60 seconds with #FBC15 and Irish based Food, Travel and Lifestyle Blogger @MagdasCauldron

Returning this year for a second time to FBC is Irish blogger, Magda (@magdascauldron) from Magda’s Cauldron, who is looking forward to a lot that #FBC15 has to offer…

imageWhat are you looking forward to learning and enjoying at FBC this year? Which strEAT Party Feeders/Sponsors/Speakers have you most enjoyed engaging with at previous FBC’s?

I really loved the selection of different presentations at the last FBC, it covered everything from food to photography, to things I don’t think too often about like creating a media kit, blog security and SEO.

From the strEAT Party Feeders, I loved Moose Maple Butter, Farrah was really friendly and I loved her product, so simple and delicious. I would love to see more feeders that have lighter and less messy food. It’s really hard to talk and eat when the food is falling apart. From the speakers, my favourite ones were Marte Marie Forsberg and Monica Bhide, both brilliant speakers with loads of interesting tips. I would love to see Joy the Baker, Sarah from My New Roots, and for food photography Kinga from Green Morning. This year I hope to see as good speakers or even better.

Would you like to be a full time blogger and focus your professional career in this area?

I always wonder if my blog could be turned into a career and to be fair I don’t know the answer yet. What I know for sure is that I do enjoy photographing and writing and it feels great to have my own space to share it.

How many cookbooks do you own? Which cookbooks do you return to time and time again?

I’m starting to come to a place where I feel I own enough cookbooks, I actually should replace a few, but now I pick new ones more carefully. My not so latest hits are: Jerusalem and Plenty More by Yotam Ottolenghi and Brilliant Bread by James Morton.

What’s on your wish-list right now?

On my wish list currently there is a nice long photography workshop. I just can’t decide if it should be food, travel, or maybe I could do a mix!

What other influences or interests would you say make for a great blog – travel, fashion, tech, lifestyle? How is your lifestyle shaped by food?

I started to blog because I wanted to improve my cooking, but the longer I blog, the more links between food, culture, well-being and health I see. Food is so much bigger than recipes.
