Sometimes when I write about food, it is much more in a “telling” then “reflecting” voice. My goal is making my primary blog a place where where food can be available, but not where the food prevents the story from unraveling in a natural way. (If I have to put, “Do this, then do that.”, it cripples my ability to be creative and just let something fly out through my fingers.)
As we have had our exchange students or as we have experimented with various cuisines, I sometimes felt like I could not produce something for the blog that was consistent in style with the previous post. So, now the esoteric food stuff can reside here safely away from anything that might be more interesting to a general audience.
