Why subscribe to the As We Eat Journal, you ask?

Well, we would love you to join us on a delightful culinary journey traversing food memories, family recipes, food traditions, cuisines, cookery, and history.

As our journey unfolds, you’ll learn how our food landscapes connect each of us to the past, the present, and to one another. You’ll also discover how dishes have come to define a space, a time, or a culture. And finally, it’s our genuine hope that you are inspired to dig a little deeper into the foods that you set on your table.

Each week Eric, Kim, and Leigh will serve up a smorgasbord of stories, photos, recipes, culinary journeys, podcasts, or videos (or some delicious combination of one or more) as we explore how food connects, defines, and inspires us.

The-always-free AWE Tuesday Journal features podcast episodes, short stories, food history, and/or random musings on what inspires us from recipes to recent reads. 

If you would like to get even more tasty stuff, we have a paid subscription option that includes:

AWE Friday Journal email

Every Friday morning, we’ll send you an email that includes things like photo essays and special recipes from Eric and Leigh’s culinary journey through the States; Recipe Box Roulette* essays accompanied by the original recipe; exclusive As We Eat podcast episodes and/or As We Eat, Going Places videos.

The satisfaction of being an integral part of our culinary journey 

Your decision to forego the purchase of the Talking Remote Meat Thermometer or the Automatic Mini Donut Factory to support As We Eat is a huge part of our ability to continue to create more delectable content that connects and inspire.

Welcome, and enjoy!

* Leigh is on a never-ending search for forgotten or abandoned recipe boxes. In an attempt to celebrate them, she created a “game” called Recipe Box Roulette. One recipe is drawn at random, made, researched, and then shared in a personal essay.
