Yesterday was the Tartine Edition of Is My Blog Burning? day, which I had the honor of hosting this time around. In this, I was following in the steps of Alberto, who originally fathered this fun event. Many thanks to all who participated with such enthusiasm!
In setting the theme, I had hoped it provided enough structure to give an air of commonality between the contributions, but that it was also open enough for each of the participants to express their own taste and personality and cooking style. I am very happy to say that it seems to have fit the bill perfectly!
It was a joy to receive each of your emails telling me about your tartine, to hurry and read your posts, and see all the wonderful creations you came up with. I find it ever so heartwarming to think of each of you in your kitchen, as the IMBB? date approached, contemplating the contents of your fridge or leafing through your favorite cookbooks, scratching your head, trying to come up with an idea, then getting to work, and finally sharing the fruits of your brain juices and labor with the rest of us.
I am delighted to get a sense of the community we are forming, and I am all for making this a regular event : “Jamais deux sans trois”, as we say in French! So if one of you out there has an idea for a theme and would like to host the next edition, do speak up!
