Emerson Inspiration

A new blog for a new life. A new mantra to live by. I want to laugh and enjoy, find the best in others and leave the world a bit better. Can we do this by gathering and enjoying good food? Perhaps. I see and feel the passion most chefs have for food. You can taste it. I want to be more connected to the earth and others by buying locally and supporting local businesses. As much as I can, I want to be a part of the farm to table movement. So here I go in my own little way.

I chose "fiddlehead foraging" because of the fleeting nature that is fiddlehead season. Those who love them wait for those brief couple of weeks when their tender fronds shoot up giving us their unique, nutty flavor until the fronds begin to unfurl. Sometimes it's those seasons that allow is to live in the moment and be closer to nature. Maybe it is the wait that makes them taste so good.

I'll share my journey here as I taste life and forage for chance encounters with food, people and moments.
