60 Seconds with Charlie Lee-Potter (Eggs on the Roof)

Food Blogger Charlie Lee-Potter from Food Blog Eggs on the roofMeet Charlie Lee-Potter from Eggs on the Roof

We thought it would be great for all of us to get to know each other before the event in August which is why we decided to launch a fun interview series. This way we won’t be complete strangers when the big day arrives but also our extended readership can benefit from discovering new blogs.

We kick-start the series with Charlie Lee-Potter, the charming food blogger from Oxford. She blogs over at eggsontheroof.com. Here’s what she told us:

What motivated you to blog about food?

I started to blog about food when I realised that all the stories I
wanted to tell and to photograph were either about food, inspired by food
and/or made even better by food.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I get inspiration from overheard fragments of conversation, or from
novels or from art exhibitions. There’s nothing you can’t turn into a food
blog post in my view.

What’s your favorite part of the food blogging process?

Not a helpful answer, but all of it – and that’s the truth. I do especially
like the arrival of comments on my blog though, I must admit.

What’s the hottest item on your shopping list?

What I would really like and will most likely never own, is a sous-vide
contraption. Or a wood-fired oven, which is completely and utterly out of
the question.

What’s your least favorite food?

Offal is awful, always.

Any comical kitchen failures?

My worst kitchen failure was when I attempted to cook a knitting-themed
dinner for a friend who was publishing a craft book. I dyed spaghetti blue
to make it look like tangled wool and it just went downhill from there.

    Charlie, can you tell us what photo equipment you use? What camera? any lights?

      HI Nando I use a Canon EOS 7D and more often than not my Canon macro lens. I try to use natural light if I can, but if the British gloom defeats me I have two small and versatile Lowel Ego lights. The other important piece of equipment in my bag is a Manfrotto tripod.
