About the blog
My name is Caitlin. I live and work in the nation’s capital, Ottawa Ontario. I enjoy filling my days with good food, great friends, and excellent conversation. As you can tell I consider myself to be culinarily inclined, and as such I have decided to document my ideas, recipes, and challenges for anyone who wants to listen…err read.
This blog began in January of 2011 as a gift from a friend who wanted me to feed curiosity and expand my culinary identity. As a challenge to try things, learn things, make things, and more importantly share all of the above.
I hope for the recipes I post to both inspire and encourage others to participate in the immense joy and community that can be found in sharing a meal. Food is our common ground and cooking for others, in my opinion, is an act of love. Michael Pollan once said that “the shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.”
Thanks for joining me.
