If you’re anything like me, you love food. You sing and dance whenever there’s good food in the midst. If you don’t, don’t judge me because I sure do! I haven’t battled the bulge for nothing. I mean, it’s so much easier for me to tell you what I don’t like to eat as oppose to trying to narrow my list down to one particular favorite item. I often tell people that I would love to travel to Italy but just for the food. Trust me when I tell you, I am a total foodie! If you share my sentiments when it comes to good eating, then you’ll love our March series.
This month, we’re celebrating all things food on the show. No one can argue with the fact that food brings people together and it’s the source of fellowship; no matter what environment or atmosphere you’re in. We come together and break bread with one another when we’ve lost a loved one, when we’re celebrating birthdays and graduations, weddings or baby showers, and a whole host of other life events. Companies and entrepreneurs take their clients out to eat when trying to win their business. Food is one of the main common denominators.
There are entire networks dedicated to the preparation of sweet and savory treats. Entire cultures have influenced the preparation of dishes and how we celebrate various ways of life. We have family traditions that aren’t quite right when certain items are missing from the menu. Don’t even get me started on family reunions and other gatherings where someone is asking for mom’s mac and cheese or grandma’s caramel cake.
Secret “if I tell you, I’d have to kill you” recipes are passed down generations so that the perfect dish isn’t lost over time. We even take pride in teaching our children the “tricks of the trade” when it’s time for them to learn how to handle business in the kitchen. There’s no doubt about the fact that food is the bomb and there’s nothing like a good grub session with friends and family.
I do hope that you will tune in this month as we spotlight local business owners in the DFW area who facilitate our love for good eating. This is definitely a series that you won’t want to miss!
Until next time…
