When I moved from Philadelphia to the Swedesboro area in 2010, one thing I knew I was giving up was a vibrant, local restaurant scene as one can only expect to find in a large urban city. Granted I scored a huge dream kitchen for myself as part of the deal, so I wasn’t about to complain very much. Still, one of the definite drawbacks of living in a rural part of New Jersey is that local dining options are largely limited to old fashioned diners, Chinese/Japanese “fusion” spots, red gravy Italian, sports bars and national chains.
About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
