Why this blog?

My work is fundamentally inspired by food, and the people working to produce it. In parallel, as I carry out my research, I work and I eat. Am I consuming exactly what I’m researching? – sort of. I could choose many verbs to describe things that I do as part of my PhD (travel, read, talk, listen) but eating seems like a juicy starting point. So this isn’t a ‘Dear friends and family’ blog, it isn’t a travel blog, and it isn’t an ongoing thesis-in-progress, although it is inspired by a deliberation over whether to do one of those things. It is simply an exploration through food.
