Hi, my name is Mariam Parker. I love food, wine, and craft beer. I gab about them all the time so I thought what the hell, I’ll start writing about it too!
I would say my passion for a well made meal started after watching my mom prepare for a dinner party one night, when I was around 9 or 10 years old. I remember how my mother’s face would light up with pride each time someone complimented her on one of the dishes. As one of the best cooks I know, I wanted to be just like her. Like most of us, my mother learned from testing and trying recipes, as well as from my Father, who was quite the cook! Now she mixes from memory and measures by hand. Occasionally she’ll tell a funny story about her earlier cooking days for a good laugh. I still love watching her cook.
Now, I test recipes and taste other folks’ creations. And over the years, I also developed a taste for a well mixed concoction, a good glass of wine or a brilliantly brewed beer.
