Gastronomy /gæs-tran-o-mi/: The art and science of eating and cooking that takes into account culture and a sense of place. In this case, the sense of place originates in my garden and at my table. The gardening and the cooking are done by me, Julie, an Indiana girl in Orlando. The eating is done by me and by my Puerto Rican husband and our two monsters (oops, I mean toddlers). As culinary adventuress, I will venture beyond the home front and explore the Central Florida gardening scene and exotic food culture.
