Welcome to Amusing Bouche

Hello, my name is Maureen and welcome to my blog, Amusing Bouche. The title is a poor attempt to play on the French appetizer called amuse-bouche.

Food is something I’m passionate about and enjoy as an extracurricular activity. If I’m not actively eating food, I’m researching food, preparing food, or talking about food to others.
