In spirit of starting a graduate program in journalism (at dream school of mine, UC Berkeley) I’m adding a new type of post to this blog. My hope is that highlighting the happenings in food and restaurant news from other sources will serve two purposes for me as a student and new reporter. The first goal is for this to allow me to supply fresh content when I’m overworked and don’t have the time – or remaining brain power – to write my own words and, secondly, that it will help me keep with the newly encouraged practice of scouring the news and staying in the know of a certain topic of interest, also known as a ‘beat.’
It so happens that the beat I like the most has to do with beets.
So far, I’ve only posted my own content on this blog – my words and my photos. But there’s so much inspiration to be found in other people’s passions, creativity and talents as well. The photos and stories in Andrew Knowlton’s Top Ten Restaurants of 2015 are beautiful expressions of just that. They’re love stories, they’re success stories, they’re inspiration for decoration and for lifestyle, and… for travel directly to their location.
PS – It may appear that I had no time for blogging this summer even while I was not yet overworked by a masters program. This is the case because I was traveling and discovering all there is to do, see and eat in this lovely state of California. Epic blog post to come, you’ll thank me eventually.
