At First Bite

As you can probably guess, I like food. A lot. I can’t think about warm, freshly baked almond croissants without a slight feeling of giddiness, and secretly daydream about kitchen space in the same way most girls entertain fantasies of walk-in closets. It’s not just that I like to eat; think of it more along the lines of “a pursuit of the culinary aesthetic” – an inner craving for  the homegrown, made-from-scratch and authentic in the context of scenes far-away and familiar. Food, for me, is not just flavor or even function; at the risk of sounding cliche, it’s a reference to a series of points along a journey where I find myself the most content – the intersection of the edible and the everyday.

    Liking food….you’re a true Serb! Try soaking anise seeds in brandy to add to your biscotti. Yummy. From the older grego girl!
