My blog has been dying a slow death the past few months (arguably, years) and instead of life support, I finally decided to put the nail in the coffin.
I’ve cooked and eaten a lot of delicious things and met a lot of great friends and connections throughout the 8+ (!) years that this blog has been around. I hope to continue to remain active in the local food community in future ventures.
