Cuisine Capers was created by two rabid foodies, Vic and Irene, who spend far too much time thinking about their next meal. Long time acquaintances, the other bad habit they picked up along the way was messing around with the Internet.
In early 1997 they got a brilliant idea – combine their food obsession with their Internet addiction and create an online dining guide for their city. Madison Dining Online was born. While attracting a few hundred thousand visitors a year, it doesn’t really make any money, but it keeps them in computers, Internet access, and now and then allows them to splurge on good local restaurant meals, passed off as a business expense through the reviews written for the site.
Both have travelled all over the US and the world, sampling as many restaurants as they can along the way. While Vic and Irene may have a lot in common, there are quite a few differences as well.
Irene is unmarried, but living with a “significant other” for the past 20+ years. He stubbornly clings to a liking of bell peppers and an old, tiny, decrepit Smokey Joe grill just to annoy Irene. Irene’s main philosophy for food: Fruit and “real food” have no business being served atop one another. Seperate courses are fine, but never the twain shall meet when it comes to combining these two entities.
Vic is happily married with a house full of kids. Many of his more gourmet endeavors are greeted with an “ewwww” from the children gathered around his table, who view the word “Spice” as a four letter word. His preferences lean towards asian fusion style foods and manly grilling. He is obsessed with hot dogs, and has made hitting all of the major joints one of his lifetime goals. He happily puts fruit on his meat.
