Food, glorious food. It is the bane of our waistbands; the scourge of our hunger. In it, we may find satiation and friendship. The culinary adventure can be a physical exploration of New York, or a mental expansion of boundaries and flavors. In some food, we may even find respect.
Our authors possess different tastes, and accordingly, address food differently. Some prefer literary exegesis to memorable stories. One chooses to blog, while another serves ramen. We hope that you, reader, find their writings palatable.
Chew it over.
