I saw the phrase "una buona forchetta" in a book the other day. Translated from Italian, it means "a good fork,"and, when applied to a person, means that person has a vast love of and appetite for fine food. As soon as I saw that, I thought, That would be a wonderful name for a food blog.
And so here we are. I hope to use this space to occasionally post pictures and recipes of things I create in my kitchen. I came from humble beginnings as a cook-- tuna melts, omelets, and cereal were the staples of my graduate school diet, grad school being the first time I was forced to feed myself.
I am much more accomplished now. There is nothing I won't try, no recipe too daunting.
