Hello my faithful and other readers. Once upon a time this blog was close to my heart, and then I was distracted by other aspects of life. I have been, that is, faithless, and I have not been writing regularly or doing as good a job with visuals and keeping up with the nature of blogging. Thank you so much for your patience and for your support IRL and in the blogosphere.
Bibliochef has returned. I have removed ties to my professional life (as you will see looking at the side bars) and am fully intending to revamp and update various aspects of how I post entries.
So far I have deleted loads of blog and other links on the side bars, as of March 17, to try to get more up to date (loads of those were just dead) -- though a lot of what is left are more archival than current since a lot of those bloggers seem to have moved on to other platforms (or lives). But it is a start.
Give me some time on all this!
Meanwhile: watch here for new book reviews, new restaurant reviews, and maybe (just maybe) some cooking itself. In particular, you will see at least the following in the coming days, weeks, months, etc
