More About Me
Welcome to Culinary Distractions. Yes, I am fascinated by food on every level—from its cultivation, marketing and preparation, to the endless ways that it is shared and consumed.
After many years of being away, I am back living in the fertile Willamette Valley of Oregon. I’ve returned with a deeper appreciation for those living closest to the land: the home growers and small farmers who hold vigil over our food supply. I also returned to college to brush up on sustainability matters and stayed to receive a BA from the University of Oregon in Humanities with a Food and Culture focus. It’s never too late to learn, especially when it concerns food.
Thanks for visiting!
About the Blog Banner
The banner represents a slice of food history in Eugene, Oregon. The mural stands tall over the legendary Growers Market, a cosmic institution in the heart of the downtown area. The not-for-profit food buying club is run by dedicated volunteers who have furnished organic and natural foods to the community since 1971.
