Today we are meeting Marthe Teunis from Zwolle, The Netherlands. Marthe is the food blogger behind thebakingbluefinger.wordpress.com
What motivated you to blog about food?
I have always liked baking and cooking and was browsing the Internet looking for new recipes to try out when I found a group called Tuesdays with Dorie, this group of bloggers were baking their way through ‘Baking: From my Home to Yours’ by Dorie Greenspan. I really wanted to join, but one of the conditions was that you had to write a blog so you could post the dishes. So I decided to start blogging.
Who taught you to cook?
My mom taught me how to cook and bake. For as long as I can remember my mom always baked her own cakes for our birthdays and I was probably about 6 years old when I started helping her.
Do you have a favourite food writer and why?
Either Dorie Greenspan or David Lebovitz, they both live in Paris and I love to read about places and shops that I have also visited. Besides that their blogs are quite entertaining and have great recipes.
Future aspirations for the blog?
Hmmm…. right now I don’t have enough spare time, but I would love to actually own my own domain and blog about recipes I’ve actually come up with myself on a regular basis.
What does your family/partner think of your blog?
Most of my family and friends know I blog, but they don’t frequent my blog. My mom reads it every now and then and my brother (a social media reporter) thinks I’m very 2.0. According to him that’s a compliment, but I’m still not quite sure what it means!
Tell us something you learned from reading blogs you probably wouldn’t know otherwise?
