If all goes according to plan, this week the Husband and I are exploring South Africa’s wine country and getting ready to spend four days taking far too many pictures of African wildlife.
It also means my sister Kathryn is taking over the reins of this blog for the week! Some fun food facts about my sister:
- While I was busy being a “vegetarian” for the first 18 years of my life (ie, only eating bread, butter, cheese and pasta), my sister was busy developing a serious person’s palate. Kathryn was eating escargots, mussels, and paté when I was (literally) crying about having to eat my spaghetti with red sauce.
- Other than my mom, Kathryn is the only person I have ever known who can execute a recipe from Bon Appetit and actually make it look and taste the way the magazine describes it. This recipe she made, for example, is one of the best pies I’ve ever had…
- Due to years of working at her local food co-op (not to mention a few years of fairly broke living in New York City), Kathryn has an eye for making creative, hearty meals on a serious budget. Which is a good thing, as her husband now has an eye for such inventive foods as…pineapple and nectarines. Oh, and cherries.
Over to you, Kath!
