We are best friends who live 2000 miles apart. Networking, through our sorority, brought us together. Lifes’s ups and downs keep us together! Ilona, “Townie”, lives in a suburb in New Jersey. Victoria, “Bumpkin”, lives in a small town in Colorado. We thought it would be a fun way to do something “together” even across the great divide so, we decided our common love of food and cooking would be a great thing to share. Ilona has much easier access to stores that offer a variety of ingredients, including fresh, ethnic and unusual while Victoria often has to “make it up”. This is our tromp through the world of food (and our lives) from 2 different perspectives.
