Sipping aperitifs in Rome: Any place in Italy is Amy's perfect food destination.

A Shared Love of Food, Travel, & General Weirdness

Amy and Tim met the summer between their freshman and sophomore year of college while working at the same small, family-owned amusement park in the Capital Region of Upstate New York. Yes, this is a teenage carny love story. They've spent the past 16+ years visiting new places and eating everything in sight.  Amy, a vegetarian for over 20 years, is not afraid of getting her hands dirty while whipping up a tasty marinade for Tim, who is decidedly not a vegetarian. 

In their weekday lives, Tim is a middle school principal with a deep love of sandwiches and Amy is an elementary school counselor who obsesses over homemade croutons and babka. They live with their rescued boxador (half lab/half boxer) Jim, who pulls his weight in the kitchen by keeping the floor clean.

 James the Boxador's perfect food destination is wherever someone is eating something.

Sandwich? Check. Brooklyn? Check. Awesome backdrop? Double check. NYC is Tim's perfect food destination.
