The Eaten Path is a food blog founded by James Boo, a friend of mine from the days when eating pizza everyday for lunch was a viable and admirable exercise. That spirit lives on in the blog, of which I am proud to consider myself a part.
From The Eaten Path:
What is this blog about?
The Eaten Path delivers the story of a meal. Sometimes it is about the meal. Sometimes it is about the journey to get to the meal.
What foods does this blog cover?
Sometimes we cover sit-down restaurants and fine dining establishments, but we’re typically drawn to the meal that is more of a precondition than a presentation. Soft spots for holes in the wall, regulars, meals from wheels, and tastes of another walk of life.
That said, we don’t read the Zagat Survey and don’t try to break the news. With so many qualified eaters already writing about food on the internet, we prefer to take a step back and write through the lens of narrative rather than review.
We do not write about free meals and avoid one-off reviews as much as possible. We are undeniably lay food bloggers, not professional food critics. We observe this distinction, and encourage a healthy dose of context and skepticism when reading any food blog.
I’ve been a contributing writer on The Eaten Path for nearly three years now and the experience has been a valuable one. It’s helped me grow as a writer, as an eater, and as someone who lives in a world surrounded by varying culture. To find recent posts by me, click here.
