My self-summary
Hey...name's Elliot, obviously. I figure its not going to matter ultimately what I write here because of how trivial and cursory an online profile can be, but I'll still give it a try.

I'm a cook in Boston (Somerville to be specific). I was born and raised in New York City but ran away from it all when I was 18 and spent the next five years in Burlington, Vermont. I took a brief hiatus from my favorite place on Earth to go to the Culinary Institute of America, but returned afterwards to Burlington. I'm a recent transplant to the Boston area and in between crazy work shifts I'm just starting to explore my new home.

I'm really into food and food systems, which I guess is a good thing considering my line of work. I'm also really into beer, bluegrass music and the great outdoors. The hardest part about moving to Boston is that I'm no longer close to mountains. But I still try my best to get out hiking as often as possible. And there's a rock gym near me so I can always climb indoors.

To answer the inevitable question, no I'm not a skier. Never done it in my life. I know, 7 years in Vermont and no skiing . Weird. But it happens (or it did to me anyway!). But I'm always open to new adventures, especially the ones without a roof over my head. I'd love to meet like-minded individuals who like being in nature, appreciate food and cooking, and are generally excited about new experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a restaurant cook most of the time, and a menu consultant as a bit of a personal side project.
I’m really good at
Haha...if you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a pretty good cook. I'm also great at drinking beer and whiskey, and I'm a pretty good outdoorsman (for a New Yorker).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short, but I'm talkative. When I get excited about something I often don't realize how loud I'm speaking. I have long hair and usually have a beard and even though I'm not much of a hippie, it's what people notice about me first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books - Lord of the Rings, Kitchen Confidential, anything by Michael Pollan, Mark Kurlansky and Michael Lewis. John Krakauer anyone? And I can't forget Thoreau, Emerson and Leopold. Elliot Coleman is pretty neat too. Okay there is definitely a lot more. Ask me!
Favorite movies - Too many to list, but LoTR, the original Star Wars trilogy, anything by the Coen Brothers (especially the Big Lebowski) and anything by Tarrantino
Favorite shows - 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, Anthony Bourdain, The Daily Show, Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black
Favorite food - Halal off the street in New York, or duck in any form. I'm also obsessed with eggs. And stuff that can be fried (especially in duck fat). But I have a bit of an obsession with vegetables and eat a ton of them. And as a New York native I'd be remiss if I didn't mention bagels and lox.
The six things I could never do without
1. Chef's knife
2. A book
3. My cat
4. My car
5. My best friends
6. Beer and decent food (OK that's 7 things...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cooking, eating and drinking. Also environmental issues specifically related to the global food supply. I have a genuine interest in sustainable agriculture and in sustainable fisheries management. Also rock climbing. It's my only physical activity during the winter so I climb all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seriously? I'm a cook. I'm at work. But otberwise , if I didn't have to work, I'd either be at a folk music venue listening and dancing to some old timey bluegrass or on the road (I travel a lot. I have a little wanderlust)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like John Denver. Also, I was a vegetarian for three years, and I could eat a whole box of donuts if you just give me the chance.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 18–27
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Well, you should message me. I don't know what to write in these things usually so your best bet if you want to get to know me is to get in touch! And please, take a few minutes to write something :). I'd do the same if I were messaging you!
