Oh, why hullo.

December 29, 2008

Dear Readers,

Once again I’ve disappeared into the dregs of society. You see, my life is tough. I’m constantly bombarded by amazing food, and the people that accompany it. I spend my time slurping, tasting, talking and learning. Its so utterly exhausting, that I seem to have entirely neglected this little blog.

But blog-neglect aside, I seem to have a pretty incredible life. I can walk to work, grab a pear from the coop en route, and enjoy the hell out of that pear. My job description involves constantly tasting with people, and engaging them in the newest gastronomic thingicism. The more I learn about food, the more I realize how much more I need to learn. Even when I’m home I’m reading about – and experimenting with food.

Of course, being surrounded by the biggest food-nerds in the business helps. In the last few months I’ve made some of the most wonderful friends. They are passionate, opinionated, food nerds. People who live for cheese, bread, spices, and olive oil. People who prioritize the role of good food in their lives. And because of this, their self-reliance knows no bounds. They cook everything from scratch, brew their own beer, plant vegetable gardens, raise chickens… Who new that living such a hedonist lifestyle could be so sustainable and gratifying.

Well, I hope that this explains where I’ve been the past few months. Once again I’ll play the slow game of catch-up.

Until next time, Sweatergirl
