Writing Prompt: Live to Eat

Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?


I eat to live and within that, find ways to enjoy it. I enjoy both cooking and preparing raw meals that are tasty and unique. Experimenting with herbs allows me to create tongue tantalizing flavors that cause the eyes to close in ecstasy. When I create a meal, I put my whole heart into it. I love to see when people enjoy what I create and come back begging for more. Although I eat to live, I am still picky about the street food I ingest. The majority of public preprepared food establishments are disgusting, with bland food that is poorly prepared. When I find a spot that prepares food well, I am willing to travel miles on the days when I don’t feel like preparing my own meal. Good food is hard to find; therefore I am willing to make a trip to wake up my taste buds.

The longest I’ve traveled for a good meal has been two hours. Don’t look surprised. When a restaurant seasons its food with pixie dust and witches magic, the tongue becomes a compass.
