60 seconds with returning Alumni Leila Brandao from My Delishville at #FBC15

Attending FBC conferences in 2010 & 2011, Leila (@mydelishville), blogger of My Delishville is retuning to #FBC15 this September!

IMG_1616Why is FBC an event you like to come back to?

The FBC workshops and the vibe were fantastic. It gives me the opportunity to meet not only new food bloggers but also to meet up with old ones, having been away from blogging for so long due to a babymoon.

Is blogging your full time job? If not, what is your day job?

No, I work full time in the oil and gas industry and am also a mum of a 2 year old girl and that keeps me very busy. I also have a passion for chocolate so when I have time I pretend that I am a chocolatier and I make my own range of chocolate truffles.

What first motivated you to blog and how has it changed your life?

My passion for good food and my gluten free diet. Blogging has inspired me to become a gluten free grain explorer and has given me the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people and products.

What is your signature dish?

My friends and colleagues would say that it is either my chocolate creations or my coconut and dulce de leche cake covered in whipped cream and red berries – very Brazilian.

How do you shop for food – supermarkets, farmer markets, local shops, online etc?

As I like to feel the food before I buy, I go to supermarkets and organic shops for most of my gluten free products. I love farmer markets but only go when the weather is good as I don’t have a good relationship with hard winters and rain.

You are given the opportunity to cook for anyone, who would you like it to be and why? What would you make them?

My grandparents. I inherited my love of food from them and they fed me with delicious homemade food all through my childhood. As I didn’t have the opportunity to cook for them when they were here, they would be my dream guests. I would make them out family signature dish, linguine with partridges or rabbit sauce.
