I noticed you note the weather and what you’re listening to on your blog posts. I’ve never seen this before. Why do you do this?
I note the weather because weather is one of the primary dictators of what we eat. We eat according to the seasons and according to what’s in season. We almost always consider the time of year and the weather outside when deciding what to eat, whether consciously or subconsciously (like when we get a craving).
I tell you what I’m listening to because food is about so much more than food; it’s about the atmosphere in a home or place. It’s about all five of our senses. If you smell sugar cookies and hear Christmas music, suddenly you are transported to a special, unique time and place. When we take all of this into account, then we’re not just in the business of passing along good recipes, but rather in the business of cultivating and documenting food memories.
