My name is Adam, and I am a folklorist, a teacher, a photographer, a baker of breads, and a petter of cats. You may find, occasionally, that I am want to dip into minutia, descend into archana, launch boldly into tangentia, or otherwise wander off into speculations or abstractions of a most spectacular sort.
If you came here for recipes — I do that.
But I came to believe, somewhere along the line, that politics starts at home: in the kitchen, or perhaps in a backyard or barn. So in this space, what you’ll find is a mix of personal narrative and traditional foodways. What you’ll find is a healthy helping of (mostly-) American, (mostly-) progressive politics. What you’ll find — most of all — is that even a couple of years in, I’m still learning to do this blogging thing as I go along.
About This Site
Twice-cooked is an escape from, and refinement of, my long-kept and intermittently updated Livejournal. I have found, over the years, that my blogging interests have focused themselves, narrowing from an accounting of my daily activities (mostly tedious) to an exploration, and sometimes a justification, of the various outlets for my dilettantism. Which means, for now, that this is a blog about brewing, about food, sometimes about photography, and always — whether explicitly or not — about politics. But it means too that it is a blog that is subject to change as my interests, and my convictions about what might be of interest to others, evolve.
If you have come to this site expecting Twice-Cooked Photography, know that it is no more. That site made sense for me when I was part of an actively photo-friendly community, when I was more interested in having my photographs seen, and when I was taking pictures for money. You will find a goodly number of my photographs here. But largely, they will be in the service of my other interests.
Finally, if you had a photo gallery hosted through twice-cooked, worry not. Those subdomains are (mostly) still active, and you can reach them directly through their URLs.
If you want to get in touch with me, I am easily available around and about the online. You may email me at wadam(at)twice-cooked(dot)com. But know that my internal, mental spam filter is agressive. And if I don’t already know you, you might be more likely to get a response from me by commenting on one of my posts.
