Chez Chen

Hey everyone,

Thanks so much for reading along with my unguided exploration and self-teaching of cooking. Just wanted to let you know that if you'd like to keep up with what I'm currently doing, check out my new Tumblr blog I've started over at:

There, I'll do short posts tracking my meandering cooking and food explorations in a sort-of stream of consciousness manner.

I first started Escapades in Cookery back in 2011, but lately I don’t really do long posts discussing my process and thoughts the way I used to, and which I find Blogger is better suited to. Instead, these days I find myself preferring the short format that Tumblr (and Instagram) are designed toward and facilitate, and a lot of what I’m doing no longer makes it onto this blog.

I also just feel like the tongue in cheek name I took for Escapades no longer really fits me–I started this blog back when I was first beginning to cook more regularly and felt like I was still basically flailing in the brush. It's turned out that cooking’s become one of my main interests, and something I spend a lot of time doing, as well as reading and thinking about.

It's possible that I'll still do longer posts here, but at the least, all my existing posts will stay up for the time being. Thanks again, I appreciate your attention, and happy cooking!
