The Journey Begins - my life in food and wine

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

So who would have thought that at the age of 52 I'd be not only an orphan, but unemployed and living in a new home which was my old home! They say that some of the most traumatic things in life are the loss of a loved one; a change of career and moving. Well all of this happened to me within the space of a year! It would be really easy to wallow in self pity but I'm not really sure how to do that. Instead I've embraced the changes and have tried to greet each day with a smile. Sounds corny I know but it's actually true and amazing how good you can feel with a sense of peace within.

What to write that's the question and why. Well I think that it's cathartic to write so that's the first part. Second my journey began with food and wine and will continue with food and wine and I know that I have a lot to say!

Why FKDecanted? Francine Kowalsky (FK), Decanted an homage to my love of wine; and it's me "exposed or decanted". So travel with me through my love of wine, food and into a new life. I will talk about how my love of wine and food began; take you on journeys to some of the fantastic places I've traveled to in life and during my career in wine; delve into wine and it hope to decant some of its mysteries and wonders.
