Today is as good of a day as any to start this new adventure and let the whole world into my life as a long time food lover and cook.  Some call themselves “foodies”, but I don’t really like that word,  a little too trendy…and what does that really mean?  Not to knock those that love that term, I just prefer to say simply that I love good food and will cook just about anything.  And I can get a little obsessive, like when looking for a piece of pork belly and ending up buying a 60 pound case!  Anyone need a piece of pork belly?  But it did make a knockout Porchetta…later on that one.  Am I sure about opening up my “food life”  for public scutiny…not really, but this is a passion that I am willing to share,  Anyway, why not!  Do what you love and love what you do…isn’t that on some t-shirt somewhere…

Last night we went with a couple of close friends to a pre-opening party for the new restauant, Cochon, in Lafayette.  Chef Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski are officially opening this coming Thursday, September 15th.  Just couldn’t be a more beautiful setting overlooking the Vermilion River.  As we walked in, we were greeted with the most cheerful waiters with trays full of samples from the menu.
