For the last four-plus years I’ve had a biweekly column (90 in all!) in the Tribune’s food section. It’s been fun – and a great way to reach people who’d never end up here, on the blog. But it’s a bit of a chore. If a blog post kinda sucks, well hey, it didn’t costya nothin’. Going on KFRU to chat about food requires virtually no preparation – and is more fun than writing a column anyway. So my column in today’s paper will be my last. Work is taking up a lot of time, as is a new project I’ll devote an upcoming post to. As for food, I’ll stick with those outlets and promise to post here more often. It’s been sparse, I know. Finally, major appreciation goes to Marcia Vanderlip, the paper’s food editor, for giving me the platform to share my thoughts in the paper since November 2008. It’s been a good ride.
