We’ve all gotta start somewhere…

… so here’s the first post on A Culinary Quest! What’s this all about, you ask? Good question. I’m not entirely sure just yet, but here’s my story…

After about a decade of climbing the ladder in corporate America, it dawned on me that no high-profile project, no big promotion, no authored article published in an industry magazine would ever be as soul-satisfying as devoting my time to culinary exploration. Not just because I love food (who doesn’t love food?), but because I’ve acquired an uncommon amount of knowledge about food and the “restaurant scene” over the years that I can share with others, presumably to their benefit.

With an insatiable curiosity of the culinary arts, I’ve dined at a different restaurant nearly every a week for over five years. Though I’m not a food expert, and am far less educated in cooking than others (like my husband who’s a culinary school-trained chef), I can offer insights into the culinary world in an unpretentious, insightful, and occasionally snarky way that should make for an interesting read. Since I’m fairly certain that an actual job revolving around culinary exploration would pay, roughly, nothing, I’ll keep my day job and begin this new journey with a simple blog.

And so begins A Culinary Quest.
