i have had this blog for 3 years now, and although julia child is a huge influence in my cooking, i started wild, fresh + tasty a few months after my dad died.


he was an artist, writer, blogger and truly enjoyed cooking. perhaps this is sort of an homage to him? i had always loved watching him in the kitchen, but what i loved most was listening to him whistle while he worked. usually he would be playing some sort of music (coltrane, dylan, vanzandt…whatevs!), and (in my eyes) moving in the kitchen like he was gene kelly.


i think he would have been the biggest fan of my blog, but also given me the most insight…in writing, in cooking, and…kicked me in the ass to post more. i miss him.
