What are you most looking forward to about FBC12?
Blogging can be a somewhat lonely process so I’m most looking forward to meeting fellow food fanatics. I’m also extremely excited for Silverman’s food photography workshop.

What’s your least favorite food?
Foie gras, no matter how hard I try I just don’t get the allure of it.

Any comical kitchen failures?
Whilst in college I once constructed a bowl out of aluminium foil in attempt to deep fry perogies in the oven. Thankfully my flatmate was sensible enough to stop me before I blew up our apartment.

What would your last meal be?
A piping hot bowl of pho with thinly sliced rare beef layered on top and a glass of iced vietnamese coffee.

What’s the next big thing that’s going to hit the food scene?
I’ll be keeping an eye out for dumpling trucks. If you see one please send it my way.

Where do you get inspiration from?
I’m addicted to the FoodNetwork and various food magazines but the main source of my inspiration comes from friends & family – the people I experience food with.

How has food blogging changed your life?
Food blogging has heighted my senses not just to the food I eat but also to my surroundings. I’m a bit more aware of what’s around me, as if awaking from a daze.

What do you find most challenging about blogging?
Creating good content on a regular basis is the most challenging but also the most rewarding.

What does your family/partner think of your blog?
I’ve been taking pictures of my meals for a very long time. I think both my friends and family, at this point, have accepted that writing about it is just another quirk of mine.  My partner offers no opinion as he’s too busy taste testing.
