Goodbye, and Good Eating

Well, I haven’t posted anything in quite some time due to the forces of the outside world draining all life force and time from me … but I do want to say goodbye to everyone whose path I’ve ever crossed here on TrueSlant. We’ve had some uproarious debates — mostly about food on my page — and many laughs. This site is also where I trudged through the most gut-wrenching writing I’ve ever attempted, and I will always remember and be grateful for that. 

The group of writers and readers here really are/were a part of something special.

Thank you to Lewis for being the man with the plan, and Coates for trying his best to keep me writing even when the universe wouldn’t permit me to.

I hope to bump into you all, virtually or not, very soon. And yes, pancakes still suck.

    About Me

    Oysters. Bone Marrow. Spanish hams. Fish tacos. Shanghai soup dumplings. Sea urchin. Summer tomatoes still warm from the sun. There, my favorite foods are out of the way. To cut to the chase, food is in my genes. My father, grandfather and great grandfather were butchers. I've cooked for fun and pay since I can remember, helping out at my dad's catering company/butcher shop and eventually the catering wing of Zagat's highest-rated restaurant in the country (you've never heard of it). Why am I not a chef or caterer? I'm just too much of a pansy. I didn't want the hours/heat/instability to ruin my love for cooking, so now it's pure recreation. Since ditching the chef idea, I've written for many major news networks and magazines, spanning everything from a blood-soaked Marine invasion into Fallujah to Britney Spears' underwear (lack of, actually) to properly sourcing pork. I hope to share the deliciousness of life with you. Also, pancakes suck.
