Well, the day has arrived; I have finally started a food blog! For anyone that knows me, this endeavor will not come as a surprise. I live for food. It is my favorite thing to talk about, in depth, all day long. The subject brings me to life, and now it is time to share with you all.
I have been struggling for weeks with the “perfect 1st blog post”, following the mantra ‘you only have one first impression’. This got me thinking to my time living in England and how the second you walk into someone’s house they offer you ‘a cuppa’, which is simply a cup of tea or coffee. It is such a simple gesture; offering someone a cup of something.
So on that note I am going to begin with a cup of coffee; this gorgeous elixir from the gods that fuels me daily and is something I cannot live without (I tried and it was disastrous).
When it comes to coffee I have learned that there are very few establishments that can make a cup worth spending $6 on. Like everything else in life, if you want something done right just do it yourself (and there is no line and no one spelling your name wrong on a cup!).
This brings me to the greatest $30 investment ever- The Aeropress. How it works is the coffee grinds are steep for 30-45 seconds and then you press the plunger down (this takes some effort), the coffee is plunged through a micro filter with the help of air pressure giving you a smooth yet robust cup of coffee.
OK, now that we have gotten coffee out of the way I will now focus on food and the occasional cocktail. Enjoy!
