My New Digs

You say yes, I say no
You say stop and I say go, go, go
Oh, no
You say goodbye and I say hello

-- "Hello and Goodbye", The Beatles

I've often been told that one journey leads to another, and while I'm still relatively young in life, and don't have much life experience compared to so many others out there in the great wide world, I've certainly had my number of journeys and experiences. This new adventure has led me to depart Forks & Chopsticks, my former haunts that I shared with my brother and which first introduced me to the world of food-blogging, and set up my own page, one that is solely mine. Call it a break from the past, a step towards independence, looking forwards to the future... Whatever it is, I'm simultaneously excited and anxious about this new endeavour. Hopefully this will be a stepping-stone to stretch my food-loving fingers and mind in an opportunity to explore new foods, new recipes, new stories and new experiences.

For me, food is a kind of therapy. Whenever I’m down, bored, happy or sad—regardless of however I’m feeling—I know that I can always turn to food as a mood-booster. It helps me clear my mind when I’m stressing over something, and being a goal-oriented kind of person, I feel like I’ve achieved something at the end of the day when I serve up a dish. Furthermore, I've always been comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings through the written word, and this is an opportunity for family, friends and hopefully, new acquaintances, to get to know me through my passion for food.

Lastly, a quick note on the title of my blog. If one has absolutely no knowledge of the French language, the title literally translates to "good eats," a reflection of my own desire to seek out mouth-watering culinary creations and the likes. It's also a play on my name that my Italian literature class used to refer to, a joke that I honestly didn't fully comprehend until a friend (literally) spelled it out for me. Not for a lack of intelligence mind you; more like slowness in the head!

I'm excited about where this food blog will take me in the coming months: delicious food, new products, successful and failed attempts—essentially the good, the bad, and even the ugly of all things culinary. I'm by no means a professional. I merely possess a purely unadulterated love for food, and hope to share that passion with the rest of you!
