We’re lucky. We live in a place with a well-equipped kitchen, where local, sustainable, delightful foodstuffs are close by—as is a city that has a vibrant and enthusiastic restaurant scene and a growing number of ethnic food markets. Plus we’re able to travel to exotic places and explore other food cultures, and obsessive enough to want to blog about all of it. And while some of our neighbors’ habits may seem strange to us (chain restaurants, processed foods, factory farming) we hope to be welcoming and appetizing to all. Enjoy!
