In April of 2009 food blogs were still the new big thing and many (including this one) more resembled basic diaries with photos than the stylized food-zines many have become. Wander, Eat, and Tell began when I was a teaching assistant to the man who was often credited with being the father of food blogging,Continue reading “Honoring The Past”
No wandering or writing gets done without coffee. If I’m going to get back on track after my technical difficulties on Friday night I need a bit of fuel. Despite the ongoing trend of specialized lattes, high-tech espresso, and myriad of other complicated (and expensive) coffee drinks, I still prefer the old-school NYC diner coffeeContinue reading “Morning Coffee”
I’ve been taking a class at ICC called The Craft of Food Writing with the infamous Alan Richman. We are nearing our last class and today was my private one-on-one critique session.

In the past week I started taking a couple of new classes, feeding my lifelong addiction to education.

I’ve never been to the Caribbean, though I hope that will change sooner than later. I do, however, live in a place where the rich tones ofContinue reading “Island Life”
Actually, now Maria is in a small village near Kyoto. She and her partner are staying in a very traditional lodging (I do not have the Japanese terms available to me right now-sorry!)… While on the property, they wear special robes and shoes (if any), eat traditional style meals, and sleep on tatami mats separated fromContinue reading “Guest Blogger: Maria’s in Tokyo, part 2”
I may not be able to do any traveling at this time, but I can always rely on my sister’s business to take her someplace exciting on a regular basis. And, I can always count on her to report back with some fabulous food finds along the way! Maria left for Tokyo yesterday. When IContinue reading “Guest Blogger: Maria’s in Tokyo, part 1”
