THIS BLOG: My attempt at exploring and sharing my adoration and obsession with good, accessible, and ethically produced, procured, distributed and shared casual gourmet food and wine.
Here it is:
I love food. I. LOVE. FOOD. All food.
I also love wine. Oh, how I love wine. WINE!
WINE and FOOD. wine AND food. Both. So much.
Over the last year and a half however, I came across an array of information that turned everything on its head and made me really think about what I was putting on my table, into my body (the bodies of those I love), and into the Earth. Concerned with social, environmental, and animal treatment practices of the globalized food industry, I could no longer ignore the ethics involved with such, obliviously consuming everything my stomach whimmed for.
Thus, I changed some purchasing habits. Some cooking habits. Some consumption habits. And most importantly, some thinking habits.
I chose to be a conscious consumer. A political consumer. More importantly, I chose to be these things without giving up the luxury and love and fulfillment of good, gourmet food.
And so here it is. An avenue to explore and share my adventures within the context of ethical food and wine, with the hopes of hearing of yours in return.
Grab a glass (or two).......(or three).. Turn on some great music.. Talk. Laugh. Love. Eat.
