Surprise! We've got some news...
Long time no see! If you’re receiving this email, it’s because once upon a time you signed up for a newsletter. It was really cool and fun to read and also made you think about a lot of things you probably never thought about before. Then that newsletter went away, and it was really sad.
Well, now it’s back. Kind of.
Say hello to Bittersweet - a new and improved version of this old and dormant Substack publication, written by yours truly (Jaime Wilson, for those who may have forgotten). For the last year or so I’ve been pretty quiet, which is mostly (if not entirely) due to the fact that I’ve been working significantly overtime in two Very Trendy Brooklyn Restaurants. It has been interesting and exhausting and I’ll tell you all about it later.
As for this new newsletter, it’ll be pretty similar to the letters you used to know and love, just with a bit more personality and flexibility. I’m not setting a schedule or making any promises. The goal is to create a more casual conversation about food, history, politics, and much more. There will be plenty of rants about the injustices of the food and food media industries, as well as conversations on agriculture and climate change, poems in honor of springtime produce, and random notes about the way that my cat loves to play with dried beans on the floor. Trust me, it’s going to be cool.
I know it’s been a while, and you probably weren’t expecting to see this name pop up in your inbox ever again. Well, here I am. And here I go. I sincerely hope that you’ll join me.
