Who I am.

I'm just going to leave some pictures of pizza here. That's pretty much all you need to know about me.

Ah… the age old question. Who am I?

Well, let’s start with who I’m not.  I’m not a professional chef. I don’t work in the food service world. I’ve never run a kitchen. I never went to culinary school.

BUT… I DO love food; both eating and cooking it. I love to figure out how things are made. I mostly use regular household appliances for my food experiments. Every once in a while I’ll buy some cool culinary toy (CAN YOU SAY “BLOWTORCH”????!!!!) and become obsessed with it.  I usually have homemade wine aging in my basement and some sort of cured meat hanging in the same makeshift wine cellar.

I cook everything from Thomas Keller recipes, to microwaved Velveeta nachos.

This site is basically a way for me to put all of my crazy food related thoughts on to virtual paper. I hope you like it and get inspired to cook… or at least eat.

Please feel free to leave me a note on Twitter or Facebook if you’d like to get in touch with me.

    Hey Tom! You’re listed as a “blogger friend” on the Forest Hills CSA. Do you live in the area? We’re looking to join that CSA as we live very close by, and I dig the creative ways you’re using their boxes. Would you recommend them? Worth the price?

      Hey Kyle! Thanks for your comment. I actually am a member of the “core group” that runs the Forest Hills CSA, so i might be a little biased 🙂

      When it was just my wife and I, we had to split the shares with another couple because there is no way we would have been able to use all of the veg. Now that we have 2 kids, we have full fruit and veg shares, and sometime struggle under the weight of certain things (like I don’t need 3lbs of kohlrabi every week), but we make use of almost everything.

      For me, it’s all about the taste. I have not found any store bought arugula that compares to what we get from the CSA. Some goes for baby kale. Once the fruit starts coming in the summer, the berries and peaches are amazing.

      If you’re interested in joining, sign up for the mailing list. We usually have a waiting list, but if you respond quickly once the emails go out, you should have no problem getting in.
