A Welcome From the Food Dude!
Welcome to the inaugural post!
I’m the Tampa Food Dude, although to many folks I’m probably better known as Tampa Bay area writer and critic, A.C. Noia.
I grew up in an italian home in Southern Connecticut where the kitchen was the most important room in the house and was raised with a love of cooking, food and drink. The Tampa Bay area has an amazingly rich food culture which my heritage has taught me to appreciate and I’ve been lucky enough to experience that culture for the last eighteen years.
For quite some time now, I’ve been subjecting my Facebook friends to what they probably consider annoying and inane photos of food, opinonated thoughts about certain local restaurants and bragging about new culinary acheivements that I’ve experimented with.
Since I already have a media blog (http://themediajunkie.wordpress.com), I figured it couldn’t hurt to start another one solely dedicated to all things food, right? So sit back, relax and enjoy the meal. If you like a dish I’ve posted about, if you’ve got an opinion about a particular beer or if you have a restaurant suggestion that you’d like me to review, by all means, leave a comment!
Remember… the food abides…
