So I stand at the crossroads...

So this blog was created as part of my assignment requirements for Journalism and Electronic Media 422 at UT. Now that I have graduated, and still have this blog to my Google account, I have decided to still make use of it. Though I did debate with myself on wither or not I should delete this. Anyway...

With that being said, I feel it's only fair to let you in on what you'll be getting yourselves into when you read. I am an aspiring food writer, or that's the life-long goal of mine as I have leaped into the magazine industry. It wasn't easy to graduate on a rainy Sunday afternoon and begin working full-time the following Monday morning. There's not a lot of time to transition your entire life routine, but I'm making it work. But that's not what I want to talk about on here...this isn't going to be a "reflect on my life and what I've done each day" kind of discussion. Though I may refer to myself or events of my past, that will not be the focal point. I can only imagine your sigh of relief...


Rather, I want this to be an experiment for myself on food writing. So hang with me on this one. I'm not going to claim to be Julia Child or Emeril Lagasse, Thomas Keller or Masaharu Morimoto by any means or capacity. (Though I have worked with Thomas Keller and have eaten at Morimoto's restaurant in Tokyo...maybe I'll tell those stories another day.)
I want to dig into a paradigm, ingredient or cooking method for a certain meat, for example, and see what I can do with it. Both in the kitchen and with my words. While it may be a recipe for a disaster, we will just have to see. The rest of my Subway sandwich is calling me...lunch break is almost over. That's all for now.

well, I'm glad you're back. I thought you had fallen off the face of the earth. ;) Congrats on graduation!
