Delicata Curry

Adventures with food and becoming a chef. That’s what the tagline says, but I haven’t talked much about school since the julienne practice session with carrots. Sometimes I’ll start out a post with stories about class, then decide that it’s irrelevant and too long-winded, so I end up cutting the whole thing. Today, I’d like to shine…

Thank you!

Thank you, to my best friend Stephanie for my beautiful new logo! You are the best and I love you <3

Sweetly Spiced

It’s officially stick season here in Vermont, which means the leaves have all dropped and the bare trees are waiting for the cool embrace of winter’s snow to adorn their limbs.

Five Tastes of Fall

It’s been a while since I posted about a full meal. I’ve been wanting to make this dish ever since my grande fig adventure, but I had trouble locating all the ingredients. I didn’t think it would be very difficult to find pork loin roast, but something that sets our local co-op apart from the…

See you tomorrow!

Anden and I are visiting family is Southern Vermont this weekend for a cider squeeze! I’m currently working off of my phone’s data plan, so I will return tomorrow with a full update, recipes and all!

It Has Begun

I have officially survived my first week at culinary school. Orientation for the New England Culinary Institute began last Tuesday, and Friday morning, I had my first class in the kitchen.

One Fig, Two Fig…

Earlier this week I promised you a story. My adventures to find fresh figs began when we moved to Vermont almost a month ago. Figs are in season from Summer to Fall and as we were preparing for our move, I was buying fewer fresh and perishable foods and tried to go through as much…

Pumpkin Spice Martini

This weekend is a bit of a short post, but fret not, I will return a little later this week. I came down with a bad stomach bug last weekend that kept me mostly in bed this past week. The meal ideas I’ve been playing around with in my notebook were a bit too heavy…
