First I wanted to write about Canadian food in general.
Then I wanted to focus on Toronto restaurants.
Then I wanted to work through my personal issues through the context of food (Eat, Pray, Yada, Yada).
Then I wanted to create a high-concept pop-up restaurant.
Then I wanted to tell stories about fictional restaurants, including creating real recipes for them.
My solution was to do a little bit of each and make a blog that reads like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” novel.
Like a menu in a restaurant, a CYOA story allows you to pick and chose what interests you. You can do a full tasting menu, or just pop in to use the bathroom.
All these stories are connected, but they also exist separately. Story branches will be regularly updated in no particular order. When you get to the bottom of a post you can decide to continue with a particular storyline, change direction, OR CLICK THROUGH TO CERTAIN DOOM!!
Give it a try:
Here are curated paths that can be read by following similarly colored links:
- “I only want to hear about the food”
- “Entertain me with falsehoods!”
- “You mentioned, ‘Restaurant Theory,’ before, what is that?”
- “What’s your story stranger?”
- Haiku, Senryu, Tanka, Lune(s)
Or, just read it in reverse chronological order below…
