I grew up in a food obsessed household in Central New Jersey, and I’m most interested in how food and family and memory are connected. In a departure from my past writing, I’m gonna refocus this blog on those connections. If you’re an Astoria restaurant or shop cooking secret family recipes, if you’re an established neighborhood business trying to survive in the hyper gentrified city, if you are a new business connected to neighborhood history, and if political issues relating to the above surface, I’ll likely be covering it.
A while back, I was given the opportunity to share my thoughts about food and Astoria in the Village Voice’s Fork in the Road food blog. Check out the interview here. When not talking about food, I can be found working full-time for a non-profit doing anti-violence work, exploring New York neighborhoods on foot, or having a beer.
