I am setting forth on my cookin’ and bloggin’ endeavours this year with a purpose that’s singular (great for those with ADD needing a focal point), yet rich with diversity and flavors to keep things interesting (also great for ADDers). It’s early January and change is always possible. Yes, this means forget those early salads. What was I thinking?
Instead, I am embarking on a Holiday Feasts project, which will unite all the things I love. Food (of course), people (of course), new food-styling, photography and video opportunities, different cultures, histories, practices and food traditions, all centered around time-honored (some newer than others) festivities.
Call me an Ambassador of Food. And allow me to bring people together through their adoration of the yummy, edible stuff, and curiosity (it is hoped) about the yummy, edible traditions of others.
This doesn’t mean I’ll necessarily give up old favorites regular like the baked goodies and cupcakes and kids’ recipes. Somehow, I think there will be room for everything, in keeping with this theme of embracing the melting pot world we live in. If you prefer to be an ingredient out in the cold by yourself, you’re welcome to it. But I’ve gotta warn you, there are going to be some very exciting events and food projects on the DivaIndoors calendar this year.
First, a poll. What do you think I should name this project? Holiday Feasts? Melting Pot? Please suggest something too, in comments.
Love the idea!! Yum. Let me know if and when you get to Barbados, Panama and Germany (our joint heritage in this house). As for the name, I’ll have to think more on those… and when does this gastronomic journey begin?
you are definitely on my list of people to call! as for the journey, it has begun!
I ADORE this idea. I can’t wait. Here is a little brain storming from moi.

How about Celebratory Feasts?
Thanks Jacqueline! Feel like a kid in a candy store now!
This sounds very exciting. Too late now for Kings Day and that funny old almond-ey cake they eat in continental Europe, but I’m wondering which feast is next on the horizon.
I’m hoping to have one ready for MLK Day and next big one is Lunar New Year which may keep me busy for weeks
Looking forward to your diverse receipes!
Thanks Robert! Always grateful for your support (sorry your message was sitting in the Spam box for a while!!)
