Saveur Days began with the idea of recreating recipes from Saveur, a culinary magazine featuring recipes and fabulous food styling. Until someone from MIT or NASA figures out, I thought, how to manufacture and market Star Trek’s replicator, I would have to cook, saute, bake, boil, broil, grill, filet, pound, whip, blend, mix, sift, separate, fold, kneed, pinch, shake, stir, pour, ladle, toast, crush, powder, sprinkle, steep, brew, measure, fry, stew, braise, scoop, chop, dice, slice, mince, julienne, grate, drizzle, spray, flip, shake, rattle and roll out, roll up, and rock ‘n’ roll myself. And what better guide to starting a good blog than with the guidance of one of my favorite culinary magazines?
The blog’s concept has evolved, however. Moving to Boston from Toronto, earning my graduate, meeting and marrying my husband and most recently having my baby, have all catapulted me from salad days and girlhood to Saveur Days and grown to encompass other aspects of my non-Salad, very-Saveur days, most importantly my life with my son.
So welcome to my Saveaur Days. Hopefully you’ll find something of interest that you can relate to, commiserate with, and eat up vicariously.
