I'm looking forward to her Foodlist. I have complained before about her reviews of restaurants whose prices are way out of line for me, in my price range, and many others as well, I'm sure, but I realize she is writing for all of us, the rich as well as middle class citizens like me. I have yet to dine in a Michelin rated restaurant, but my lady friend and I have been on a mission for several years...to go out to dinner once a month and try a new restaurant every time and ones that offer foods from different countries and ethnicities from around the world. It's been a fun venture/adventure and experiment. We've got 21 of them under our belts (pun intended) so far, and there are still many left. I haven't found a Swedish (my heritage) restaurant locally...gotta got to SF for one, or maybe buy a plane ticket to Minnesota. I have a hunch I could find one, maybe two, or maybe many more, there.

I've lived in PA since 1961 and I've seen a big change in the restaurant scene in my town. Sakura Gardens (Japanese) in Mt. View, Mings (Chinese) in PA on El Camino Real back then, are long gone. There were many German restaurants in PA and Los Altos back then. All gone. The closest one I found recently was in Sunnyvale.

I love to cook and I love to experiment by making dishes from all those countries and ethnicities that my friend and I have experienced in restaurants. My hot kimchi soup would knock your socks off. Better have ice cubes available and ready to suck on.

I'd be happy to share my email address with Elena or any others who might be interested in the restaurants that my friend and I have tried.

Many people think we just eat to live, but in our modern day society, eating together has become a social event. Families do it on holidays, at weddings, on birthdays, and other special events, including memorial services. Sadly, many of these are the only times and events where we all get together.
