Fritos and Foie Gras: The Evolution

Hi there, hungry internet friends.

Before I scare you (yeah, I flatter myself), let me assuage your fears – I am not going anywhere! Fritos and Foie Gras is here to STAY!

However, it, like so many living, breathing entities, must evolve in order to survive.

I’m ecstatic to announce that I have accepted a position at Mashable. I’m going to be working on all things food and really couldn’t be more thrilled. This is basically a dream job for me.

That means, of course, that lots of my food-oriented work will have to be focused there instead of here.

Here you are going to find a lot more hotel and travel reviews, NYC-centric events, and – of course – all of the links to my work on Mashable.

After a one week hiatus, you can count on 2-3 days of posting from me – definitely Monday and Friday.

This is an exciting step for my career and I have to thank all of you for helping me get here. When I started this blog 5 years and 5 days ago (exactly!), I only had a vague idea of what I wanted it to embody. I just knew that I loved everything about food and that I wanted to share that with like-minded people. I didn’t know how to get the word out. I didn’t know how I would ever find you or how you would find me. But the love of cheese, foreign potato chips, and heirloom tomatoes is strong, man. People found this blog and became more than mere page views or commenters – they became a meaningful component of my life. Some became dear personal friends. Some became professional colleagues. Some traveled with coast to coast with me and some have corresponded with me for ages to debate the merits of East Coast vs. West Coast egg rolls. Many  accompanied me to epic dining experiences and a few even danced at my wedding and allowed me to dance at theirs. You have been my inspiration, my cheerleaders, and oftentimes my proofreaders. You have read my opinions and brought my family’s favorite recipes into your homes. You have a huge part of my  heart – you ARE a huge part of my heart.  You have, quite simply, defined my purpose: I want to connect people through that fundamental need that we all have to share, to connect, and to break bread.

See you on Monday, 7/20 with a new hotel review.

And thank you so much for this chapter of Fritos and Foie Gras…here’s to the next one!
