Chef David Guas Mixes it Up from the Spoon to the Pen…

In His Own Words, Announcing Epicurious.com’s Newest Blogger
“Well, I like to think of myself as the strong, silent type, but when you get me talking about something I care about [honey, barbeque, healthy school lunches,] I will make sure you are listening.  The good folks at Condé Nast must have caught on to me, and I’m honored to report that they’ve asked me to contribute a few inspiring and thought provoking paragraphs a week to their blog on Epicurious.com. So tune in on Mondays and Thursdays for my musings on, well, whatever strikes my fancy.  Rest assured it’ll have something to do with good Louisiana cooking, or good memories, a good idea or a good cause.”
