A few of my favorite foods to eat: oysters (brinier is better), ricotta cheesecake, t-bone/porterhouse steak, beets, whitefish salad.

And to cook: bread, smoked ribs (really smoked anything), complicated salad dressings, pasta from scratch.

So I’ll be your guide for this coming year of gourmetism and I think this blog is and will be a great resource and recipe database and compendium of everything good to eat. Read, contribute, comment, go crazy.
