Last September, after talks with the editor of the UK, the newspaper of the University of Groningen, I started writing a fortnightly food column for them. I suggested we call this column “The Epicurean”, she agreed, and the first piece was published on September 16th, 2011. Today, after a year’s worth of columns, I decided it was time for a refresh of the design of the Epicurean page on this site. Have a look.
I have been wanting to get into food writing for a long time now, but somehow never felt the need; the time and place was never right. This changed this morning when the first article of a new food column for the University newspaper was published. The column is called The Epicurean and will be published once a fortnight. At least that’s the plan for now.
I’m certain that the news has reached you, no matter where you live, dear reader: Groningen is Hoofdstad van de Smaak for 2011! For those not blessed with the ability to understand Dutch, it means that Groningen is the Capital of Taste for this year. I can tell you’re a bit confused (if not bemused), so let me try to explain.
