If this happens to look a bit familiar, it's because it is. This is a reincarnation of a site I hostessed with friends from around the world, when I lived on the other side of the planet; it looked like this:
I hope this site can live up to my predecessor! Sadly but also happily, my former fellow writers are busy with their own lives; one prefers to write in her native Japanese; etc., so I'll be on my own, except that I'll be linking when I can with some of those wonderful linky parties of cooks all over our globe.
A new emphasis for this new site will hopefully be retro/heritage/historical cooking, which is a new interest of mine...but so new we'll have to see how that works out!
