Fine Food and Interesting Tales from Afar

The Internet provides us with so many wonderful opportunities to connect with people all over the world. I am particularly interested in bloggers who are age 55 to 100. I'm in that age group and I thoroughly enjoy these blogs. Since we have set up our Pinterest account I've found some good ones that I'll share. For now, here is one of my all time favorite blogs along with some of the pictures I have accumulated over the years.

Rita and I have been friends for several years even though we live in different countries--me from the U.S. and she from Canada.

In fact, when tornados were roaring through the Dallas area, and the sirens were blaring, I came in to my office and read several posts from Sage Cuisine to get my mind off of the insanity that was going on around me!!

She says on her blog, "Food is my passion and instead of a novel I much prefer reading a cook book, recipe book anything to do with food. I post once a week about things that make me Happy. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and a friend to a few special people.

Family, memories, food, recipes, gadgets, chefs, cooking, restaurants, herbs, markets, travel etc. will be my focus. Rita"

I agree with Norman Kolpas who said, "Food, like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power, has that ability to comfort." So does this website. Filled with excellent quotations, travel memories, sweet graphics and delicious recipes, this is one you'll love.

You will find posts about such things as Paninis and Daffodils, Food for Thought, and A Surprise Visitor. Be sure and scroll down to "older posts"...there is so much there to love!

Another lovely aspect of this blog is the people who follow Rita. There are 202 of them and they are from all over the world. Here are a couple that I liked:

Sage Cuisine and many of its followers adhere to Fernand Point's marvelous quote where he said,
"If the divine creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony."

Thank you so much Mimi; you make me blush. You know how I enjoy coming to visit you. I appreciate your words. I encourage your readers to let their passions guide them; blogging has been a life changer for me thanks to my Sylvana for the suggestion. You never know what you can accomplish unless you try.
I thought they might enjoy this quote:
