OK, so welcome to my new site. If you aren’t familiar with me, my name is John Moors and I ran a site called Epic Portions for years. Me and some friends of mine wrote a series of very unprofessional articles that gained a small following. Taco Bell even flew me to California to visit their test kitchen. Somewhere around 2010, the “foodie” craze was in full swing and I lost interest in documenting my love for food. It seemed like anyone with a smart phone and an opinion was starting their own food blog and critiquing restaurants on Yelp as if they were some kind of expert. I found myself reviewing different restaurants and giving my opinion as if I had any credibility at all. Side note – I did manage to start quite a revolution against Tios Mexican Cafe, which I still stand by, but other than that I have accomplished absolutely nothing that should make you respect any opinion I have about any restaurant or food in general.
That being said, I love food and I love cooking. I do have strong opinions which I feel more comfortable giving you now that I have admitted that I have zero credibility. That kind of gives me that “I can say whatever I want just don’t take me seriously”thing, which is pretty much where I want this site to be — A place where you can find entertainment in food, cooking, recipes, traveling or whatever I’m into in a given week.
There will be spelling errors, there will be opinions that you probably don’t agree with and I will probably ridicule people and places that you may enjoy. There will be bad grammar, “bad words” and I eventually plan to document the butchering of a pig. I don’t remember anything about web design so the design and layout of this will be constantly changing. I rarely eat vegetables, salads or desert. These are your warnings.
I am not a professional writer, chef or food critic. However, I do have an unhealthy love of all things food. I welcome you to take this journey back with me and see what I come up with. I have absolutely no plans on what this will become other than an ongoing journal of what I’m doing in the food world. I hope you enjoy.
