My name is John Newton and I am a food lover, cooker, and writer living in the city of Chicago, Illinois – the deep rich heart of the Midwest US.
Nothing really gives me the authority to post to this blog other than the fact that I have an obsession with the culture of food. As a child, I mainly ate food purely for function, but somewhere along the way, I managed to find out that there is a lot to think about in reference to the why of food.
I try to question everything as much as I can.
My friends call me Fig.
