The New & Improved Amateur Gourmet

It’s 7:45 AM and I can’t contain it anymore. I laid in bed last night, jittery and nervous, anxious and excited. In just a few hours the new version of my blog, the blog I’d been writing for the past six years, would be launching. And now–standing before you in all its glory–is the new & improved Amateur Gourmet.

Don’t ask questions yet, just absorb the beauty and the brilliance of Raphael Brion’s vision. Got it? Ok, now for some explanation. There are three things to be very excited about here.
