Hi and welcome to my food blog!
My name is Dahlia. I’ve been aggressively into food since I was two years old, standing on a chair “helping” my mom with dinner, and here we are, 23 years later.
Food has always been everything to me. I plan every trip I go on around where I’ll eat. For every city I’ve lived in, I’ve kept a long list of every food place I’d like to return to. I love how food can connect people and shape whole relationships and experiences. I’ve worked in half a dozen restaurant kitchens, and becoming a chef was my life plan until about two years ago. I’ll get into that whole crisis some other time.
I’ve written about food in Comestible Journal, Eater Montreal, Graphite Publications, The Main Montreal, Honeypot Magazine, and my Notes app, and I knew that one day the time would come for me to take the plunge and just start my own blog.
I grew up in Toronto, moved to Montreal to attend McGill University, spent my whole third year of university in Barcelona, and then returned to Montreal to finish school and then work for two years after graduating.
In 2016, I was lucky enough to be the food and drink columnist at CBC Montreal Daybreak, which means that every other week, I was on the radio at 7:40am chatting with host Mike Finnerty about great things to eat and drink.
Now, I live in East Boston and just finished my journalism graduate degree at Emerson. I’m looking for opportunities in Boston where I can produce stories about social justice, art and culture, and of course, food.
On this site, I’ll be including recipes, rants, restaurant lists and reviews, city guides, and probably anything else that I feel like writing down. I’m Mexican-Jewish-Canadian and I love Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Portuguese, and Spanish cuisines as much as my own cultures’ food- so there’s gonna be a whole bunch of different kinds of things to eat.
Lastly, be sure to throw me a Like on the blog’s Facebook Page, so you’ll see whenever I post my articles or clips right in your Facebook feed.
This is exciting!
Thanks for reading!
