Theresa is a Philadelphia transplant who grew up in a neighborhood where fresh ingredients and a local market were always a stone's throw away. Eating dinner together every night was a ritual at her house.
When she moved to the Phoenix area, food became associated with convenience; and markets became big mega-chains with the same staples you could find anywhere. She noticed a 'disconnect' between culture, community and food.
Theresa found herself quickly becoming an outcast in her community, as she strived to find that one ingredient needed to turn a basic meal into something special.Â She constantly seeks out good food and drink. It's who she is and how she was raised. Her blog, The Food Hunterâ€™s Guide to Cuisine, will show you through her experiences how sheâ€™s managed to create her own culture and find amazing cuisine wherever she goes.
