Are you like me? Do you shop at several different grocery stores (including online) to get your organics, your locally grown, your artisan-made, your authentic regional ingredients? Do you read cookbooks like novels? Do you love food writing, The Splendid Table on NPR, food blogs, Cooks Illustrated, and gorgeous food photography on blogs?
And do you sometimes think that despite your genuine passion and your best intentions you might look to outsiders like a pretentious goofball?
