I enjoyed the overall atmosphere at the conference and I loved meeting Sammy Tamimi and Yotem Ottolenghi. I also loved the cocktails! I am coming back because I met so many fantastic people and I learned so much. My blog was very, very new when I first attended and now, after having a year of experience, I think I will learn things on a new level.
What’s your signature dish?
Here is a cocktail brandy milk punch
I follow Beth Kirby at Local Milk – not met through FBC but undoubtedly found because FBC inspired me to reach out to attend workshops.
I also follow Joy the Baker, a friend from New Orleans, and Vikalinka who I met at FBC14.
Yes! I have learned a lot about how they persevered to keep their blogs going, or how they followed their ideas until they achieved success. I also have enjoyed seeing the person behind the blog and finding out that they too struggle with inspiration, deadlines and social media anxiety.
Finish this sentence: “For me, the ultimate food heaven is …”
For me the ultimate food heaven is cooking with friends after a day at the farmers market in Tuscany.
My favorite celebrity chef is Jamie Oliver because he is passionate about health and accessibility and he does what he can to make a difference.
How many cookbooks do you own? What cookbooks have you added to your collection recently? Which cookbook do you return to time and time again?
I own about 400. My favorite new purchase is Prune and the one I return to over and over again is the whole Ina Garten set.
For me the words come more easily than the photography. The idea for the dish is first, then the photography, then I write it up.
