My name is Esther. I went to college for theater. Mere weeks after graduating I realized that theater was not the right career choice for me.
Go figure, right?
In the last semester of college, I developed an interest in food history and anthropology. Fun story: that interest was ignited by a theater class.
Double go figure, amirite?
So I started this blog to give myself the opportunity to share my passion with you. My hope is that you’ll find it informative and fun and possibly even the greatest thing you’ve ever seen.
Things about me:
-I work in higher ed on the admin side of things. Current location: Wharton at UPenn.
I’m getting my Masters in Education. I’ll begin I began the Masters in Gastronomy program at Boston University in Fall 2014. I’m hoping to graduate this summer (finally).
-I consider myself a folklorist. A Foodlorist if you will. I’m looking into that path through a possible archaeology PhD.
-I love Photoshop.
-I’m also a public historian, and I volunteered for a long time at Old Sturbridge Village, acting as an costumed interpreter of hearth cooking. I’m very passionate about museums as well.
I’m getting married in August 2013 and I’m absolutely freaked out. I got married in August 2013 and absolutely nothing changed.
-I had a baby on September 1, 2016. She caused great upheaval in my life, but I love her dearly.
-I ice skated for 8 years, then I turned into a teenager and quit.
-This is my favorite painting.
Keep eating and asking, my friends.
