Exciting Changes to Food And Wine Hedonist!

I’m thrilled to announce a couple changes to the blog – one I’ve wanted to do for a while, the other a relatively new development.

First the one I’m sure you’ve already noticed – the new layout. When I first started the blog, I wanted one that was clean, simple, minimalist. But it had some limitations – most obvious was the inability to have a header image or logo. With this new layout, I’m able to add a logo or image as often as I want as well as other features I’m thinking of for the future. I like this new look a lot and so did the focus group that reviewed it – Doobie and Fergie (my cats). I know, I know – the blue box with “FWH” is pretty damn lame, but at least it’s a start. If you have a graphic that you think would look pretty cool there, email it to

The more exciting news is that I’ve decided to make The Sicilian, a close friend of mine, an official contributor to this site. I’ve mentioned her quite a few times already in various posts and you may recall she wrote a guest post a few months ago on Gordon Lightfoot’s “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” It was a pretty popular post that continues to get hits every week.

So why add her? Well, because she’s been bugging me to let her post some more and I was hammered when I said yes. Because she’s a terrific writer! Unlike yours truly, she actually went to school for journalism and does it for a living. Her addition is going to bring some much-needed professionalism to this blog. And by professionalism I mean occasionally lifting this miserable blog out of the gutter of teenage boy, twisted humor that I drive it into. Don’t worry, I’m still going post some some sick, male-oriented content here, but now there’s going to be a feminine element to the blog to balance shit out. I know you’ll enjoy reading her posts.

I don't know everything about the world of food and wine, but I'm not going to let a small detail like that stop me from blogging about it.

    haha… my advice for picking up chicks with wine is to make sure they drink copious amounts of it.

    I did a post for Valentine’s Day called “Cooking to Score” and I plan on making that an occasional feature. Now, i’m probably the last person that should be giving this advice as whatever meager pick-up skills I had I put away into storage 16 years ago. But I’ll try. And if all else fails, I’ll send ’em over to your site.

    This will be fun! Check out my profile under the “About” tab in the upper left side of this page. Also, just opened a twitter account for this new blog today, @a2sicilian.

    And SocialKenny, apparently you don’t know anything about the wrath of Boom Boom.
