Welcome to my Foodie Blog! You guessed it, it is all about food (eating and cooking). I cover everything from food trucks, wine, spirits, cocktails, cooking, high-end restaurants, gastromic travel, artisan farms, and food trends. I live in Orange County, California so many of my posts are about Southern California. Although Travel is my other passion, so I regularly include “Gastromic Travel” posts whenever possible. Thank You for visiting my Food Blog and tell your friends
