It's no suprise, I love food. I come from a family that does food well. You might call us foodies. I believe in slow food and eating together. I enjoy the culture and history of food as much as I enjoy preparing and eating food. I love to travel to see the sights, but mostly I travel to eat wonderful new foods.
As a field archaeologist for the past 6 years, I spent a lot of time wandering in remote areas and happened upon many edible morsels. Much to my husbands displeasure, I often harvested things like wild garlic, berries, mushrooms, weeds, and snails and slipped them into meals.
I take great pleasure in preparing a meal from harvest to table. I want to handle my food in its purest form. I want to know the history and tradition behind my food.
I have started this blog because I have ideas to share, tips to offer, and stories to tell.
Other things to know about me... I have two talented sisters also into food. My twin sister has a degree in pastry arts and is passionate about wedding cakes. Our big sister is a nutritionist and registered dietitician, teaching others what effect their food choices have on their lives.
I try to lead an active and healthy lifestyle by competing in races such as triathalons and marathons (I have to do something to counter act all the wonderful food I consume!).
Moving recently from the south to much colder climates in the north gives me a differnt realm of food to explore and new people to share my culture and perspective with.
I hope that you enjoy the kitchen as much as I do!
