Faithful readers, cooks, strangers, welcome to the new design!

I wanted Donna’s photography to stand out so we toned down all the color (above, I was dicing onion week before last for an easy, midweek coq au vin preparation— love the light she got on that onion!). I also hope to bring in new readers, so I made the social media prominent on the right and will be sending out a newsletter to those who are interested in additional material. I hope the blog will be easier to read, have a more consistent in look, with no more Kraft salad dressing ads in the left column next to the post!  There will be more smaller changes in the future, but this is the big one, master minded by designer Joe Watson (thanks Joe!) and engineered by Stephen Jenkins, both working out of my beloved city.

What won’t change is the content: as the above photograph implies, I write about and discuss basic technique, fundamental cooking principles, food news and opinion, great photography, and occasionally letting off steam.

As always, all comments are welcome!
