What is the difference between a foodie and someone who just really loves to eat out? Meal memory. The ability to recall the buttery marbling of a steak or the subtle spice of a Moroccan-inspired custard at the pop-up of the season. A foodie can describe how the crunchy jicama relish brightened up a street taco they had at a food truck on vacation in Central America.
These meals haunt a foodie. Keep them up at night, inspire grocery lists, and dominate conversations.
A foodie never forgets.
It is for this very reason 'Restaurant to Real Life' was born!!
My hope is that Restaurant to Real Life will inspire you to take on cooking projects, travel, or even order something different off of a menu. Oh, and bring some very amazing dishes into my home, and yours.
Maybe you will be compelled to pick up a new kitchen gadget, experiment with an ingredient, or discover the cuisine of a country in a different corner of the world.
