About

I’m a dedicated Foodie. I especially appreciate when a chef takes fine quality local ingredients and does simple things to create a magical culinary experience.

I will write about food that I eat, food that I cook, special food finds and food info, and occasionally, random philosophy!

Hope you enjoy, and I always welcome input and comments.

By day, I am a business consultant in Talent Management and Acquisition in Orange County, CA.

The blog title, purelyconsumed is inspired by two lines in Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet that describe how our “board” (table) should have be an altar “on which the pure and the innocent of forest and plain are sacrificed for that which is purer and still more innocent in many”.  The other verse talks about when we slay a beast, we too are slain, and we too shall be consumed.  In other words, you are what you eat, and what you eat (at least partly) makes you who you are.

I also feel that what and how we eat is a Zen experience – it is about the pure act of consumption.  If you are also cooking the food, it is also about being fully present in the food sourcing and preparation, and doing that as “purely” as possible.

By the way:  The picture is of the pastries at Gerard Mulot in Paris.  I didn’t take the photo, but I have been there, and it totally deserves a place of honor at the top of this page!

    When I started reading food blogs 3 years ago, I was pleasantly surprised that more and more women started to share their recipes, and then came the awareness about how other people are making healthier food choices and how disconnected we are about where our food came from. I enjoyed reading your posts and I really look forward to reading and learning more from you.
