My Inspiration

Food and cooking is a fairly new interest of mine.  I’d say it’s more of a deep curiosity.  Being in my mid-30s and newly married, it hit me a little later than most.  Most people will think that marriage sparked the fascination due to the domestic demand for “home cookin”.  It was pure coincidence.  My husband did have a hand in my inspiration, however.  We both enjoy good food and frequent good restaurants whenever possible.

I’m not entirely sure how or when I began tentatively testing the culinary waters.  I do know it started with a roasted chicken.  It was after watching an educational and technique episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations with Thomas Keller showing how easy it was to prepare a chicken to roast.  I always loved my Mother’s roasted chicken, and so I thought, if it’s indeed as simple as he is showing, even I can do this.

Granted, I had the help of a Cuisinart Rotisserie, but the oven version is just as easy.  When the chicken was done, I took it out to rest.  And with great nervousness, I served it to my husband for dinner.  We both took a bite.  It was moist, flavorful and truly delicious.  This simple success made me wonder what else I could do.  And so here I am.

The new year seems like a good place to start a blog.  I’d like to document as well as share my adventures in cooking, travel and performance art.  My husband, Michael and I will be going to France in September and so I’m already researching the cuisine, the culture, not to mention getting around in Paris.
