An abbreviation for the Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Project, which launched in March 2009 as a 3x daily blogging endeavor organized loosely by posts on what I ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. After churning out that many posts a week, on top of a full-time job, The BLD Project took a hiatus in 2011 — and since relaunched in 2015 in its present incarnation.

Today, The BLD Project is not an everyday food diary but vignettes from my travels, some cooking projects and easy original recipes, and food discoveries and inspiration in Brooklyn, greater New York City and beyond. In The White Album, Joan Didion famously wrote, “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” The BLD Project is a part of my story, specifically my food stories, (and wine and spirits, too), because food isn’t just about sustenance. It’s a means to explore, discover; to get to the heart of a culture; memories, realizations, a shared connection and many delicious bites, of course. Food stories are human stories, and the best ones are full of heart and soul.

Welcome to my epic epicurean adventure!

xoxo Erin

  1. I was just plain tickled to see my (very humble and impromptu) appetizer spread on my computer screen. You write so well that even plain food sounds fascinating.
