Aspiring Foodie

I'm not a trained cook. I've never taken a cooking class.

I don't know anything about wine.

I'm a novice to fine dining.

What I do know is I'm obsessed with food. I read cookbooks like my Baptist Grandma McGuire read the Bible. I cried while watching the documentary King Corn. I would rather spend my money on food--at farmers' markets, fine restaurants, or King Arthur Flour--than a buy a house.

My goal here is to track my obsession with food through restaurant reviews, book reviews, recipe reviews, and random reflections and share, like a family-style meal, with those hungry like me.

As they say, "Bon Appetite!"

  1. Congrats on your new blog! I always wonder why we worry about spending money to eat well and eat right -- if we were taking care of our car, wouldn't we buy the best tires? We can save and live on the cheap in other areas, but we shouldn't do it when it comes to our health and enjoyment in life.
