As a self-described "Norwegian Korean", I was adopted at a young age by my family. I grew up on a farm in the lush Red River Valley, moved to the City for college, found a wonderful husband and then moved right back to the country. On a few acres we garden and raise chickens and ducks. I've been told that I "eat with gusto", something that I'm quite proud of. I like to think that I drink with gusto as well. I love music of many genres and have been involved with music since a very early age. This blog is intended to be a sounding board for these things of interest: Food, Beverage, and Music - in addition to various things in life.
Very sad news that Jon Radle, executive chef at Grand Cafe, passed away unexpectedly. We had just eaten at the restaurant a couple of months ago for a Simple, Good, and Tasty event. So sad - what a talented chef who was very much into local, sustainable food. Our condolences to his family and friends.
