|demonstrating my passion for food at an early age|
My name is Kim Adrian, and on this blog, I look at that mystery through the lens of art from many angles, posting descriptions of, reflections on, and ideas about food as found in literature, painting, film, music, and other forms of art. There are entries on pop songs, classic literature, fairy tales, kitch-y television ads, and Renaissance paintings. Some of the artwork I choose to post brushes right up against the mysteries of life and death, though much of it is simply amusing, beautiful, or odd.
I really enjoy hearing form readers so feel free to contact me with your thoughts, reactions, or ideas for posts. Whether you're a regular subscriber or just visiting, I hope you have as much fun exploring Food Culture Index as I have in putting it together.
