The first addition to my blogroll is...
the ulterior epicure
"i live and travel to eat"
(the) ulterior epicure is someone who I've kept tabs on since before he was famous. I remember back in the day reading his posts on eGullet wonder who is this guy with the weird avatar and why do I keep bumping into him on almost every thread I read. Then I found his blog. Then I found his Flickr account. I was pretty much hooked after that.
The amount of things we have in common is pretty uncanny, but the differences are what earn him a spot on my blogroll. Differences being that he's far more articulate than myself and has a better trained palate - a lot better. In fact, he has one of the most knowledgeable and discerning palates I've come across in someone who is not a chef. And his photography. Maybe I need to get myself a dSLR, but I still don't think that would land me an interview in Popular Photography.
Oh, and the fact that he's now just "right down the road" in Kansas City is pretty cool too.
