It's only taken me over a month, but the food blog is finally up and running! No matter about the late start, though, since the intent of this blog was not to have a methodical, day-by-day record of everything I consume. I hope to share some of the culinary highlights and discoveries of my time here in Florence in the form of a food-focused travel journal rather than a gastronomical log. I may organize the first few posts thematically by food type and then progress to writing a few times a week about specific dishes. Naturally, pictures will accompany the writing, and I will try to procure some of the recipes for the wonderful home cooked meals made by my host mother, Linda. Now, with all that said, let the blogging commence!
