Happy New Year, Everyone! 2010 was an amazing year of food, and I’m looking forward to more in 2011. Last year was about learning. This year, is about teaching others what I’ve learned, and I can’t wait to get started.

I’ve teamed up with our local grocery store and library to sponsor a series of free cooking classes for the community. I was also humbled by an offer to become part of the board of directors for our local Slow Food Chapter; I excitedly accepted and started the new year as the vice president of communications. Through Slow Food, I hope to spread the word, further than my blog, about eating locally, responsibly and how important it is to cook from scratch for your families and your customers.

I’m also hoping to start my cook book this year. I’ve been talking about it for years, but this year is the year for doing and teaching; so this year, my goal is to get past the table of contents.

What are your food goals for 2011?
