Hello! Welcome to FoodVictorian!

My name is Tori, short for Victoria, from which the blog's name comes. This is the place I come to share my love of food and entertaining.  I was raised just outside of Atlanta by a large, southern family who, when I was growing up, gathered together for every Sunday supper. They taught me to cook, to love and to share that love over masses of food. I want to honor them by continuing that tradition of sharing food, love and laughter with those around me!

On FoodVictorian, I share recipes from my kitchen, some of my favorite places to eat outside of the kitchen, and lovely ideas for entertaining. I hope to inspire you to share food with others in southern style! 

A little about myself, I am a lighting designer, but also, I design custom stationary and invitations here: I am fairly obsessed with the following items, in no particular order: creamy black tea, well-designed spaces and objects, economics, cheesy romance novels, organic gardening, cute animals, organizing, all things British, funky hats, dark, dark chocolate and other people who do fabulous, clever things!
