What? Another Blog?Lately, I've been playing around with food more than usual. I've been photographing it, cooking it, and just generally enjoying it. For my last birthday, my daughters gave me a gas grill, which I've been experimenting with. I can see a lot more playing with food in my future.
I have always loved food. My birth family enjoyed a huge variety of foods, I realize in retrospect. I was exposed to numerous ethnic foods (Chinese, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Russian, Polish, Italian, French) as a youngster and have broadened my tastes ever since. There is no category of food that I dislike or avoid, although I certainly have favorites. For years, I wrote for a food magazine, often researching a single subject or food-related topic. I also reviewed restaurants for another publication.
So my decision to write about food will probably not surprise most of my friends. I don't yet have a clear plan for this blog. I will probably include a certain number of recipes, some anecdotes, and maybe even a few cooking techniques. I will definitely include pictures, most of which can be found on my flickr page. As for the rest, well—time will tell.
