After all, food–and conversation–is always best when shared.
