Good food, clean air, and water. Three things I can't live without. Cooking with fresh, local ingredients and preparing something that not only looks good but tastes good too is what spending time in the kitchen is all about.
I live in Boston, love the Red Sox, and recently spent six months in New York eating my way through Manhattan. I plan on recapping my New York dining experiences and reviewing my favorite restaurants here in Greater Boston. I'm also going to try to convince myself in writing that my career should be in the kitchen, not in a suburban office. We'll see how successful I am.
