Happy February! It's almost unreal that we have already spent a whole month in 2016! Only 31 days in and I can proudly state 2016 has started with a thrilling bang, including landing a new job, and gaining more opportunities to venture into the magazine writing space. Now it's time to sustain that momentum, and bring some innovative ideas to Geo's Table.
As many of you know, February is recognized as Black History Month, and in honor of this I am elated to bring you the first Geo's Table series 28 Days of Soul. Although this year denotes a leap year with 29 days, it is my hope that this become an annual series that is celebrated each year here at Geo's Table.
Guided by my personal philosophy of Eat well. Share experiences. Cultivate Community. 28 Days of Soul will fold each piece of this to segments that celebrate my history and heritage. This will in
- Eat well: Celebrating the cuisine of the african american community, I will offer new and modern takes on soul food and other personal favorites through a weekly segment called, The Evolution of the Black Kitchen.
- Share experiences: Broadening my personal knowledge as well as the knowledge of others has always been very important. Using Twitter and Facebook as my platform, I will offer tidbits of "food-related" history and insights throughout the month.
- Cultivate community : Honoring the past, and investing in the future, I will also highlight movers and shakers in the food community (locally and beyond).
I am anxiously awaiting all of the great things that this month will bring, and can't wait to see how it's received. Leave any comments or ideas you'd like to see!
