My name is Josh Evans. I like food and I think it is important and powerful. I had been cooking for a while when I decided to start documenting my adventures more formally as a 2011 new year’s resolution. Hearthstrung started as a simple way of keeping track of what I was learning, making, and doing. It’s grown into something much broader for me: a way of reflecting on experiences and tracing stories, charting systems and connections, exploring the things that challenge and expand the categories of what is possible in the world.
I’m interested in sustainable food, the connections between my health and the health of the planet – and everything interesting, beautiful, and delicious. I like traveling, nature, photography, language, and the unknown. I like thinking. These are the things that inspire the stories I try to make.
I eat and I learn. These will never change. I am impelled to do both mindfully and well.
