Just wanted to welcome you to our new blog. We're twin sisters living in Philadelphia, near Rittenhouse Square. We're both PhD students in biomedical fields here in the city (but at different schools!). Outside of the lab, we have a great love for great food. Hailing from a small town in Florida, our primary introduction to food can be singlehandedly credited to our dad. As the chef in the house, he taught us not only how to cook, but also how to modify recipes, whip meals together on the fly, and most importantly, how to enjoy a variety of foods and flavors.
Living in Philadelphia for 5 1/2 years also has an impact on the palate. With so many amazing restaurants to try, offering so many different cuisines, new spots opening faster than you can say "Jose Garces"- we've certainly been exposed to a lot of food, mostly good. The food culture in Philly is also phenomenal- so many events, rising star chefs, but most inspiring to us, other food blogs! There's really no better way to get excited about a dish than to read about it as an experience (the pictures help too...).
Our goal with this blog is to share our experiences with food both from our own kitchen as well as from the kitchens of many fine dining establishments in this city. So to all of you who are reading, let's eat!
Edit: Please excuse the not so fantastic photography and nonuniformity of the post style- we're new to this! It will get better.
