Food Writer’s Opportunity

Could you offer to write a brief paragraph about the food-related history of the city in which you live?

For example, the tale is told of Mlle Evelyn Claudine de Saint-Évremond, daughter of a distinguished French courtier. She was an immigrant, who established a salon (vulgarly known as a bordello), in one of New York City’s most exclusive residential districts.

In no time at all, her name was abbreviated to “Eve.” The ladies in her employ soon became known as “Eve’s Apples.”

The establishment where they resided was cryptically referred to as “The Big Apple“. Visitations were therapeutic, for, as everyone knows, “An apple a day . . .”
