THE BLD PROJECT IS:
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, it’s not as much a diary of what I eat (for every meal) so much as it’s a reflection on why, where and how I eat: at home, including cooking projects and easy original recipes; food inspiration and cultural stories; as well as food discoveries in Brooklyn, greater New York City and beyond.
I absolutely love to travel: I live by the motto “Always have the next trip planned.” In 2014, I covered ground in 14 destinations, including Philadelphia, Stockholm, Barcelona, Ibiza, Paris and the mountain town of Julian, California. In 2015, I made it to a total of 18 destinations, including Guadeloupe (French West Indies), Minnesota, Aspen, Nashville, San Francisco and San Diego.
2016 is shaping up to be a banner year with trips planned to Chile in April, the U.S. Virgin Islands in May, Tanzania in June, Bordeaux in August, a return in the fall to the U.K., plus stops along the way in Copenhagen, Oslo, Paris and Reykjavik on the calendar (so far).
I’m so excited to share my journey. Welcome to my epic epicurean adventure!
