episode 101 :: one more for the road

I felt it was necessary to bring the show back today for two reasons – the first reason being an explanation of why I ended the show when I did in the Fall of 2012.  The second reason being to catch you up with the fallout after that day, and how my “life” as a foodie has gotten me through the subsequent days, weeks, and months that followed.

Life as a chef, a cook, a foodie, or gourmand holds weight. It grounds us. It neutralizes all of the negative things around us. It makes us whole. For me, in the months that followed my departure from this podcast with episode 100, it helped me prepare for closure. And in doing that, helped me prepare for my future life. It became, in essence, the best therapy I could have ever asked for.

I’m living that life today, and I’m here to share that with you in this episode. I’m an open book today on a day that means so much, in so many ways. This is an audio “Thank You” card to every single one of you who stood by me during a very difficult time during my “life” as a foodie.
