At 23, I still claim to be a recent college grad. I’m sure I’ll be saying the same thing at 30. However, there are a few things about which I am not delusional:
- I’m guaranteed to bring up my year abroad on this blog a few times a year. It makes me feel cultured and I am fine with bragging about it all.
- I write a lot about wine, but there are roughly a thousand wine blogs out there which are better than mine. I’m a twenty-something stumbling my way through the world of wine, and I can’t keep up with the bloggers out there who have had more time to study and drink than I have.
- Despite my love of gin and tonics, I am somewhat competent at creating new cocktails- although you will see that I shake my martinis more often than not (I blame my mother).
- I didn’t realize that when I named this blog that everyone hates the word foodie. Needing to be adored by everyone I encounter, I probably would have come up with a different name had I known this two years ago. As it is, the name is staying.
On a more serious note, to me food is exciting, constantly changing, and its own art form that can continually surprise and satisfy. Some of my favorite things are duck, red wine, and all things dessert. If there’s a sticky toffee pudding or a crepe on a menu, I am guaranteed to order it. Although most of these things are fairly common foods to come across, I also love exploring foods that most people wouldn’t even think to try, such as duck hearts or lamb brain. I don’t love everything, but I will try just about anything. The only thing I’ve outright turned down was a lamb’s eyeball…but that’s a story for a different day.
Outside of food and travel, I’m obsessed with comic books, Doctor Who, Christmas, and dresses from Modcloth. You can follow me on Instagram, where I share a number of pictures that don’t end up on this blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or Pinterest.
