In victus illic est vita: In Food There Is Life

Welcome!  This is the first post in my newly reincarnated Foodie blog.  Some of you might know my other foodie entries over on LiveJournal.  However from now on the food-specific stuff will be here and the LiveJournal blog will remain my fitness and personal blog. 

First off, what does Cibatarian mean?  Cibus is one of several Latin words for food.  It implies food specifically for nourishment.  Cibatarian is a word I made up.  It's a combination of librarian and cibus.  More importantly, it wasn't already in use by another blogger.

So exactly what will this blog be about?  All things food.  I love food.  I love to prepare food, eat it, talk about it, watch people eat it and hear others talk about it.  Food is a social event, an expression of love, and a necessary activity, all wrapped up in one.  Food is also a challenge we all must face in one way or another.  For example, I am unable to each any plant in the genus Allium, as in garlic, onions, chives, leeks, etc, or anything that produces allicine.   I have other friends who are unable to eat other ingredients.  So for us to get together for a meal we have major challenges.  But the results, friendship, great food and fun times, are well worth it.  

Disclaimer: I am not being paid in any way to write this blog.  It's a labor of love for one of life's greatest pleasures.  

In wine there is truth; in food there is life.

  1. Cool and spiffy. I like the Cibus + Librarian. The first thing I did when I saw it, was have google define it; no definition to be found.

    OASN, 'In victus' (also?) mean Un Conquered.

    Can't wait to see what you put up. :D
