I live outside of Philadelphia and have been food-obsessed for as long as I can remember.
After toying with the idea of starting a blog for a fairly long time, the extinction of a food-themed message board that I frequented for years prompted me to finally take action.
Thank you for taking the time to check out what I've been up to - and eating.

I had the great pleasure of having Haitink as my orchestra’s principal conductor. He was asked to become music director, but declined, saying he was too old for that position. We had him for four wonderful years of terrific performances and recordings. He really took the orchestra out of a very dark time into the light.
