Whenever I can, I like to highlight foodies who are using their love/skills/appreciation of good food to impact their community in a fun, interesting or positive way. Part of the reason I do this blog is to celebrate the important role that food has in our lives (whether we realize it or not), and how much it can make life meaningful for us and our neighbors if we are intentional and adventurous with what we put on our tables.
Todays adventurers are our friends, Eric and Kim. Rachel and I have been getting to know them for a little while now, but apparently had no idea that over the past couple years they’ve been waging a determined war against shellfish everywhere. They invited us to their latest edition of “Crustacean Decimation” to help fight the good fight, and we did our best to thin the ranks of a few shrimp and crabs that came our way.
What it all “boiled” down to was just a fantastic seafood boil for no other reason than to have one. They invited lots of friends, they made it fun and accessible, and they cooked everything like champions. So I wanted to celebrate some friends who know how much food can bring people together.
A few pictures below, but first: do you know any foodies who deserve the spotlight? I’ve been writing about my own so far, but I’d love to highlight some of your friends and heroes as well.
