Oh, hey! My name is Martin Otis, and I’m the wide-eyed, crazy vegetarian behind Tasty Decoy.
Back in 2012 while I was living in Oakland, CA I started to get ideas for a food blog that specialized in vegetarian cooking—with an emphasis on faking/substituting meat. However, like most poorly planned flights of fancy, the whole thing got shelved for one reason or another…Which in retrospect wasn’t the worst thing.
Fast forward to 2015…My husband and I found ourselves ready to leave the fine city of Oakland and I’ve always harbored dreams of living in the forests of Northern California. So we set out to find our dream home and then everything changed…
Today Tasty Decoy is dedicated to continuing my original plans of exploring a vegetarian lifestyle. There will still be a lot about faking meat—but our new lives add in so much more: foraging, wildcrafting and being outdoors…along with insights into what its like to live life in rural, coastal California.
I’m so glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll continue to come back and hang out more often!
