Growing up in a Southern kitchen, David knows a good recipe when he sees one! From baking to grilling, David enjoys exploring all things culinary. After working for a number of years in the world of higher education and college athletics, David decided to follow his passion and venture into the world of food photography. David is the writer and photographer behind Spiced, a food blog that focuses on seasonal comfort food. When it comes to the kitchen, David's advice is to explore and have fun. Stumble across a new ingredient in the store? Grab it and experiment! You can always learn from your mistakes, and you might just stumble into something really tasty along the way. One of David's favorite activities when traveling internationally is going into local grocery stores...there are so many unique products and flavors that aren't common in the US. Give it a shot next time you are traveling in a different country! Remember--cooking is a journey, so enjoy the path as much as the destination! David is currently living outside of Saratoga Springs, NY, where he enjoys exploring the Northeast with his wife, toddler and spoiled Chihuahua mutt!
