Being half Asian and half Jewish, let’s just say that I’ve eaten a lot of mixed-up meals in my time.
Recently having rekindled my relationship with the blogging world, expect to see a lot of changes. My “new” blog will focus on coffee, food and its many dimensions (history, science, culture), travel adventures and some art and literature on the side.
Whether it’s food or coffee, I’ve come to the conclusion that my taste preferences are just plain odd: vinegar makes anything taste better (as does hot sauce), but adding sugar (or even worse, sweetener) to espresso (or anything, for that matter) makes me gag.
On the other hand, I subside on a lot of simple and bland food, like oatmeal and stir-fried vegetables.
I used to call myself a foodie, but now I’m starting to question the definition: how can I be a foodie if I sometimes choose how food makes me feel over how it tastes? I’m still learning how to achieve a balance between being an “ethical eater” and tasting everything, no matter how unhealthy/environmentally unfriendly it may be.
