BUILDING THE SUNDAE
My passion for food is interconnected with my studies in business, marketing, and psychology at the University of Richmond.
As I explore cultural and sensory values of food, I seek ways in which these culinary experiences relate to marketing. I admire business platforms dedicated to integrity - in both their service and communication strategies.
This online platform is place for me to learn, as I pursue career opportunities that focus on augmenting authentic consumer experiences.
To friends, family, and other witnesses, my crafty culinary mannerisms are unmistakable:
Concocting unexpected dining hall creations
Photographing food, everywhere
Tasting one too many flavors at ice cream shops
Soliciting bites of friends' meals at restuarants
REAL FOOD, REAL FLAVOR
I don't obsess over where my food products come from, but I see great value in cooking with wholesome, fresh ingredients. The closer to the ground the better - in regard to taste, texture, and nutritional value.
MY PALATE ENVY
I crave artful menu items, cultural culinary traditions, and innovative recipes made with real, wholesome ingredients.
My taste palate is curious, and I envy individuals well-versed in cuisine.
I don't consider myself an excellent cook or a gastronome by any means -- at least not yet. Like anyone else I have my strengths and weaknesses in the kitchen. My mission is to taste, experience, and learn.
I am an aspiring connoiseur, an epicurean.
Welcome to my digital food journal!
Palate Envy serves as a creative platform for archiving and sharing my experiences, as I taste and explore the craft of cooking.
Please enjoy the recipes, restaurant reviews, and pictoral archives of my epicureal adventures.
Let's cook innovatively, taste exceptional flavors, and savor meaningful memories with great people - Prost!
As a native-born Wisconsinite, I was raised with an appetite for good cheese and an appreciation for all things local and homegrown.
As a kid, I knew our family's hen house and vegetable garden simply as a matter of fact.
But since moving to college, I've grown to appreciate the humble luxuries that surround small-town lifestyle. I didn't realize the extent to which day-old eggs surmount 30-day-old store eggs until store-bought became my only option.
