I just found out that I write a "cheese sandwich" blog. A recent article written by Pete Wells of "Food and Wine" magazine sought to take a look at the world of food blogging. The result is, in my opinion, a strange and lopsided article that misses out on many many aspects of food blogging.

Many things about the article bothered me. The way he chose to pick on specific bloggers by quoting their words out of context is just so mean and small-minded. His forceful words "Nobody cares what you ate for lunch" suggests that somehow people who choose to blog about everyday, simple food are inferior to those who choose to write edgy, dramatic food blogs. What do you think?
Me, I love my "cheese sandwich" blog. Or shall I say my "dal-chawal" (beans and rice) blog. I shall continue to try and blog about more tasty, nutritious, affordable, accessible, sustainable, wholesome food.
Join me for a cheese sandwich!
Thick slices of fresh sourdough bread...spread with butter, then stacked with slices of fresh tomato and green peppers, blanketed with shredded aged cheddar and a sprinkling of pepper and grilled till melty...mmm....
