I was listening to the Milk Street Radio Podcast about Thanksgiving where Christopher Kimball was discussing Food media with Dan Pashman of The Sporkful. Dan says as a member of the food media he feels pressured to constantly come up with new and innovative ideas in food. I had a couple of revelations:
- If I felt like being pretentious, I could claim that I am now a member of the food media (a very insignificant member of the global scale of food media, but…)
- I currently have no pressure to do anything new, except in the case of everything old is new again.
- Sheryl of A Hundred Years Ago is on my wavelength as far as this goes.
So what’s my point? Eat what you want. Try new things. Just be you and don’t worry about it.
