A Couple of Tarts

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf. ~ Epicurus

Introducing Dora & Karen - A Couple of Tarts...

I am the last person to start a blog. I have a healthy dose of computer phobia and in my 33 years I have been unable to keep a journal. The idea of a diary was always appealing--beautiful little book with lovely paper that contained my profound thoughts and momentos. It wasn't until I moved to a small, Southern town that I rekindled my desire to write down my thoughts. After living in the Bay Area and NYC, I now find myself adjusting to a very different life. The one thing that hasn't changed is my love and passion for baking and cooking. I have tried to quit the restaurant industry and find a "real" job, but a civilian life is not for me. I am happy to share this blog with my friend Karen who has shared so many food experiences and adventures with me. I hope you will enjoy my perspective on food and travel and the people, sounds, and sights that I will discover.

Like Dora, I also trace my culinary roots back to the Bay Area. In fact, it seems Dora and I lived parallel restaurant lives for a bit while working in San Francisco. Looking back, I think it was inevitable that we would eventually meet and work together here in NYC. Our California-centric dicussions during my first few months on the East Coast definitely eased my transition into New York living, while at the same time annoying a few of our native NY coworkers (oh, well). I also quit the restaurant industry, but I don't think it will be getting me back like Dora Instead I rediscovered my passion for food and cooking now that I don't have to make creme brulee every day of my life. My other passion is to travel and the two go perfectly together. Our hope is that this blog gives Dora and I a chance to share and discuss our discoveries with each other and with our friends.
