Hi! My name is Bruce, and I love food. Me and food, we go way back.   I’m not a professional chef, but I spend a lot of my free time in the kitchen.

I especially like making things from scratch.  I like to understand dishes all the way to first principles: every step of the process from farm or ranch to the table.  This blog explores food in the context of learning where everything comes from.


I’m usually wearing black, listening to goth and industrial music, and on Monday nights I can often be found at Death Guild; hence the name of the blog.
