First things first, "us" includes me, Corinne, and my husband, lets just call him Daniel. We are typical newlyweds, we got married last November and our relationship just keeps getting better. It's amazing when you have been in hum-drum relationships all your life and then you meet someone you just can't keep away from. Even sitting in a room together and doing two separate things is wonderful... Its almost pathetic really. Anyways, Daniel and I just love doing things together... anything!
It wasn't until we were living in close proximity of each other that we discovered cooking together. He has a great sense for taste and smell combinations and I have the technical know-how. We also both love the finer things in life, nights of cheese-plates and wine pairings, fondue, tapas, all that good stuff! We live pretty modestly, but you wouldn't know it, we try to scrimp and save, but we grab things up when they are at good prices... Who said college students and newlyweds can't afford fine living?
Our dream is to start a restaurant, but we are far from that and have a lot to learn. Hopefully, this blog will help us record our progress, our life together, tips on living well (even on a budget), recipes, wines and spirits, books... everything! We will give you all we know, so that you may enjoy the delights of fine living and fine food.
And of course we can't wait to meet you!
