Even as FLP reps, we are not experts; merely, we too are learning. The Food Literacy Project, I feel, provides a special venue and many accessible opportunities for furthering our knowledge with food. Along the way, I have made some fun and quirky discoveries, as I have devoured the spiciest wings only to find my eyes burning when I went to take out my contacts the next day, made smoothies out of tofu, baked sweets with applesauce, ground my own peanut butter, and made teeth whitener out of strawberries. Currently, I am on my way to San Francisco to explore one of the greatest food destinations in the world. Whether it is tasting famous sourdough bread at Boudin Bakery, visiting Google’s cafeterias, or discovering why the Chinatown is world famous (I still think it won’t beat my mother’s cooking), I’m excited.
Check back on this blog often for new postings about our food discoveries, adventures, and future events. Stay tuned for future excitement in the world of food. Use this blog as a regular supplemental for a lifelong journey in food. After all, why should we believe the often quoted phrase “eat to live; don’t live to eat”? I say we “live to eat AND eat to live”.
