Thinking back on our 12 + years of friendship, a lot of good memories come to mind: the all-night brownie-baking extravaganza in 7th grade, the evening we spent 5 hours attempting to make our own darned fig-newtons, eating a baked brie Thanksgiving dinner together our sophomore year of college in a Greenwich Village restaurant because we couldn't afford the airfare home to Seattle, daring each other to have the first taste of an intimidating platter of black squid ink pasta in Boston's North End, inhaling an entire jar of almond butter in one sitting in Vancouver, BC, oh how the list goes on.
While we eventually moved to different parts of the country, attended different schools, and pursued different careers, there's one thing that has never changed.
And that is the fact that we plan to eat, toast, bake, stir, taste, sample, drink, sniff, and cook our way through life. In fact, that's one of the things that has enriched our friendship most over the years, and we just couldn't bear not to share it with you.
We hope you'll enjoy our blog and participate with us in this wonderful food-loving community. Here we will detail our culinary adventures, reveal our stumbled-upon secrets, and document life, love, and the meaning of food. Salud!
P.S. That's us up there, posing beside a beautifully crafted outdoor pizza oven at City Farmer, a community garden we discovered in Vancouver, British Columbia. That's where our buddy, Rachel, lives. All three of us were dazzled by the beauty of this urban garden and the multitude of classes they offer for grownups and youngsters alike.
