A Brief Blog Profile: A Taste of Koko
A wise person once wrote, "Life [is] short, eat naked."
That person is foodie Jane Ko, blogger and photographer of A Taste of Koko.
But Ko doesn't mean eating naked in the literal sense. She tells readers not to be afraid to try food in its purest form.
"Food culture is racing toward fancy, deconstructed, constructed, chemistrified food from five-star restaurants with with lavishly equipped kitchens," she wrote in her blog. "Don’t get me wrong, I am a sucker for five-star restaurants. But lower your standards and look past those fancy decorations and expensive ingredients and instead try foods in their original form or from a local eatery."
This is pretty sound advise. Through her blog, Ko writes about recipes, cooking and baking tips, restaurants and product reviews.
Her favorite kitchen tool? The wine bottle.
"You can roll out cookies and drink from it," she said.
Among her most popular posts is one about Peppermint Bark, which already has garnered more than 2,235 views. (Incidentally, I'll be testing this recipe tonight. Thanks, Jane.)
