Cook, Eat, Write… Day One

This is all Tom Kohler’s fault. At a friend’s Christmas party, we were talking about food and he insisted that I start a food blog to hold all my thoughts, theories, recipes and discoveries about food in Savannah and the Low Country.

And here we are. It’s the day after Christmas and I’ve registered the domain, set up email (kevin@cookeatwrite.com), and am sitting here writing this while everyone else sleeps off all the turkey and ham from yesterday.

We’ll see how things go, but here’s what I plan on doing here:

  • Writing about everything food-related. I’m thinking of this as everything from producers to consumers and all the stops in between. I’m fascinated by where our food comes from, how we can become small-scale producers in our own backyards, and how we can do a better job of being mindful of where our food comes from. I also love to cook and eat, so there will be some recipes, some restaurant reviews and some tips on where to find people making or providing interesting things in Savannah. For example, did you know that there are at least three great Asian grocery stores in Savannah? Well, there are!
  • Recipes for everything from BBQ to desserts. I can’t stay out of the kitchen and trying new things. I’ve made Momofuku Ramen twice – the new version and the old version. I’m addicted to trying pie and bread recipes, and sometimes come up with my own twists on them. This is where I’ll share those.
  • Interviews with local producers, providers and chefs. I’ve never done interview like that before, but there are a lot of really interesting people doing amazing things here and I’d love an excuse to pick their brains.
  • Links to cool food things to do.

I’m not sure what the publishing schedule will be yet, but I expect I’ll have something to say at least once a week.

I hope you’ll come along for the ride!

Thanks for reading,
