Not About Food 12

Looking for spark [moved from General Topics board]

I, like many of you is the kind of person who lives to eat. My vacations are planned around food. Everything I read pertains to food; cookbooks, food writings, chef's bios, etc. I don't remember the last time I bought an article of clothing but somehow I always find money to try a new restaurant or increase my cookbook collection. But lately I've been in a dry spell. I recently became a mother and have moved back to my hometown, with my husband, which basically contains no food scene.
I am a pastry chef. I have my own business catering the dessert needs of all who desire. But I need something to spark my interest, to remind me of why I love what I do. I want to remember what it was like when I experienced my first taste of a white truffle. I want to experience that joy I felt when I bit into the most decadent chocolate dessert which was then washed down with a splash of port.
Anyone else feel the same? Any ideas?
