folk & palate is a platform where I curate the connections between the human story and the power of food. You don’t have to be food enthusiasts to find common ground at f&p. Here, I’m doing things a bit different! You won’t find food reviews, and I’m not hopping from city to city in search of the newest, trendiest restaurant or local dive. There are plenty of amazingly talented people out there doing that work. At f&p, I’m curating the stories behind the food, the people, the history, the ancestry…the connections, because truly, without the stories, food is nothing more than nourishment. Look, food will not rid the world of it’s problems, but just ride with me and I will show you that it is a much more powerful medium than most give it credit, and maybe, just maybe, it will make the world a bit of a better place for us all.
