I’ve had a bit of a hiatus on this blog. Life and circumstances happened. The details are not important, this is not an apology. It is a post to let folks out there know that I have not abandoned creating recipes, and writing about food. It is a passion of mine, and one I intend to continue pursuing.
So if you are still with me, I am starting to put up new recipes, and will be adding more in depth articles on food knowledge and history. Also the new website look will be up, soon, hopefully before the end of the year. It is an overwhelming task, even for a blog that is my size.
Lately, I’ve been reading Bee Wilson’s “Consider the Fork.” A book about how kitchens evolved, and the implements we use. For me, as a chef, this is such and informative and interesting book. It talks about the evolution of the enclosed oven, the gadgetry that has been invented, and abandoned throughout the centuries, and how electricity plays a large aspect in the everyday freedom we have in kitchens today. I’m fascinated by the information, and the amount of research that went into this book. It is an easy read, Wilson has a conversational tone to her writing. It’s like she’s telling you this story in your living room. If you have any interest in why we don’t play with open fires any more, and when the fork first came into use, read this book.
You can look forward to more mini-book reviews from me, and if you have a book you are writing, and want an opinion, let me know, I’d love to preview more cookbooks, and food history books.
Keep cooking, and keep taking all those tasty pictures.
