Why indeed. I suppose it all started when I was about 10 years old. My parents were good enough to take my sister and I with them on trips to Europe. After some initial culinary neophobia, I gradually came to realize that there were adventures to be had, and began to seek out the unusual, and sometimes unpronounceable, on restaurant menus. On one particular trip to France, I ordered something which we all recall being called a "segoina." I have no recollection of what it was (nor has Google shed any light in retrospect), but it was good, so much so that I had a bit of a bulging belly after dinner - which was also dubbed by my family a "segoina."
Many years later, there are still many culinary adventures to be had. As a Miami Beach resident and South Florida native, I feel fortunate to have an interesting, diverse and vibrant restaurant community here, and this blog will focus on our local dining destinations while periodically following me on ventures further afield. Please enjoy.
