Have a recommendation? We'd LOVE to hear it!
Salutations Readers!

Kalamazoo has good food.
Great food, in fact. We have made it our mission to check out all the local eateries one at a time - and more for our own poor memories than any other reason, we'll be chronicling our adventures in food here. And some places float our boats way more than others, which is why we have developed the very scientific
five golden forks rating scale. Ok. It is not scientific at all. It is actually quite unscientific. But, it is something. And now, you can search all of our reviews by the forks rating. YAY!

But, wait! There's more!
Kalamazoo Foodies no longer just eat at restaurants then review them. There are recipes posted, some easy, some less easy, all delicious. There are, or will be, book reviews, the new
Foodie Movie Review-y which will focus on movies about food or ones that have a lot of beautiful food in them. There are other food musings, and hopefully soon contests and so much more. But, Foodie Friends, it is all about food. Because we love it!
And, we want to hear from you!

We want to hear your comments on our recipes and reviews. We want to know where you love to eat. And, we are looking for GUEST bloggers to broaden our horizons a bit. And, if you haven't found us on Facebook, you should do that too. Like our page for other fun Foodies stuff like photos, polls, and more.

SO KALAMAZOO PATRONS - where do YOU love to eat? Because we'd love to check it out and share our thoughts here. Give us a comment below, and quickly! Our tummies are grumbling in anticipation.

A Note from the Foodies about our typical fair:
So, you may notice as you read our blog that we often order the same thing wherever we go. OK, maybe not quite, but we do often order similar things. Kristin has her caprese salads and mushroom dishes. Kate has her baked goat cheese and things with tofu. Well, readers, we wanted to let you know that this is absolutely intentional. A) We love those things, so why not order what you love? And, B) It is a lot easier to compare apples to apples than it is to compare apples to comquats. So, we like to order similar things to have a good sense of how to compare them. Just wanted to let you in on that little secret. Bon appetit!

Food Dance

Kristin: Baked Portabello Mushroom and Food Dance Cheese Board
I heart mushrooms. Not like, the psychedelic kind, but the kind that you cook and it can almost double as meat. So there really wasn't a lot that food dance could do wrong when I ordered this, but they not only ended up doing it right... they did it RIIIIIIGHT. It probably also helped that the appetizer for the evening set the tone right with wonderful and sophisticated cheeses/ crackers.

Kate: Food Dance Cheese Board and Pecan Chicken Salad
Every Food Dance experience makes me want to come back for more. On this occasion, I had my friend, Brett, in from out-of-town and wanted to go somewhere a little fancy and delicious. This was a good choice. We enjoyed their AMAZING wine special for the evening, 1/2 price bottles. I thoroughly enjoyed the Heron Pinot Noir from Rhone France at a VERY decent price. The cheese board was a great way to kick off our experience. I can't even remember what cheeses were on it, but I could not stop. And, they have wonderful house-made crackers that make it even better.
My salad was nothing too fancy, but it all come together for a plate of deliciousness. I can't recall what dressing I had, I think the, possibly, the house vinaigrette. But, it was a good portion size, light, yummy.
I believe we also enjoyed a vanilla bean creme brulee at our table that evening. All three of us that were dining are creme brulee junkies, so we shared a serving. It was, as expected, to die for!
Oh, Food Dance, how I love you so!
