I've made such singularly wonderful friends through the world of food. Any oversights herein are unintentional, but special shout-outs to Marlow Moo, The Infinite Yums, Blue Butterfly, Weird, Wild and Wonderful, Food Karma, Baconhound, A Canadian Foodie, and Food, Football and a Baby. Your culinary prowess, turns of phrase and companionship have greatly enriched my existence and enlivened my dining adventures across the city.

Writing for Vue Weekly led me Battista's Calzone Company. Long story short: interviewed Battista for Vue, became a regular customer, baked biscotti for Taste 118, and became half-owner. Since then (and "then" being early June 2011), we've expanded the menu, added interior and exterior artwork, hosted private functions, a first anniversary party, a Christmas party, and purchased a food truck (calzones to the people!). We're aiming to have the Calzonemobile on the road in May 2012.
|The beginnings of our word cloud...nothing like standing on a rickety ladder and drawing on a wall!|
I return to gratitude, since Christmas is a season of reflection for me. I am grateful for the people I've met. I can hardly wait for 2012.
