Food Evolution

in the beginning...

Every story has a beginning. Every life a birth. Every death a story. And thus life revolves and evolves.

Evolution can be defined as “a gradual process in which something changes [to become] different and usually more complex or better” Professionally I am in no position to judge the evolution of species nor food for that matter, but personally, I have observed that as cultures change or evolve, so do foods.

With increasing contact and interaction, cultures have changed and diversified. Perhaps food diversity and evolution is as important as diversity in the natural world? While some would argue that due to globalization and mass production, that foods are losing diversity, I observe daily that the opposite is true.

This is the beginning of my story of food and the birth of my blog. I look forward to sharing with you my exciting view on the evolution of food.

Looking forward to reading more! I know that most of what we do revolves around food and cooking and that my cooking and the foods we eat have certainly evolved into something far more edible than what it was in the beginning!!

Looking forward to this blog - my cooking definately evolves - and a lot of it depends on the time I have to spend on it - in the last few years I have been concentrating on slow cooker and baking.

About Me
I started out cooking from a box or a can because I thought it was quick. It didn't take me long to learn that home cook foods can also be quick and are much healthier. Recently I've turned to organic foods for an even better tasting twist.
My favorite things to cook
The more variety the better. I love to experiment with foods from all different cultures. Because my husband is from Germany, German and Turkish foods are my specialties, with Greek and Italian tying for third.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Celebrating holidays with family is extra special. I enjoy hosting & then inviting everyone to provide a recipe to include in the meals. Once younger family members age & have new recipes of their own, I include them.
My cooking triumphs
I've created a few of my own recipes and my family and guests rave when I make them. They are my easiest recipes, yet everyone loves them.
My cooking tragedies
Upon moving to Germany I managed to destroy several attempts at banana bread before finally learning how to translate US measurements for metric.
