leave your inhibitions at the door
I recently had the honor of being interviewed as part of Flavorful World’s Cool Food Adventurers series.
Usually when I read interviews, I play this little game of “How would I answer that?” In my head, I always thought that it would be easy to just rip off some clever responses and that’s that. So when Flavorful World approached me for the interview I quickly agreed, assured that all those interviews I granted in my head would be enough to carry me through.
Ummmmm…. Nope. This was hard.
The reason for the difficulty was that Flavorful World did their homework. I thought it would be some slow pitches that would be easy to knock out out of the park. But he brought the fastball, curveball, change up, forkball, and double lactate ringer. (If that’s not a type of baseball pitch, it really should be.) The questions forced me to think about how I think, write, and cook. It also brought back some very fond memories, which is always a great thing.
I hope you enjoy this and please, please, please check out the awesome interviews and other posts at Flavorful World. It’s addicting.

Every so often, I’ll come away from an interview convinced that the subject is someone with whom I could strike up a better than average friendship in real life. This interview was one of those. From our shared views on wine traditions, the ubiquity of bacon, and how parental influence shapes one’s love of food and cooking, we seem…
