After working as a pastry chef in Chicago and Las Vegas, I still work with food but in a different way.  I’ve left the kitchen, and now help source, purchase, merchandise and sell foods for Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, MI.  We focus on full flavored foods based on traditional recipes, and I’m happy to share their stories with the people I interact with every day.  I help organize food-based educational events, teach classes, and avidly read and learn about new foods as often as I can.  With this blog I hope to share what I’m learning with a broader audience, inspiring appetites and a desire to learn and travel in search of understanding what we’re eating and how interesting it can be.

  1. Vanessa Sly. That a random sequence of clicks led me to food blogs in Ann Arbor is not unfathomable. That the next click would be a blog penned by a fiery red headed flat mate, from a time so long ago it hardly seems like it happened at all, was pleasantly surprising.

    Nice to see your name and read something about home.

    Best Wishes, Andy Boyd
