For the Love of Food

Just in case you missed it, last week I contributed a story to PBS's Food Site. When asked to write about the connection between love and food, I shared the story of how Richard and I met and what food has meant to us and our relationship. I also included a couple of recipes and pictures that I thought would be Valentine's Day appropriate (my Beet Risotto in particular, the color alone says love) If you're looking for some last minute inspiration, be sure to stop by their site for the full feature story!

Like the rest of the food loving population, I’ve always felt there is a very thin line between love and food. Heck, I even fell in love with my boyfriend over a burger. We met at a restaurant opening in Boston and through talking to him, I learned that he had a burger blog and had gone to culinary school, something that I was trying to get up the courage to do at the time. It wasn’t long after our initial meeting that we met for a burger. I fired away questions about culinary school, he talked about how well the meat was seasoned. We instantly hit it off and agreed to meet weekly for burgers. He listened to me go on about school and my transition from life in the corporate world to life in a chef’s coat, I listened to him gripe about brioche buns. Gradually our lunches started getting longer and the conversation turned more intense, but always with food as the focus.

However you decide to celebrate this Valentine's Day, hope it's a happy one!
