Yes I know this blog is named for gruel but as you may notice these days in mostly wine. Don’t worry I will add a pie, time to time.

As for vino, I have a Wine and Spirits Educational Trust advanced degree and am starting the Diploma program. I also am a Certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers. I’m also writing wine features for Delectable! Oh and then there is the podcast…

As for the gruel:

Why gruel?
Gruel is ugly. Sometimes my food is too. But sometimes the ugliest food is the heartiest most satisfying stuff to be munched upon. Food that is good for the soul. It may be gruel, but it tastes scrumptious.. Gruel is food with attitude, food with character. Food for real people with real appetite. Wow, that’s so pretentious of me to say in the hip/bourgeois way…Meow.
Oh, and my gruel is always vegetarian. I’ve been one since the age of twelve. Huge animal lover. I don’t lecture people who want to eat meat though-different bodies need different things.
I also at times write a bit about what is up in my nutty actor/dancer/contortionist life here in LA. It’s too crazy not to.
I’m gonna go ahead and be self promotional and say that if you’d like to know more about me and my acting you can check out my webpage, http://www.ellenclifford.com
Until then, get yourself some gruel and chow down! Like a mofo.

    Yup, new follower. You’re awesome. I’m a non-lecturing vegetarian as well. Happy to say I will definitely be back!
