Welcome to Kitchen Fiddler! I have toyed with the idea of joining the ever-growing food blog community for quite some time, and I'm thrilled to invite you to join me for tales of culinary delights and musical (mis)adventures, with chocolate-related epiphanies and a bit of time-traveling thrown in for good measure.
Many of you know that I have been working on my first cookbook for a while now. I am not a formally trained chef but I have been cooking all my life, and I have always derived great pleasure from sharing food with friends and family alike. While my cooking style has definitely evolved over the years, the idee fixe throughout my so-called kitchen career is one of continually striving to create food that is vibrant, bursting with bold joyful flavors, and infused with love. I’m talking about food that is meant to be ENJOYED with friends while lingering over great wine, conversation and laughter. I want my friends to come away from my table feeling well-taken care of and loved, and writing this cookbook is my way of being able to share these dishes that I love so much. This project is very dear to my heart, and after spending this past summer developing recipes and plugging away at the prose, I am happy to report that the cookbook is steadily coming together, slowly but surely taking shape. However, I am impatient and I feel compelled to share some of my favorite creations with all of you NOW, giving you a little preview taste of things to come.
Feel free to stop by here any time and say hello! Cheers!
