It's time to reclaim this blog.
To pull it back from the brink of only-the-previously-published and use it as a creative outlet for my cooking and wild food adventures- rather than as a portfolio of published work.
For the other stuff drop by janedegraaff.com and click on the portfolio link.
From here on in these pages are dedicated only to the adventures that I don't write about professionally- or those aspects of the adventure that don't get an airing in conventional press [like the post about how deer hunting made me feel]. There has been much overlooked in the melee of deadlines and I would like to begin to rectify this- after all, sometimes the unofficial version is so much better.
The things I have failed to comment on thus far are:
How I feel about substituting almond meal when a Korma recipe calls for pistachio. And what magnificent results is can yield.
The effects of cramming a bunch of multicultural shopping into four days with friends.
And what happens when you match coffee and cheese- with a wildly high temperature and a bout of the flu.
But suffice to say that people get derailed from time to time- even by the good stuff.
I say back on the tracks people- and let the redirection begin.
