About the Blog

Birger is both a play on one of my favorite foods, the (ham)burger, and a Scandinavian name from Old Norse, bjarga, meaning “to help, to save, to protect”.  Bird is a nickname I’ve acquired over the years and I stuck birger onto it for the name of this blog, which is here to help, save and protect.  No, just kidding.  I started my blog as a sort of food journal, to document restaurant and cookbook reviews, family recipes, my own original recipes, home entertaining, travel, and most of all my love affair with baking.
