SO, what is “Cultivated Journey” you ask? For me, it’s the culmination of many ideas & embodies so much of what I want to share but to break it down …
Cultivate= apply oneself to improving or developing (one’s mind or manners). synonyms: improve, better, refine, elevate; educate, train, develop, enrich Yes please, always!
But it also has humbler origins ….mid 17th century: from medieval Latin cultivat- ‘prepared for crops,’ Which ties in to my desire to EAT fresh, BE Local!
Journey = “travel, go, voyage, sail, cruise, fly, hike, trek, ride, drive, make one’s way” Sounds perfect! Here we GO!!
What can you expect from Cultivated Journey?
My aim is to educate, enrich & elevate your culinary adventures by connecting you with local farms, markets & eateries in every community you stay in or explore. I will do this by providing you with relevant content & resources whether you are a casual traveler or full-time nomad living the life. I want to inspire all of you small kitchen gourmets to embrace your journey & eat well along the way!
Cookbooks, Courses, Caravans & OH MY!!
As Cultivated Journey is starting I have big ideas & plans so visit often & be sure to subscribe for updates!!! I ultimately want this to be a place you can come for all things food (with some craft brew, wine & coffee thrown in too) while you travel this country. I plan to write consistently with the intention of inspiring or teaching you something new . I will post new content several times a week. I have written a free e-cookbook that I will make available & am working on a print book for the end of next year. I even have a few projects on the ‘drawing board” like regional food, beer & wine trail-style RV caravans?? If you have ANY IDEAS feel free to email me as I would love to hear from you.
