Grand opening

Some people out there told me I ought to open a food blog.

Why would I do so ?

I don't have much interest in blogging. Previous attempts were pretty boring and actually a pain to keep up with updates. But I do have a genuine interest in food and love to brag about the new discoveries I've made while baking or cooking my last dish. I take pride in what I do, and I think that's what changed my mind. If I can inspire another cook, that would be my pleasure.

Why Cidre et Poires ? Let's be honest: it sounds fancy in french (which happens to be my first language). Also, Cidre means cider, which is one of my favorite beverages and Quebec, where I'm from, produces an insane amount of apples (and we do real good cider too, heh).

Poires, means pears, because I love the delicate flavor of that fruit and it sounds more European-ish, which I thought would be a good balance. Together, they represent drink and food, delicate fruits and the transformation they are undergoing in the cooking/brewing process.

So, I hope all of you have a good time reading my ramblings and I will try to keep it updated as much as possible.
