Gourmet Cupid

This is an idea I’ve had for a while: I was saving it for Valentine’s Day, but the holiday season seems just as appropriate. What is it you ask? Well you may not know this, but pinned to my shoulders are tiny wings: I am your Gourmet Cupid, here to make all your romantic dreams come true.


What am I talking about? Ok, so it’s safe to say that all of you reading this blog like food. A lot. And many of you, despite your better qualities, are single. Hey, I can relate. So in this age of healthnuts and gyms it’s hard to find a fellow foodie to fall in love with. Hence the birth of Gourmet Cupid, here to help match you with a potential mate.

How does this work?

Well I’ve created an e-mail address: gourmetcupid AT gmail DOT com. To participate, simply send me an e-mail with the following information:



Location: [please be a little specific here. “New York” is too broad; “New York City” is just right.]


Sexual Preference:


Favorite Foods:

Anything Else About You:

The Type Of Person You’re Looking To Meet:

Attach a recent picture of you too, cause we’ll use that later should we pair you up.

I’ll keep checking that gmail account and if I get e-mails from two people, with lots in common, living in the same city I will e-mail them both and tell them they’ve been tapped by the Gourmet Cupid. They will then have the option of e-mailing the other person and going on a Gourmet Cupid Date which, of course, they will have to document with a digital camera and write about afterwards.

Isn’t this fun? Won’t it be great if we have an Amateur Gourmet wedding?! I feel like Alicia Silverstone in “Clueless.” [Note: I am not responsible if you get murdered on your date.] Let’s see those e-mails pour in!
