From Fastfoodr to Slowfoodr
For the better part of the last year, I’ve catalogued some of the exploits of being a Fast Food Blogger. I’ve tremendously enjoyed giving you all a glimpse into the life of a fast food writer, but my tastes (in writing at least) have changed. I’ve passed the torch for Fast Food Bureau Chief to Will Gordon, and I think he’s already done a great job to spice up the column. I’m now focusing on Soda for drinks.seriouseats.com/ along with Carey Jones.
This does NOT mean I dislike fast food, as my tastes haven’t changed. (In fact, I was at Five Guys just yesterday.) I’ve always preferred sitting down to long meals, tasting bits of many things, and enjoying my food along the lines of the Slow Food movement. On top of that, in college, I was a French and Italian major, which are two regions of the world which adhere to Slow Food Principles. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to marry two passions of mine: food and romance languages. So, I will be switching to writing more about Slow Food on slowfoodr.wordpress.com
I’ll continue to post fast food related items to FastFoodr, and it will continue to serve as my main site for SeriousEats.com related posts. However, I want to begin to explore a new and different part of the food world. I hope you’ll check out the new site!
