Why Six by 10?

I named this blog Six by 10 because of the microscopic size of the kitchen in the San Francisco apartment occupied by my fiance and I. The kitchen itself is six feet wide by ten feet long, with an electric stove, full size refrigerator, about six feet of impossible to use counter space, and one electrical outlet. And the refrigerator is plugged into that outlet. So in reality, we have one plug with which to power the microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, and the laundry list of other small appliances we use to occasionally make our favorite culinary delights. Needless to say, the kitchen is tiny. Tiny, and completely impractical as an actual kitchen. But somehow we make it work. The two of us can't actually both be in the kitchen at the same time, as it makes it impossible to get anything made, but the magic still happens.

So in my tiny kitchen and outside of it, we love food; preparing it, cooking it, learning about it, and of course, eating it. I hope that with this blog I can share my experiences, successes, failues, good and bad restaurants, insights, and whatever else comes to mind in regards to the world of food. Who knows? Might be fun.
