So I decided to move fully into the 21st century and start a blog. As anybody who sees me can easily tell, I like to eat. But more than that, I love to cook, and can modesty say I have attained a certain level of competence with it. I particularly enjoy cooking (and eating) spicy foods. To that end, I have been pursuing knowledge and experience with a large variety of cuisines from around the world which feature hot spices in their offerings. My plan is to share my cooking experiences here on a semi-regular basis. Not all the cooking I share will be spicy, but I hope all of it will be interesting and useful. My current culinary obsession is with Ethiopian cuisine. In a couple of days I hope to be able to post a video chronicling my first efforts at making real Ethiopian injera bread from scratch. Keep your fingers crossed. 'til then, keep your knives sharp and your fingers out of the way!
