I am thrilled to be able to share my Eat Your Words Culinary Puzzle with readers of the Empty Nesters Kitchen blog.  I created this themed activity several years ago for two reasons.  The first was to further my own education in regards to the enormous culinary world that envelops us.  The second was to formulate an avenue to publish what I learned in a fun and engaging way.  You can look forward to the exploration of a multitude of appetizing topics.  Including food, beverages, international ingredients, cultural dishes etc…
