2014 Year-Ender: Adventures in Food

Looking back at my photos for 2014, I realized that there were quite a number of gastronomic adventures I wasn’t able to write about in this blog.  As the year draws to a close and it is still the season of eating, my yearend post might as well have to be about food!
