Welcome to Well Preserved!
There are two of us who maintain this site – one is a professional designer and the other is not. Some of her designs are featured in your kitchen and some of his ideas on food may help influence yours.
The idea of this blog is to share some of our passions – we are not professional chefs (nor close to it). We are passionate about food – cooking, buying, tasting, sharing and packaging it. We will share many angles of food on this site – all of it is very anecdotal and based on our experiences.
We will share our experiences with food – ranging from a passion for hole-in-the-wall cafeteria style service restaurants through the supposed best in the world. We will also share our own experiences of cooking, jarring, pickling and hunting for our own food. The writing will have a bias that all things are new though many of you will know much of what we share – it is our hope to provide some inspiration, ideas or resources that you may enjoy or may help influence your own experience.
The vision for this site is to form a gathering place for those wanting to be inspired as well as those looking for inspiration. I hope that readers will add to the discussions, sites and ideas. Share your candid feedback, extend the respect of the dining room to the other guests and you are welcome to join the conversation!
Dana and Joel (the main blog that is updated is at the top under Home).
