BlogHer Voice of the Week: The Wilder Coast

"On my first full day of magical thinking, I ate my power animal." ~ Melina, The Wilder Coast Food writing is hard, to paraphrase the doyenne of food blogging, Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes. If Elise is right, and she nearly always is in my experience, it follows that food storytelling would be even harder and food parables the hardest.
