You know, I’ve been thinking about blogging for a long time. There is something to be said for being able to record your experiences and share your stories and adventures with family, friends, or whoever else choses to read your blog. I have read many blogs over the last few years – blogs about political commentary, values based leadership, American style, sports, and yes, the culinary arts. I have gained an immeasurable respect for the people that share their stories with the world and allow individuals to come together based on the notion of shared values and a desire to experience new and interesting things.

Thus, I am resolved in giving back to a community from which I have learned so much – to share my experiences, thoughts, and advice with you, the reader. I’m going to write about my Epicurean Adventures because, if you know me, you know food is one of my greatest passions. I believe that the concept of food is one that encompasses the preservation of life, tells a story about cultural traditions and heritage, allows creativity and spontaneity to flourish, and lastly, brings friends and family together to break bread.

This blog is not just about Real Food. It’s about Real People and their experiences. I hope you enjoy this blog, as much as I will enjoy sharing my Epicurean Adventures with you!

    Your food is amazing and my MIL and I can’t stop talking about you!! we really enjoyed everything and now I am inspired to try some new recipes…everything was soo good…. I’ll definitely check out the pasta store too. Keep on blogging and being creative–I’m going to pass your blog on to my brother, who is also a total foodie…maybe some time you guys can come over b/c I know Manish would love to hear about your political stuff…(but MIL and I agree we would be ashamed to cook such ordinary things in front of you!

    I seriously like what I have read so far and will try your recipes. Keep up the good work. I want to try my hand at making braesaula (spelling probably wrong) but am afraid it may be too hot here in Tenerife.

    Great idea to blog about charcuterie!! I actually have been doing a lot of it myself with the slow weeks ahead in March at the club. I have a few posts on my site, as well as recipes on the “Charcuterie” page if you’d like to try them on A lot of the recipes are from the book by Micheal Ruhlman. Just scale them down a bit.

    You commented on one of my posts last week about the Artisan Cheese Festival and I saw you later at the Food Blog Forum. I missed the opportunity to introduce myself then, but I have been reading your posts and the photography is beautiful and the dishes look amazing. I am forever looking for interesting recipes to cook for my local honey, Joe, and I definitely will be checking out Louisiana Seafood and taking my turn with your recipe for “something” Milanese. Keep inspiring …
