A Brief Blog Profile: John and Elana Talk About Food
by Thomas Hynes
John and Elana Talk About Food is a brother-sister blog documenting two siblings' "quest for Italian culinary excellence." Luckily, they live in New York City. This blog appears to be a labor of love, or possibly sibling rivalry drives it. Truthfully, it's probably a little bit of both. As children, they hated school lunches. Today, they "still get whiny when it comes to mediocre meals." And thus, this blog was born, allowing John and Elana to act as "virtual taste-testers and tour guides" for all the delicious food they encounter.
Like John and Elana, I want to talk about the food. For example, there's this mouth-watering pizza. But, as you may have already guessed, this blog isn't just about food. Also present in this post is a shot of their text message conversation where Elana describes the pizza to John as a "campfire pizza donut." (WANT!) It's about eating, yes. But it's also about them. On another post, you'll see recipes, like this one for pistachio and cranberry biscotti. (Yeah, you read that right.) There's also this recipe for a flourless chocolate cake. But, in keeping with this blog's theme, it's a cake Elana is making for John's birthday.
As you can see, John and Elana Talk About Food is a food blog that is also so much more. The two can tell you which restaurants to try and how to make roasted garlic and parsley pesto. But most importantly, they also illustrate how there's nothing better than time with family.... Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go call my sisters.
