Inspired by my recent bout of unemployment and the work of my very good friend Shaz, I have finally decided to put two of my favourite things together -- writing and food -- resulting in what I hope will be a belly journal of the yummiest kind.
Not surprisingly, research puts food as one of the most blogged about topics in the world. I myself am an avid reader of the gastronomical chronicles of Delishaz, Urbanspoon, The Breakfast Blog, tummyrumbles and more.
Memories of food (both eating and cooking) go as far back as I can remember, and played a very important role in my happy childhood. Growing up with a mother who was best known for her cooking skills meant it was assumed I would naturally inherit them.
No, not always the case.
Fast forward to my mid 20s, and I am still a novice to the wooden spoon. I am never ashamed to quote Michealangelo's "Ancora Imparo" (I am still learning) in regards to my cooking repertoire, because it means - hopefully - that I can only be better.
Peace, love, adventure,
"One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating." ~Luciano Pavarotti
