Welcome to the Green Gourmets Blog

6 Dec

Hello (moms, husbands, and our 2-3 closest friends)! Thanks for visiting our blog.

What is this all about anyways and why are we blogging?

We (L & K) are two friends who met in high school in Atlanta, Georgia.  While we didn’t know each other well then, we met again a few years ago in a chance run-in at a yoga studio in Columbia, South Carolina.  We realized we had a lot in common, particularly our love of good food, creating amazing meals and sharing them with friends, and drinking delicious wine.  But we are not millionaires . . . yet, so we try to eat and drink well on a budget.  We favor local, in-season ingredients when possible because they tend to be the most flavorful and nutritious.  We hope this blog will be able to provide tips on where to find local ingredients without breaking the bank.  To us, eating “green” means finding food that has not been trucked all over the country (or flown half way across the globe) and that is free from chemicals and pesticides that harm the earth.

We hope you will enjoy this blog as a resource for ideas and recipes of your own.  We welcome you to share with us and to request posts on a particular subject or theme.  Professional chefs we are not – we just thought it would be fun to document our progress as amateur cooks.  We will, from time to time, post highlights of a meal we’ve had out at restaurants.  We are also not professional restaurant critics though (but wish we were) and so will refrain from any negative reviews.

The Green Gourmets blog is officially open for business! Come back soon y’all!
