This blog, contrary to what you might think, is not really about free food. In August 2009, I started the FreeFoodBoston Twitter feed to let people know about free food in Boston. I had wanted to start a food blog for several years. I love food and I wanted to be able to document and share the noteworthy things I ate. In May 2010, I finally started my blog, but lacking a specific title that really called to me, I decided to use my existing Twitter name.
FreeFoodBoston is a chronicle of my foodie finds. I have an oversized sweet tooth (see: CupcakeCamp), so I post a lot of desserts. Nice restaurants are fun, but I would just as often choose a good sandwich at a charming cafe and bakery. I love to share lesser known places that maybe you’ve never heard of. I attend and write about as many foodie events as I can, and thankfully there are lots of those in Boston. I love traveling and reporting on all of my food finds wherever I go. I grew up in New York City, which instilled in me my foodie nature. I go back there fairly often and post about what I eat. I don’t cook or bake nearly as often as I wish I did, but when I do and I think it is worth photographing, I’ll write about it.
I fell in love with farms and farming in high school. I fought for more locally grown foods in the dining halls in college. For a time, I wanted to be a farmer. I spent three of the best months of my life working on a farm in Italy. For now, I satisfy my agricultural cravings by visiting farms and farmers’ markets. One of the best parts about Boston is that you do not have to travel far outside the city to get to a farm.
And that’s my story. In short, I like eating food and talking about it. If I can share a place or a food with you that you didn’t know about before and that excites you, then I have done my job.
