It's a little hard to explain what this site is about. Matthew Amster-Burton, a food writer living in Seattle, mentioned
the idea of a site like this on his blog Roots & Grubs. That's probably the best place to start thinking about what
this might be.
This (very small) site was created by J.R. Tipton (email@example.com) and is, obviously, very heavily influenced by Matthew's original
ideas and his feedback. I can't say why I'm doing it, exactly. I write code down in the Windows kernel for a living, so it is a little nice to
get my head up and look out at higher-level development projects; it's been years, really, since I've done that sort of thing.
And I like food. I gather that other folks
given the remarkable
proliferation of "what
have for dinner today?" threads spread
out on various message boards. In my mind, the king of all of these is the eGullet "Dinner!" thread.

This site uses the very cool famfam silk icon set, which is totally free. The site is running on
ASP.NET with a little ATLAS-style AJAX here and there.
