Today, I spend most of my time cooking private dinners for my Simple-Food clients and teaching local cooking classes. The element unifying these two is my desire to make it possible for people to cook and eat well in their own homes. For Love of the Table was the natural outgrowth of all of this. Over the past few years I have written a couple of posts about why I cook, why I teach and why I write For Love of the Table. If you would like to know more about these things, here are the posts:
The beginning...my first post...why I cook
When I changed the name of my blog....why I keep a blog
My goal with For Love of the Table will always be to encourage people to really cook at home...with real ingredients and with good technique. Sprinkled throughout are nuts and bolts posts on basic (and sometimes not-so-basic) techniques which will hopefully provide the tools to do this. Most of my posts are devoted to describing recipes that I make at home for our table. Occasionally I will post recipes that I have prepared through my private dinner service...or in a class.
I test all of the recipes I post myself and make it a priority to make sure that they actually work. I want anyone who tries them to have good success so that they will want to continue to cook and feed themselves (and their families and friends) well..... In their own kitchens... Around their own tables.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you will find much to enjoy at For Love of the Table.
